4K Restoration of Rebel Without a Cause to Receive International Premiere at Berlin Film Festival

Posted January 14, 2014 06:04 PM by Webmaster

Park CircusWorldwide repertory film distributor Park Circus announced today that the spectacular 4K restoration of Rebel Without a Cause from Warner Bros. and The Film Foundation will receive its international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. Restoration funding for Rebel Without a Cause was provided by Warner Bros., GUCCI, and The Film Foundation.

Nicholas Ray's iconic film Rebel Without a Cause immortalised James Dean and captured the zeitgeist of America in the 1950s perfectly. Nearly 60 years after the actor's tragic death, his explosive performances remain as powerful today as when they first appeared in cinemas.

In addition to the restoration of Rebel Without a Cause Warner Bros. has also restored, in 4K two other James Dean classics, Giant and East of Eden. James Dean's roles in East of Eden and Giant brought him two Oscar nominations. His posthumous nomination for the former was the first of its kind for the awards ceremony and was the only film in which he starred to be released before his death.

Along with Rebel Without a Cause, Dean's performances in Giant and East of Eden ensured the star left a lasting legacy that cemented his place in popular culture and film history.

Following the international launch at Berlin, Rebel Without a Cause, Giant and East of Eden will be released theatrically in international territories throughout 2014.

Note: The three films mentioned in this announcement are already available on Blu-ray. You can read our reviews of the U.S. Blu-ray releases here, here and here.

There has to be a way of fixing the squashed look that Rebel, Eden and others have. If they carefully stretched the middle section vertically and then cropped it back to a rectangle, a small amount of image would be lost but it would surely make for a more pleasing viewing experience.

Is this Gucci and Film Foundation financed effort the same master used for the U.S. blu-ray release? Did not realize. Knew it was 4k but didn't know they had a hand in it. Awesome news.

-jonny-, that is inherent to the CinemaScope lenses the film was shot with. To attempt correction of the distortion would be detrimental to the original look and extremely expensive. Best to leave it how it is.

i remember reading in dvdclassik that RWAC had been reissued in french cinemas last year, i assume it was an older copy, or this wouldn't be the "international premiere".
