Thank the maker, for Anchor Bay UK have finally put together a great package for the 3-disc Scanners release, coming our way to the UK on July 18th.
Scanners, the 1981 David Cronenberg original and the two sequels Scanners II: The New Order ('91) and Scanners III: The Takeover ('92) will all be presented in 16x9-enhanced 1.85:1 widescreen with DTS, 5.1 and 2.0 audio tracks, and all three films will be accompanied by trailers, stills, biographies and film notes.
