A horror classic in which a small group discovers that the human race is quietly being supplanted by alien beings devoid of emotion, the edgy thriller is directed by Oscar®-nominated master storyteller Philip Kaufman (Best Screenplay, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being, 1988; The Right Stuff) and stars an A-List cast of genre favorites and Hollywood heavyweights, including screen legend Donald Sutherland (The Puppet Masters, Animal House), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Brooke Adams (Days Of Heaven, The Dead Zone), Veronica Cartwright (The Invasion, Alien) and sci-fi icon Leonard Nimoy (“Star Trek: The Original Series”). A remake of the 1956 propaganda masterpiece, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers is timed to coincide with the August 17 theatrical release of The Invasion, the latest re-imagining of the timeless story starring Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge!), Daniel Craig (Casino Royale), Jeremy Northam (Gosford Park) and Jeffrey Wright (Casino Royale).

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Collector’s Edition
Under cover of darkness, while an unwary city sleeps, an alien life form begins to sow the seeds of unspeakable terror. Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy and Jeff Goldblum star in this shocking, “first-rate suspense thriller” (Newsday) that “literally chills the blood” (The Hollywood Reporter). One by one the residents of San Francisco are becoming drone-like shadows of their former selves. As the phenomenon spreads, two Department of Health workers, Matthew (Sutherland) and Elizabeth (Adams), uncover the horrifying truth: Mysterious pods are cloning humans – and destroying the originals! The unworldly invasion grows stronger with each passing minute, hurling Matthew and Elizabeth into a desperate race to save not only their own lives, but the future of the entire human race.
