Deliverance is considered by many to be one of the best films of all time. The legendary four leads -- Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox (the Total Recall trailer has us intrigued, a remake of Cox's 1990 hit) -- recently sat down at Warner Bros. studios with Movie Fanatic for an interview to exclusively reflect on the film’s fortieth anniversary. To say it was an honor for us, is an understatement.
The film has arrived on Blu-Ray for the first time in a classic “book” format with loads of new information and features. When Deliverance arrived in 1972 it shocked the world. Nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, it became the hallmark of director John Boorman’s career, and two years ago, it became historic as the picture was given the highest honor of placement in the U.S. Film Registry for preservation.
