And here's the original announcement and cover art:

We have some “A-number one” updates to report today regarding our upcoming (and highly-anticipated) Collector’s Edition of John Carpenter’s legendary film Escape from New York:
  • Here’s an exclusive first look at the official newly-commissioned artwork which comes courtesy to us from artist Paul Shipper ( Halloween: The Complete Collection). Snake is centrally focused of course, but we felt that it was important to showcase the incredible ensemble cast who are all vitally important to the film too. Purists can rejoice: The iconic original poster art with the beheaded Statue of Liberty will be on the reverse wrap and we wouldn’t dream of not including it!
  • Extras (new & existing) are still in progress and will be announced in full details sometime in Feb. This is a 2-disc blu-ray set and will exceed the previous DVD special edition.
  • Last and not least (and which will be good news to fans hoping this would happen):

    We have created a brand new 2K High Definition scan of the inter-positive, struck from the original negative.

  • This is a Region A release. Street date is 4/21. You can pre-order the release directly from us @ Amazon and other fine online retailer pre-order links should be going up soon in the upcoming months. Note: If you do order from us on ours site, you’ll receive it two weeks earlier than the national street date and receive an 18” x 24” poster of the new art. Please keep in mind that the poster is only made in limited quantities.
