Withnail and I cinema re-release

PostPosted by DonaldTwain » Mon Jul 14, 2014 12:45 pm

Hello people,
This weekend I met Paul McGann at the London Film and Comic Book Convention (He was there is a Doctor Who capacity). Although we only met him very briefly he told us that there is to be a re-release of the film in UK cinemas in August. I've googled a bit to see if there is any information out there and so far I've not found anything but let's keep our eyes peeled! Any body have any more information?

Has anyone heard anymore about this?

August is nearly over and the newspapers are saying the South will be wiped out by a storm this weekend...

No news from my local cinema, but I'll keep watching...last time I saw the film on the big screen was back in 1999 at an open air showing in King's Park, Perth WA :thumbup:

I heard about your weather. Has Hawaii blown away yet? How about that Gaza?

http://www.arrowfilms.co.uk/withnail-i/ (3rd October for the cineme re-release, apparently)

These guys are also releasing the remastered, brand new restoration (from original negatives) of Withnail on Blu-ray (with DOP Peter Hannan signing off on it before they release it). Trust me, these guys really seem to care.

Great... I'm already shattered not to be in the UK for next year's performance of "Hamlet" by Benedict Cumberbatch... and NOW THIS! The fuckers will rue the day. :shock:

So... I'm confused. Is it coming out in the theaters again, or is it just being re-released on DVD? "Cinema re-release" makes it sound like it will be in theaters.

It's getting a remastered Blu-ray and cinema release, both by Arrow.

I'm guessing the cinema release is only happening in the UK?

Ha! Actually, I LIVE in NY. I just pre-ordered my personalized, numbered box set. Supposedly to be delivered to me in October. That gives me some time to find a Blu-Ray player that will play UK Blu-Ray DVDs. I sent an email to Arrow, and they indicated that all the re-released DVDs will only play on Region 2 players. The fuckers will rue the day.

It's also showing at FACT in Liverpool, IFI in Dublin, Hackney Picturehouse. Those are the dates I'm aware of at the moment.
