THX 1138 Director’s Cut on DVD

While George Lucas blockbuster STAR WARS trilogy DVD set, which streets Sept. 21, 2004, is getting all the buzz both positive and negative Lucas debut from 1971, THX 1138, makes its welcome DVD bow on Sept. 14 (Warner Home Video, $26.99). This DIRECTORS CUT, like the STAR WARS films, contains extended footage with ILM-produced CGI; however, it merely adds greater scope and detail to the underground factory, where Robert Duvall and company work in a dull, depressing and dehumanized futuristic society.

Bonus features on this two-disc set include:* Audio commentary from Lucas and co-writer and sound effects designer Walter Murch* Theater of Noise sound effects only track* Scene-specific Master Sessions with Walter Murch* A Legacy of Filmmakers: The Early Years of American Zoetrope doc (which recounts Francis Coppolas indie studio/talent incubator in San Francisco).* Artifact From the Future: The Making of THX 1138 doc* ELECTRONIC LABYRINTH George Lucas USC student film from 68
