‘Full Metal Jacket’ Summary
Director Stanley Kubrick’s gritty drama focuses on a group of young men both before and during their excursion into the Vietnam War. Adapted from Gustav Hasford’s novel The Short Timers, the film features an impressive ensemble cast that includes Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Vincent D’Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey, Arliss Howard, and Dorian Harewood.
Warner has not yet detailed the technical and supplementary specifications for this two-disc Digibook release, preliminary box art suggests that the first disc will be identical to the already-available Deluxe Edition. That version presented Full Metal Jacket in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio with a 5.1 LPCM audio track, and included the theatrical trailer, a feature length commentary, and behind-the-scenes featurette titled Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil. The 25th Anniversary Edition adds a DVD containing the feature-length Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes documentary. The studio has not yet set a release date for this 25th Anniversary Edition, though it is now available for Amazon pre-order.
