The set will also come with a Blu-ray disc of legacy Blu-ray features, including the nearly four hour long documentary 'Dangerous Days', often referred to as one of the best making of features ever prepared, alongside a raft of featurettes, deleted scenes, trailers and audio commentary by director Ridley Scott.
