First ever 4K UHD restoration of ‘Don’t Look Now’ to open in UK cinemas this July!

Studiocanal has announced that the first ever 4K, Ultra High Definition restoration of Nicolas Roeg’s iconic thriller, DON’T LOOK NOW, starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland, will open in cinemas across the UK on 5 July 2019.

This version of the film will also be released on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as a new Collector’s Edition, on 29 July, which will include previously unseen extras material and newly commissioned artwork by illustrator Jeremy Enecio.

On a cold, bright autumn day in Suffolk, England, a little girl in a red mackintosh drowns in a pond – the daughter of John (Sutherland) and Laura Baxter (Christie). Trying to recover from the tragedy, the couple arrive in Venice, Italy, where John has been commissioned to restore a church. In the eerie atmosphere of the lagoon city in winter, they encounter two strange sisters. Laura is suddenly released from her grief when one of them, a blind psychic, tells her that she is in contact with her dead daughter. Angered and sceptical, John carries on with his work, but witnesses an unsettling vision of his own: a little girl in a red mackintosh disappearing into the Venetian alleys.

As a wave of killings haunts the city, Laura returns to England to visit their son after an accident at his school. But the premonitions don’t stop: John suffers a near-fatal accident high on the church scaffolding, and then he glimpses his wife, supposedly hundreds of miles away, on a private launch flanked by the two mysterious sisters. The local police are intrigued by and even sympathetic to his story, but cannot help. As Venice and his fate closes in on John, illusion, reality and sudden terror spiral the story to its grotesque climax, as the design in director Nicolas Roeg’s mosaic becomes unforgettably clear.
