The first and only UK Blu-Ray release (so far) of Manhunter came in 2011,  but
unlike the MGM bare-bones disc of the same year, came laden with extra features.

There are two featurettes both taken from the 2001 Anchor Bay release.. The first
short feature is called 'The Manhunter Look', a conversation with Cinematographer
Dante Spinotti. The second is 'Inside Manhunter' in which the main stars look back
at their experience of making the film.

The most prominent extra feature is a standard definition presentation of Michael
Mann's preferred cut with his commentary track ported over from the 2003 Anchor
Bay DVD.

The trailer rounds off the special features.

This version of the film has been superseded by improved version in the US and France, but is the easiest way to get hold of Manhunter in HD in the UK.
