John Carpenter’s ‘They Live’ Getting Epic 4K Ultra HD Collector’s Edition (UK) Blu-Ray

John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi horror classic They Live is getting an epic 4K Ultra HD collector’s edition UK Blu-Ray from the awesome folks over at Studiocanal on October 29, 2018. Head on down to check out the badass artwork, including a direct pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

The 2018 restoration of They Live was made using the original camera negative which was scanned at 4K resolution in 16bit and we applied the ACES workflow to the restoration process which resulted in the creation of a 4K DCP, UHD version and a new HD version which were produced with the same high technological standards as today’s biggest international film releases.

Synopses: “Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens.

The restoration and new UHD version was colour graded and approved in Los Angeles by the Cinematographer, Gary B. Kibbe (ASC).
