A Stanley Kubrick classic is getting the anniversary treatment. Dr. Strangelove will be released on Blu-ray in a new 45th Anniversary Special Edition on June 16. We don't have any cover art or full special features details as of yet, but the disc will be priced at approximately $39. We'll surely keep you updated on any developments with this new BD disc. The film stars Peter Sellers and Sterling Hayden.
Stanley Kubrick's black comedy classic about an "accidental" nuclear attack received four Oscar nominations (including Best Picture, 1964). Convinced the Commies want to pollute America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed general (Sterling Hayden) orders a nuclear air strike on the U.S.S.R. As his aide, Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers), scrambles to unlock a recall code to prevent the bombing, the U.S. President (Sellers again) calls a drunken Soviet Premier on the hotline claiming the proposed attack is all a silly mistake, while the President's advisor (an ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) verifies the existence of a dreaded Doomsday Machine - a retaliatory device designed by the Soviets to end the human race once and for all!
