The Scream Factory Unwraps New Darkman Artwork





The Scream Factory Unwraps New Darkman ArtworkThe Scream Factory is at it again. This time they have us drooling over the new artwork for the Sam Raimi 1990 classic Darkman. No release date or specs have been revealed yet, but you can expect this one some time in December.

Liam Neeson, Frances McDormand, Larry Drake, Colin Friels, Nelson Mashita star.

Synopsis
When attorney Julie Hastings (Frances McDormand) uncovers corrupt city real estate dealings, evil thugs attack her scientist boyfriend, Peyton Westlake (Liam Neeson). Left for dead after his lab is detonated, he miraculously survives when the ensuing blast hurls him into the nearby harbor. Treated as a John Doe at a city hospital, he is unknowingly submitted to radical therapy which numbs his nerves to feeling--but which heightens his strength and his emotions. Once conscious, Peyton escapes from the hospital and builds a ramshackle lab in an abandoned industrial plant. Horribly burned and scarred by the lab explosion, he uses synthetic skin to impersonate his would-be murderers and seek retribution for their evil deeds. Peyton also tries to reunite with Julie, who believes him to be dead. While the film has an average script, it is overcome by the flashy cinematography of Bill Pope, the bombastic score by Danny Elfman, and the well-choreographed direction of Sam Raimi. The director confidently walks the line between suspense, action, comedy, and romance as he examines a bitter, victimized antihero who risks becoming as monstrous on the inside as he appears on the outside.

Well they done fucked that up. The original artwork is one of my favorite posters ever. It had a badass dude partially engulfed in flame on top of a construction site. It was awesome. It was iconic. This is some ugly ass cartoons with a gun that shoots Darkman bullets.

I'm super pleased that it's going to Bluray but why can't they leave well enough alone?

No worries dude. All the Scream Factory Blu-rays come with reversible sleeves with the original artwork on the inside. You get the best of both worlds.
