Somehow this flew under my radar. Dig the cover art, it's classic.


Official release date is 7/3/2012. Amazon's got it up for order already (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006YZOXHQ/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=cognitrespon-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B006YZOXHQ).
Jane Fonda stars as the titular heroine who lands on the planet Lythion in the year 40,000. Faced with robots, monsters and evil of varying stripes, she must vanquish her enemies, all while attempting-and failing-to keep her skin-tight spacesuit on. Along the way she receives assistance from a variety of handsome men, each of whom receives her uninhibited appreciation. Directed by Roger Vadim (Fonda's ex-husband), Barbarella is a kind of sexual Alice in Wonderland of the future and the film is replete with psychedelic set designs, far-out characters and an outrageously entertaining story set amongst the stars.

The Barbarella Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English Mono Dolby TrueHD, French Mono Dolby Digital and Spanish Mono Dolby Digital and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles. The Blu-ray includes the theatrical trailer in high definition.

Barbarella was released October 10th, 1968 and stars Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg, Milo O'Shea, Marcel Marceau, Claude Dauphin, Véronique Vendell, Giancarlo Cobelli. The film is directed by Roger Vadim.

Would like to see it get more extras or a commentary, but I guess that's not happening.

So according to Blu-ray.com (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Barbarella-Blu-ray/37010/#Review) the transfer is awesome and it's not zoomboxed anymore.

I need this.
