Arrow Video to Release Withnail and I on Blu-ray

Posted September 2, 2013 03:47 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Bruce Robinson's Withnail and I (1987), starring Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, and Richard Griffiths. A preliminary street date and supplemental features to be included on this upcoming release are yet to be revealed.

Bruce Robinson's celebrated cult comedy starring Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. It's the end of the 1960s and two out-of-work actors, Withnail (Grant) and 'I' (McGann), subsist on a diet of booze, drugs and fags in their revolting Camden flat. In order to escape the depressing nexus of visits from their dealer and the months of untouched washing-up, they escape to the country, with the intention of getting some R and R at a cottage owned by Withnail's uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths). However, things do not exactly go as planned, Withnail being particularly unsuited to the quiet social mores of countrypeople. The pair's friendship starts to become sorely tested amid the vicissitudes of their 'holiday'. More ominously, uncle Monty appears in person seemingly with something of an eye for 'I'.

It's one of the best British films ever made.

Watched it for the first time June this year and I really liked it! Some great over-the-top situations and while the ending was a bit somber it really fit the movie perfectly.

I hope this means a new and cleaned up transfer...

Another reason why Arrow is the best in the business.

Is this similar to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the 3rd UK BD release for this title?
I love the film, but it's a bit odd to see so many releases in such short period of time.

This is my all time favourite, I personally rank it among the cinematic masterpieces. If the transfer is in the least improved upon it will make my day as I thought the first release left a lot to be desired and I never bothered with the second release as it got even lower marks for PQ. But I'm not expecting any miracles.

A true British classic in every sense of the word; the characters are hilarious, the situations are over the top (I mean who goes on holiday by mistake?) And most of all the dialogue is so quotable that you'll be quoting it for months.

I would hardly call it cinematic, it is very theatrical but it is a really great movie.

It's a terrific bleak comedy from the people that made the equally interesting How To Get Ahead in Advertising. I hope Arrow's release uses a recent scan from a suitable film source, that was one of the major issues with previous HD releases of the film.

Apparently, it will be a 2k resto from James White.

This was just released a few week ago in the UK by Studiocanal as a steelbook. I wonder if Arrow are going a new transfer?
I may have to see if there is a difference and pick this up.

The drinking game for this movie would kill most people
