Fatal Attraction just will not be ignored.

Paramount Home Entertainment will release the hit controversial thriller April 16 on special edition DVD (prebook March 5) at a suggested $24.99.

The 1987 film, which stars Michael Douglas as an unfaithful husband and Glenn Close as the psychotic woman with whom Douglas' character becomes involved, garnered six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director (Adrian Lyne), Best Actress (Close), Best Supporting Actress (Anne Archer as Douglas' wife), Best Adapted Screenplay (James Dearden) and Best Editing.

It earned $156.6 million at the domestic box office.

The disc will feature new cast and crew interviews, a new featurette that examines the film's cultural impact, a behind-the-scenes look at the film's production, rehearsal footage, the alternate ending (with introduction by Lyne) that was deleted following negative preview audience reactions, a commentary track with Lyne, and theatrical trailer.

It features an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital and Dolby Surround English tracks and a French stereo track.

Paramount will support the release with ads in People, TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, Premiere, US Weekly, Newsweek and Talk magazines.
