New Release: Showgirls 15th Anniversary Sinsational Blu-ray

Showgirls movie scene with Gina Gershon and Elizabeth BerkeleyMGM Home Entertainment gave the 1995 movie Showgirls its debut on high-definition Blu-ray on June 15, 2010.

The notoriously campy film stars Elizabeth Berkley as a woman dreaming of making it big as a Vegas showgirl and Gina Gershon as a successful showgirl who sees Berkley as a threat. The sexy movie has a 14% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but it’s one audiences love to laugh at.

Directed by Paul Verhoeven, whose Basic Instinct was followed up by Showgirls and campy sci-fi Starship Troopers, Showgirls also stars Kyle MacLachlan, whose Dune arrived on Blu-ray on April 27.

On DVD, Showgirls was issued in its initial release, a Fully Exposed Edition and a VIP Limited Edition. The Blu-ray, a combo pack including the movie on high-definition as well as on DVD, is the Showgirls: 15th Anniversary Sinsational Edition.

The Blu-ray’s special features are the same as on the Fully Exposed and VIP DVDs. Here’s the list:

  • Pole Dancing: Finding Your Inner Stripper
  • Lap Dance Tutorial Featuring the World Famous Girls of Scores
  • Scene commentary by David Schmader
  • Trivia
  • A Showgirls Diary

The Blu-ray is distributed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and was released with the price of $29.99.
