The original 1979 poster.

The Black Hole” was the the first Disney movie with a PG rating. “At $20 million, plus another $6 million for the advertising budget, it was at the time the most expensive picture ever produced by Disney. The movie earned nearly $36 million at the North American box office, making it the 21st highest-grossing film of 1979″, says Wiki.

I really loved this comment to the post by Wolfman which just says it all: “One of my favs as a kid and still love it with a passion. The effects and print still hold up today. I watched it on blu-ray a few years back. Has to be one of Disney’s darkest movies, well that and The Hunchback of Notre Dame!! “Hellfire” jeepers. Two of the best robots too. Who couldn’t love Roddy Mcdowall voicing VINCENT and Slim Pickins playing the broken southern BOB. Incidentally I’m posting a mix later of a robot music mix i’ve done featuring those two and few other robotic friends from film.”

    • Inspired to watch it again now as the rain falls this gloomy Sunday afternoon. Went looking for it and I find it’s never been released on Blu-ray, maybe it was up scaled on the telly, it did still look fantastic I must add. I wonder why it has never had a proper updated release? Screaming out for one with some good extras.
      BTW that middle poster is mighty fine indeed. Gonna replace my 2001 phone lock screen with that for a while 🙂
