previous DVD edition released by VCI, along with a new, high-definition transfer (and much more attractive packaging).
In the mid twenty-first century, mankind has reached a point in its
technological advances to enable colonization of the far reaches of the
universe. DARK STAR is a futuristic scout ship traveling far in advance
of colony ships. Armed with Exponential Thermostellar Bombs, it prowls
the darkest reaches of space on a mission to seek out and destroy
unstable planets ahead of the colonist. But there is one obstacle that
its crew members did not count on -- one of the ship's thinking and
talking bombs is lodged in the bay, threatening to destroy the entire
ship and crew! DARK STAR was originally intended to be a 68 minute film.
Jack Harris, the Hollywood producer, convinced the filmmakers to shoot
15 minutes of extra footage and he released the expanded version
theatrically in 1975 through Bryanston Pictures.
The suggested retail price is a very reasonable $19.95; Amazon already has it listed for pre-order at a discounted price of $14.99.
