The Man Who Fell to Earth arrives April 25 on 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray™ + Digital in an Exclusive Steelbook only at Best Buy



The perennial, cult-status epic starring David Bowie, The Man Who Fell to Earth, arrives on 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray™ + Digital in an Exclusive Steelbook only at Best Buy on April 25 from Lionsgate. Based on the 1963 novel by Paul Mayersberg and directed by sci-fi legend Nicolas Roeg, this impressionistic film offers contemporary audiences a timeless, poignant mirror in its exploration of the impact of capitalism and industrialization on the future of humanity and the planet. Newly restored for the first time in 4K Ultra HD, this ’70s classic will be available for the suggested retail price of $27.99.

 

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet on a mission to take water back to his home planet in the midst of a catastrophic drought. Featuring a startling and era-defining lead performance from Bowie in his debut feature role, Nicolas Roeg’s iconic science-fiction odyssey ― stunningly restored and now available for the first time on 4K ― endures, not only as a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world, but also as a poignant commentary on the loneliness of the outsider.

2023 Director : Jackson Publick Starring : Doc Hammer, James Urbaniak, Michael Sinterniklaas, Chris McCulloch, Clancy Brown, and JK Simmons  The Venture Bros.: Radiant is the Blood of the Baboon Heart is an absolute triumph that brilliantly continues the story of the beloved animated series. As a long-time fan, I couldn't be more thrilled with this new movie, which picks up right where season 7 finale left off. Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment has delivered a truly special piece of animation that had me from start to finish.
