Tearing Apart the Labyrinth. The Deets on the 4K 35th Anniversary Release.

1 Aug

Fans of David Bowie can rejoice! Not only are we getting a proper transfer of the film to this ultra high definition format instead of a downscaled version from the last release, but also there’s new material to look at! Just how limited this release will be depends on whether box stores will carry it or one has to order from Amazon USA (link provided here). If anything, here’s the breakdown of the contents!

SYNOPSIS
From visionary filmmaker Jim Henson comes the unforgettable fantasy favourite LABYRINTH, now celebrating its 35th anniversary. A 16-year-old girl (Academy Award® winner Jennifer Connelly, Best Supporting Actress, A Beautiful Mind, 2001) is given 13 hours to solve a dangerous and wonderful labyrinth and rescue her baby brother when her wish for him to be taken away is granted by the Goblin King, played by the iconic David Bowie.
