The Dark Ink has a nifty poster of the Black Hole (1979), available in limited quantities for $50 by Mark Daniels of the dark sci-fi Disney epic directed by Gary Nelson that sported an all-star cast of Maximilian Shell, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forester, Yvette Mimieux, Ernest Borgnine, the voices of Slim Pickins, and Roddy McDowell as old B.O.B. and V.I.N.CENT. Of course, the real star of the movie, the vicious "android" Maximilian, is front and center in the poster. Check it out:
Sweet isn't it?
This reporter for one has pleasant memories of the VERY under-rated and dark movie that Disney really hasn't given the due it deserves on DVD or Blu-Ray. The movie along with Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974), helped fuel my love for science fiction though specifically androids and cyborgs. My mind still is embedded with the cold callous machine of Maximilian who still is a sight to behold after all these years. Along with just the awing design of the Cygnus and just trippy score from John Barry (Instra Land Records released a complete score two years ago and yes I so snagged that the moment I heard about it).
Dammit Disney give this movie it's proper due already! Enough bare-bones DVD/Blu Ray. EXTRAS and a good transfer! I demand it!!! You're even about to remake the movie directed by Joseph Kosinski, that nice fella who also made Tron: Legacy (2010). Alright, enough talk; this article needs more MAXIMILIAN (and V.I.N.CENT) :
