12 Angry Men Gets UK Releasde Date

Posted January 21, 2013 04:15 PM by Webmaster

20th Century Fox20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to release on Blu-ray Sidney Lumet's classic drama 12 Angry Men (1957), starring Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb and Martin Balsam. The preliminary release date set by the studio is June 3rd.

Adapted from Reginald Rose's television play, this film marked the directing debut of Sidney Lumet. At the end of a murder trial in New York City, the twelve jurors retire to consider the verdict. The man in the dock is a young Puerto Rican accused of killing his father, and eleven of the twelve jurors do not hesitate in finding him guilty. However, one of the jurors (Henry Fonda), reluctant to send the youngster to his death without any debate, returns a vote of not guilty. From this single event, the jurors begin to re-evaluate the case, as they look at the murder - and themselves - in a fresh light.

Note: Blu-ray.com has reviewed the U.S. release of 12 Angry Men, courtesy of Criterion, here.

Look at how lame that looks compared to Criterion's. You'd think that if a studio is releasing a film that Criterion has already released, that they would put more effort into the cover art at the very least.

^ I agree with you, no one can beat Criterion when to comes to V/A transfers, extras, and cover arts. The only downside to them is that they are region locked.

'Release' is spelt wrong.

@mishal

Need not be a problem if you get a region free player.

Why this isn't everyone's first thought when buying a BD player is absurd to me, but there we go.

Mishal...i agree partly on the "no one can beat Criterion....transfers extra.."and i buy them as they are verry good indeed....but....dont forget MOC...look at Metropolis...Die Nibelungen...and ther's a few others wich are better then the criterion releases by a small margin,nevertheless....small is a LOT in the end when you project movies on a 90"screen...
i bought a region B player mostly cause of the MOC releases,and it has been worth it!
just look at the recent "gate of hell" from MOC,read the review..that one is going to be released by Criterion also,well see how it holds up against it soon..
both companies are on par,the best in the movie business when it comes down to the overall package we get,just awesome what they release,the quality...
if only all companies would have such people working on their movies,a dream...
yours,Peter

While I had to plump for Fox's version of The Thin Red Line with it's nasty photo shopped cover I'm aware the film is practically the same print as the Criterion edition although their cover so much classier, I'm so glad I got my multi region player and managed to bag their edition of this utter masterpiece.

Once again Fox have provided another shocking sleeve, the gorgeous Criterion treatment of their packaging almost makes you think we are talking about 2 entirely different films and colour as well, it's horrible!!!!

@peterraes

You're confusing Criterion with Kino. Metropolis and Die Nibelungen were released by Kino.
