"Cobra" New Collector's Edition in Blu-ray
Shout! Factory’s horror imprint, Scream Factory set to release a new collector’s edition Blu-ray of Sylvester Stallone’s 1986 cult-classic actioner Cobra January 22, 2019.
The new Blu-ray offers a new 2K scan of the film and several new extras, including “Stalking and Slashing,” an interview with actor Brian Thompson; “Meet the Disease,” an interview with actor Marco Rodriguez; “Feel the Heat,” and more.
The initial reception for Cobra was harsh by critics enticing the public to believe the film a failure. Fans responded slaying critics when Cobra debuted Memorial Day weekend #1 at the box office taking in over $15.6-million, more than double it's contender Top Gun and broke the previous years record held by Rambo Pt 2.
The title track "Feel the Heat" by Jean Beauvoir (Plasmatics, Ramones, KISSS) entered Billboard's Hot 100 in the US, hit "Top 10" charts across Europe and Australia and was featured in heavy rotation on MTV and VH1 for months upon release.
Cobra went on to become a huge financial success taking in over $160-million, over six times its original $25-million budget. The movie and soundtrack are still selling today with both receiving high reviews through Amazon and other outlets.
