Starting September 27th, CineLife Entertainment, Compass International Pictures, and Trancas International Films will begin screening a newly restored and remastered digital print across 1,000+ screens in more than 10 countries.
Now, before you go, “New digital print? So what!”, know that it was all supervised by the film’s original cinematographer: the legendary Dean Cundey. Not too shabby, seeing how he established the film’s entire aesthetic.
Hell, even Carpenter sounds excited: “I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters, as we prepare for the release of the sequel,” he says, likely playing Spider-Man. “Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable.”
