John Connor [DVD News 07.15.22] cyberpunk scifi action thriller adventure



Here's some interesting news. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Robert Longo's cult cyberpunk flick Johnny Mnemonic: In Black and White (1995), a new black and white version of the movie starring Keanu Reeves, Dolph Lundgren, Takeshi Kitano, Ice-T and Henry Rollins.

The cut created by Longo premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and is supposed to be really moody and unique.


The release will include a commentary from Longo AND William Gibson and Keanu Reeves. It is scheduled to arrive on the market on August 16.


Description:
The first and only feature film from visual artist Robert Longo, Johnny Mnemonic is a sci-fi prophecy of the current world. Johnny, played by a pre-Matrix Keanu Reeves, is a human data courier in the dystopic future 2021. He battles corrupt corporations and internet overlords during a global pandemic, all to recover the memories he exchanged for data storage.

26 years after its original release Robert Longo has revisited his cult classic Johnny Mnemonic, converting it into black & white. This marks the premiere of Longo’s black & white version of the film.
