Jim Sheridan's In the Name of the Father Gets UK Release Date

Posted February 14, 2013 05:35 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thThe UK branch of Universal Studios has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray acclaimed director Jim Sheridan's In the Name of the Father (1993), starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Pete Postlethwaite, and Alison Crosbie. The preliminary release date set by the studio is June 3rd.

The true story of the group of Irish men dubbed the Guildford Four, the victims of a miscarriage of justice that saw them convicted of bombing a soldiers' pub in 1974. Daniel Day-Lewis plays Belfast wideboy and petty crook Gerry Conlon, who, along with his father (Pete Postlethwaite) and two friends, is forced into a false confession claiming responsibility for the terrorist attack. 'My Left Foot' director Jim Sheridan focuses on the father-son relationship as well as the long-running appeal against their sentences, led by their determined solicitor (Emma Thompson).

One of the few remaining titles on my all time top 100 finally goes Blu, great news! For those of you who haven't seen it, don't hesitate, buy it and enjoy, I envy you. It's one of the best films of the 90's and one of the best in Daniel Day Lewis brilliant career

Hallelujah!! Freaking love this movie, possibly my all time fave DDL movie. The subject matter, the cast, the music, everything comes together so well in this one. Been looking forward to this for a long time. Hope it gets a nice upgrade, the last DVD I watched I think had Dolby 2.0 only and PQ left a lot to be desired.

Will import this one right away if no NA version is announced.

I'd like to see this one in a digibook, but either way I'm very happy about more Daniel Day-Lewis on blu. Now we need My Left Foot.

I agree with dobyblue on this one, the dvd release on this great film was pretty much a joke. As far as North America was concerned I think it was just a basic bare-bones release with pan and scan only.. Hopefully it'll get a proper release and not some massively DNR'd scrubbed to death release. Looking forward to whats being said about it.

^^ While the extras were anemic on all DVD releases of this film, the North American R1 did contain an anamorphic widescreen transfer. The European R2 releases did, however, have 5.1 audio tracks whereas the R1 sufficed with a 2.0 track.

Why are so many Universal titles getting a U.K. release only first!? It's seriously starting to tick me off. This is a great great film. And I've been waiting for this on blu.
