    SANTA MONICA, CA (May 20, 2019) — In 1991, Oliver Stone crafted a psychedelic and powerful musical portrait that brilliantly captured the furious energy of the ‘60s and the myth of The Doors’ iconic front man, Jim Morrison - the man whose music shaped an era. Two decades later, Lionsgate presents a stunning new 4K restoration — The Doors: The Final Cut — supervised by Oliver Stone and brought to life with Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos®, which will take audiences back in time, into the world and sound of the psychedelic ‘60s when thefilm arrives on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Digital 4K Ultra HD on July 23. Relive Val Kilmer’s hypnotic performance as the legendary Jim Morrison, alongside stellar performances from Meg Ryan, Kevin Dillon, and Kyle MacLachlan, who tell the story of The Doors’ humble beginnings in Los Angeles to the height of their popularity.



    “This brand-new 4K restoration of The Doors in Dolby Atmos® will provide far greater overall clarity and dimension for the audience. During the many concert sequences, the sound now fills the auditorium above the audience, behind it, and all points in between. I wanted the film to be as immersive as possible to a real ‘60s Doors experience,” said director Oliver Stone. “Additionally, I’ve made one cut of three minutes to a scene I thought was superfluous to the ending, which helps close out the film in a more powerful way.”



    Remastered from the original negative that was scanned in 4K 16-bit on ARRISCAN at FotoKem US, the restoration was managed by L’Immagine Ritrovata in Italy with the close support of Oliver Stone who oversaw the color grading. The 4K release was re-mastered using Dolby Vision® HDR and Dolby Atmos® technologies for an unprecedented immersive experience. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. Dolby Atmos transports you from the ordinary to the extraordinary through breathtaking moving audio that flows all around you. When listening to The Doors perform throughout the film, Dolby Atmos will allow you to hear incredible clarity with every sound and greater spatial separation of instruments, vocals, and harmonies. The Dolby Atmos® mix was created at Formosa Group under the supervision of Dolby and the original sound editors of the film: Wylie Stateman and Lon Bender. This new mix will offer audiences a unique, immersive experience of the amazing film soundtrack, which includes over twenty-five songs from The Doors back catalogue.

    Available for the first time in this absolutely stunning format, The Doors: The Final Cut 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Digital 4K Ultra HD will feature brand-new artwork, a brand-new interview with Oliver Stone and sound engineer Lon Bender, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99.

    I lived through the ‘60s, but was a bit too young when this group was popular. In the ‘70s, I was in University and a “stuck up sticky beak” (as Monty Python would put it), who only listened to classical music. Now to the point — when this movie came out, I had never heard of “The Doors”.

    Ahhh -- two 50's and right into the 70's

    Went to college and roomed with a couple Music Majors right at the end of Vietnam and Watergate build up and fallout (pretty good for a Hard Science Major)-- one who was a huge Prog Rock -- so I got tons of exposure to everything related to the unusual, experimental, rock+poetry (esp hallucinogenic inspired) music. Lots of Yes, ELP, Morrison, Wakeman, Moraz, experimental Beatles, Hendrix Experience, early Moody Blues, pre-popular Genesis and Fleetwood Mac and then some. Not just the music, but the stories, backstories, legends, rumors, 'lies' -- Keith Moon stories more than Keith Moon music.

    So, wait - This is Stone's final cut, with three minutes excised from the ending. But there's no theatrical cut included?

    It's prolly on the included blu-ray ... And the Doors were notorious for being banned from Veterans' Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix ...

    They also notoriously appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show - which was must see TV on CBS for our family - with Jim Morrison (perhaps ;)) on some um substance ...
