Years before creating Star Wars, George Lucas created a very different science fiction drama, which is given an attentive presentation on DVD in this release. This edition of THX 1138 has been given a letterboxed transfer to disc in the widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1, which has been enhanced for anamorphic play on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio has been remixed and mastered in Dolby Digital 5.1; in addition to the original English-language soundtrack, dubbed versions in French and Spanish are also included, as well as optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish. Bonus materials include a commentary track from director Lucas and sound designer Walter Murch, and the film's original trailer.
