Deleted Scenes Revived on ‘Flatliners’ Blu-ray

Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (Best Actress, Juno, 2007), Diego Luna (Rogue One) and Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”) star in the contemporary take on the 90’s fan favorite Flatliners, debuting on digital December 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD December 26 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The supernatural thriller follows five medical students obsessed with what lies beyond the confines of life. They embark on a daring experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. Also experiencing the chilling consequences of exploring the one line that should never be crossed are James Norton (“War & Peace”), Kiersey Clemons (Justice League) and Kiefer Sutherland (the original Flatliners).

The bonus content for Flatliners on digital, Blu-ray and DVD includes two behind-the-scenes featurettes. “Just What the Doctor Ordered” catches the cast and crew reflecting on working with Director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), Dead Man Down), along with an interview from Niels on his directing style and vision. In “The Ultimate Question,” the cast and crew decide whether or not they would flatline if they could and offer the revealing reasons behind their decisions.

The Flatliners digital and Blu-ray releases are loaded with additional exclusive bonus material, including deleted and extended scenes, plus two more behind-the-scenes featurettes. The featurette “Reviving a Cult Classic” explores the differences in tone, concepts and creative design from the original film and the update, featuring comments from producer and film icon Michael Douglas, while in “Making the Rounds,” the cast shares what intrigued them most about their characters, their experiences on the set, and their favorite film moments.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev with a story by Peter Filardi and a screenplay by Ben Ripley, Flatliners was produced by Laurence Mark, Michael Douglas and Peter Safran and executive produced by Michael Bederman, Robert Mitas, David Blackman, Brian Oliver and Hassan Taher.

    This movie took such a beating from critics that I actually kind of want to watch it now just to see if it’s really that bad.

    How exactly are the special features going to “revive” this film? I’ve never watched a movie that was bad or I absolutely hated and said “boy that movie was terrible, but those special features were great!”

    • J Jett

      i think Mr. D was just using “revive” as a play on words since the movie itself is about people dying and being revived. 🙂

      • Necro

        Thanks J! I really didn’t think of it (obviously) that way.

  • Travis_Bickle

    This movie was great….said no one…

  • Demented Daniel

    This movie didn’t even get a chance to flatline. It was D.O.A.

  • KSE1977

    Ahh, on video soon, just the way it was always intended to be watched. Seriously, movies like this will still get a viewing for me, but I cannot put up with the mass of humanity at a theater for this.

  • Barry El Beardo

    I actually enjoyed this. It wasn’t great but fun cinema fodder.
    I rate it a lot higher than The Mummy and Murder on the Orient Express! XD
