VIDEO: 1.90:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen) 4K UHD HDR

RELEASE DATE: 5-25-2021
A man (Jay Duplass) and his teenage daughter (Sophie Thatcher) have a contract to mine precious gems on a moon with a poisonous atmosphere. Things go wrong and the teenage girl has to ally herself with someone else (Pedro Pascal) to survive.

PROSPECT is the little sci-fi movie that could. It manages to create an expansive sci-fi universe from the setting, costumes, production design, and the little bits in the story. This feature film is based on the 14 minute short film from DUST. PROSPECT shows you can create a great sci-fi movie without huge budgets and battle scenes with loads of CGI. The limitations and low budget has created a sci-fi classic you should watch if you're looking for something other than the standard sci-fi action fare that is common in the marketplace of movies and TV.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
The 4k UHD disc provides a cleaner and sharper picture and the new blu-ray (from the 4K remaster) is better than the original blu-ray MOD from two years ago. The blu-ray has a combo of old and new extras.

Audio commentary with the two directors of the movie in addition to a new 2021 introduction to the film by the filmmakers. There is a new interview with both directors as they reflect back on the making of the movie. The original short film from 2014 that formed the basic for the feature film is finally included on blu-ray.

A behind-the-scenes featurette that clocks in less than five minutes as the directors show and talk about the prop shop they built to create the props, costumes, and sets in addition to filming on location in a rain forest for three weeks as the actors had to endure hot costumes. Three Scene Analysis featurettes- two with the VFX supervisor and one with the costume designer. Also a few mini-featurettes are included on the production design and VFX

Two deleted scenes including one that has a character that doesn't appear in the final cut.

FINAL ANALYSIS: PROSPECT is an impressive low budget sci-fi feature. The 4K UHD blu-ray combo release is an improvement over the original blu-ray from new extras (like the original short film) to a better transfer.
