It’s hard to believe Popeye, the live action film starring Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall, has never been available on Blu-ray. But it’s true! The Robert Altman-directed comedy has been released several times to DVD, (and of course earlier to VHS), but never in the higher resolution 1080p format. (Although, you can stream or download a Digital HD version of Popeye on iTunes, Amazon Prime, and other services.)
The first Blu-ray edition of Popeye celebrates the 40th anniversary of the film and includes over 30 minutes of new bonus material such as “Return to Sweethaven: A Look Back with Robin and the Altmans.” (See a list of extras below).
The Blu-ray combo edition of Popeye from Paramount Home Entertainment also includes a code to redeem a digital copy. We’ll post the disc audio and video specs once received.
