Redford and Newman Films Coming Up (Updated)

Posted March 13, 2013 04:01 PM by Webmaster

20th Century FoxTwentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray two classic films: Stuart Rosenberg's Brubaker (1980), starring Robert Redford, Yaphet Kotto, and Morgan Freeman, and Sidney Lumet's The Verdict (1982), starring Paul Newman, Charlotte Rampling, and Jack Warden. Street date is May 7th.

Update: Technical specs, supplemental features, and official cover art has been added up.

Brubaker

Robert Redford stars in this potent drama based on the real life story of Tom Murton, the prison superintendent who rocked Arkansas politics when he exposed scandalous abuses and murders in a state prison. Posing as a new prisoner, Brubaker (Redford) discovers vast corruption in a state penitentiary before revealing himself to be the new warden. His personal crusade to bring reform puts him in grave danger, especially when he insists on exposing a series of secret murders that took place years earlier. Powerful and disturbing, Brubaker won acclaim for its gritty realism and Oscar-nominated screenplay.

Special Features:
  • Trailer & TV Spots
The Verdict

Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. Frank Galvin is a boozy washed-up attorney with a losing streak a mile long. So when he's handed a lucrative out-of-court settlement, everyone expects him to take the money and run. But Frank is tired of running and recklessly brings the case to court...only to discover that if finding the whole truth is a little like trial an error, then finding real justice is a lot like trial by fire.

Special Features:
  • Paul Newman: The Craft of Acting
  • Milestones in Cinema History: The Verdict
  • Sidney Lumet: The Craft of Directing
  • Audio Commentary with Director Sidney Lumet and Star Paul Newman
  • Two Additional Featurettes

Great news about "The Verdict". More Newman is always a good thing. Here's hoping "Nobody's Fool" is on the horizon soon.

Brubaker!

It should look pretty good if it got a new 2K scan and with little to no use of DNR.

Fox has been on a roll recently with picture quality in their catalog titles... THE VERDICT is an essential film, a day one purchase.

The Verdict is an excellent movie and one of Newman's best. It has an outstanding supporting cast too. I am looking forward to replacing my DVD.

I hope they use the posters shown as covers for the Blu-ray release!

I'm excited to see these two films on high definition. Hopefully, no DNR!

I'm not one to get hot and bothered about cover art, but THE VERDICT poster would be an awesome choice, rather than the generic 'bathed in a holy light' image of Newman we got for the DVD.

Here's hoping...
