Screen legends Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins deliver sensational, Oscar-winning performances in this spellbinding thriller based on the bestselling novel by Thomas Harris (Red Dragon, Hannibal). A psychopath nicknamed Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine, Heat) is murdering women across the Midwest. Believing it takes one to know one, the FBI sends trainee Clarice Starling (Foster, The Accused) to interview a demented prisoner who may provide clues to the killer’s actions. That prisoner is psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins, Nixon), a brilliant, diabolical cannibal who agrees to help Starling only if she’ll feed his morbid curiosity with details of her own complicated life. As their relationship develops, Starling is forced to confront not only her own hidden demons, but also an evil so powerful that she may not have the courage—or strength—to stop it! This terrifying masterpiece co-stars Scott Glenn (The Challenge) and garnered five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Jonathan Demme (Philadelphia) and Best Adapted Screenplay for Ted Tally (Before and After), only the third film in history to sweep these five categories.

UHD is a fad and everyone knows it. Criterion's 2018 release is 4K director approved restoration, going to be very hard top that for this up coming reissue.
Stop speaking for everyone! I see you're back to being nothing, but negative again in this thread and I'm sick and tired of it.

I like 4K discs and will continue to buy them and i hope Kino will release more of them.
The same here! They're releasing Misery on 4K/UHD and its latest BD release from Shout! Factory was only three months prior to Criterion's Blu-ray release of "Silence of the Lambs".

Kino's MGM deal make no sense, as it's hard to improve on what Shout and Criterion do with their releases on the first go around. It's like Kino must love living in their shadows like a younger brother or sister does with their older siblings.

Then don't buy those 4K discs. I'm sure there will be plenty of us that will be buying them, even those of us, like myself, who already owns those Shout and Criterion Blu-rays. I love the 4K format! I'm just happy that Kino has taken that step while Criterion hasn't done so yet.

While I have zero interest in their (or anybody else's) UHD releases, I can't help but wonder why you even bother visiting the KL thread(s) as your continual crapping on them sounds like someone with a personal grudge. Why don't you comment on releases that you have an interest in rather than dumping on releases you have no interest in.

If you don't like what I have to say, you do know you can just ignore it.

Criterion didn't have anything to do with the transfer, it was one done by MGM and supervised by the film's cinematographer Tak Fujimoto, not the director, Demme passed away April of 2017. Criterion released an HD version of the transfer, we're releasing the Dolby Vision HDR version of the transfer, both were color graded and approved by Fujimoto.

It's funny, can you tell me how Kino has hurt you? We could release the lost version of The Magnificent Ambersons and you would show up saying something negative about the release and/or our label. Why do you post on this KLSC thread, don't you have something better to do?

Sorry, but there was absolutely nothing restored. It was merely a 4k scan.

A true 4k release from Kino is extremely welcome!

Coming October 12th!

Vera Cruz (1953)
• Brand New 2K Master
• NEW Audio Commentary by Filmmaker Alex Cox
• TRAILERS FROM HELL with John Landis
• Theatrical Trailer
• Reversible Art
• Limited Edition O-Card
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 94 Minutes 2.00:1 Not Rated
Legendary screen icons Gary Cooper (High Noon, Beau Geste) and Burt Lancaster (The Train, Elmer Gantry) team up for a magnificent, action-packed western from director Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen, The Last Sunset). With sweeping vistas and larger-than-life heroics, it’s a tale as bold and rugged as the characters it so brilliantly depicts. Cooper and Lancaster portray Benjamin Trane and Joe Erin, two daredevil mercenaries who journey to Mexico in search of adventure—and cold hard cash—during the 1866 revolution. But they get more than they bargained for when the wealthy and beautiful Countess Duvarre (Denise Darcel, Westward the Women) hires them to escort her (and a fortune in gold!) to Emperor Maximilian’s fighting forces in Vera Cruz. The trail is fraught with danger, betrayal and murder... and when Ben is swept up in the revolutionaries’ fervor, he and Joe find themselves at odds with the Mexican Army—and each other! Adapted by Roland Kibbee (Valdez Is Coming) and James R. Webb (The Big Country) from a story by Borden Chase (Red River), Vera Cruz features supporting turns from Cesar Romero (TV’s Batman), George Macready (Gilda), Jack Elam (Rawhide), Ernest Borgnine (Marty) and Charles Bronson (Breakheart Pass).

Wonderful film, long overdue. A favorite anecdote I love to tell is that when Lancaster first approached Cooper about the picture, he turned him down cold, saying he always gets top billing. Lancaster replied, "Aw, hell, is that all you're worried about? I'll take second." Cooper then agreed to read the script and of course did the film. It speaks volumes about Lancaster that he knew what was important and didn't let his ego get in the way (unlike Steve McQueen, who passed on "Butch Cassidy" because he wouldn't take even "co-equal" billing to Newman). Coincidentally, four years later, the same thing happened with Gable on "Run Silent, Run Deep," and again Lancaster deferred to the older actor, even though Gable's role was much smaller.
