ELECTRIC DREAMS BLU-RAY

The 1984 film (with a rather epic 80s soundtrack) Electric Dreams will make it's Blu-ray debut with this new edition coming later this month in the UK.  Jeff Lynne has two original songs in the film Video! and Let It Run.  The new Blu-ray will include fresh bonus features about the making of the film.  It will, however, only be able to be viewed in the UK because it is a Region 2 release.

Release date in the UK: 25 July 2017
