David Bowie's 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' Gets 4K Restoration, Theatrical Run
Published Jul 07, 2016The late, great David Bowie continues to be celebrated, with fans clinging to his massive, impressive body of work. It's not just limited to music, either. Following news that his film Absolute Beginners was getting a 30th anniversary re-release, Bowie's film The Man Who Fell to Earth is due for a 40th anniversary edition.
The film has been treated to a 4K restoration from Deluxe London for STUDIOCANAL, who plan to bring their high-quality version of the release back into cinemas.
Deluxe London used scans of the original film's negatives to bring it back to life. The new version has the blessing of cinematographer Anthony Richmond and the blessing of Nic Roeg.
For now, the restored version of The Man Who Fell to Earth is set for release in the UK in September. Plans for North American screenings are forthcoming, and the 4K version will also receive a Blu-ray and DVD release.
