Sci-fi classic Soylent Green is getting a Zavvi exclusive Blu-ray Steelbook release in September.
Soylent Green is landmark science fiction film, a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thom, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022.
He’s trailing a murderer – and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. Vividly realised, Soylent Green’s world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart – a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G.Robinson in his moving screen farewell.
- Commentary by Richard Fleischer and Leigh Taylor-Young
