Superb cover art for both Nashville and A Place in the Sun.

I’ll easily splurge on this one for the upgrade of a 4K transfer.

The 4K iTunes version is glorious. The 4K restoration is coming to UK cinemas this summer.

Robert Altman’s 1975 masterpiece NASHVILLE, shot on location in country music’s capital, is to be re-released by BFI Distribution in selected cinemas UK-wide from 25 June 2021 in a glorious 4K restoration, screening for the very first time in the UK. The film will have an extended run at BFI Southbank – a highlight of the forthcoming Robert Altman retrospective season. ROBERT ALTMAN: AMERICAN OUTSIDER, running 17 May – 31 July, will feature screenings of 34 films from Altman’s remarkable career, spanning five decades.

Groundbreaking Films Arrive on Blu-ray™ this August with New Bonus Content

WKASsEYg.jpeg


Three acclaimed cinematic classics join the collectible Paramount Presents line with the Blu-ray release of A PLACE IN THE SUN and NASHVILLE on August 10, 2021 and BUGSY MALONE, making its U.S. Blu-ray debut on August 31, from Paramount Home Entertainment.



A PLACE IN THE SUN

Director George Stevens’ masterwork A PLACE IN THE SUN won six* Academy Awards® and is widely considered one of the finest works of America cinema. Remastered from a 4K film transfer in celebration of its 70th anniversary, the film is presented on Blu-ray with a brand-new Filmmaker Focus featuring film historian Leonard Maltin talking about George Stevens and the innovative film techniques he used for this unforgettable story of ambition, passion, and betrayal. The disc also includes previously released bonus content, including commentary by George Stevens, Jr. and Ivan Moffat, retrospective cast and crew interviews, and a segment on George Stevens featuring filmmakers who knew him.



Montgomery Clift stars as George Eastman, a young man determined to win a place in respectable society and the heart of a beautiful socialite (Elizabeth Taylor). Shelley Winters is the factory girl whose dark secret threatens Eastman’s professional and romantic prospects.



NASHVILLE

Director Robert Altman’s seminal film NASHVILLE remains an essential classic of 70s cinema with its complexly textured portrayal and critique of America’s obsession with celebrity and power. Newly remastered from a 4K scan of original elements, the film is presented on Blu-ray with a new featurette entitled “24 Tracks: Robert Altman’s Nashville.” The disc also includes a previously released commentary by Altman.



Fittingly, NASHVILLE is Volume 24 of the Paramount Presents line as the film follows 24 distinct characters with intersecting storylines over five days in the titular city. The phenomenal ensemble cast includes Ned Beatty, Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Karen Black, Geraldine Chaplin, Henry Gibson, Michael Murphy, Lily Tomlin, Shelley Duvall, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, and Barbara Harris.



BUGSY MALONE

Acclaimed director Alan Parker redefined the movie musical with his first feature-length film, BUGSY MALONE, which celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. Available for the first time in the U.S. on Blu-ray, the film has been remastered from the original elements for this limited-edition release. The Blu-ray includes a new Filmmaker Focus delving into this early work from the director of Fame, The Commitments, Pink Floyd: The Wall, Mississippi Burning, and Evita.



Set in 1929 New York City, BUGSY MALONE captures a flashy world of would-be hoodlums, showgirls, and dreamers—all portrayed by child actors. As Tallulah, the sassy girlfriend of the owner of Fat Sam's Grand Slam Speakeasy, future superstar Jodie Foster leads a talented cast. Parker’s sharp script, combined with the music and lyrics of Paul Williams, makes for an irresistible satire that’s truly one-of-a-kind.



The limited-edition Paramount Presents Blu-ray Discs™ come in collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of each film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments. Each disc also includes access to a digital copy of the film.
