Warner Bros. To Release Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining On 4K Ultra HD & Digital On October 1st

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that The Shining, Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying 1980 horror masterpiece, will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray and Digital on October 1. The 4K remastering is of Kubrick’s original 146 minute version of the film which premiered in the United States on May 23rd, 1980.

Now widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made, The Shining was directed and produced by Kubrick, who wrote the screenplay with Diane Johnson. The film was based on the novel “The Shining” by Stephen King, and stars Jack Nicholson in an iconic role as Jack Torrance, Shelley Duval as Wendy Torrance, Scatman Crothers as Dick Halloran, and Danny Lloyd as Danny Torrance.

The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick’s former personal assistant Leon Vitali worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process.

On May 17th, the restored 4K version of the film will be screened at The Cannes Film Festival.

In 2018, The Shining was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film ranked 29th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Thrills list, and Jack Torrance was named the 25th greatest villain on the AFI’s 100 Years…100 Heroes and Villains list. Additionally, the quote “Here’s Johnny” from the film was ranked 68th on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movie Quotes list.

Ultra HD showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider color spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before.

The Shining Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with HDR, a Blu-ray disc with the film in high definition and the special features in high definition, and a Digital version of the movie. Fans can also own The Shining in 4K Ultra HD via purchase from select digital retailers beginning on October 1. The Ultra HD Blu-ray of The Shining will include more than three hours of previously released special features.

Spoke Art Announces Kubrick – An Art Show Tribute Opening On September 6, 2014

15010669492_366f4c4a57_b

Spoke Art is proud to present: Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick. Over 60 artists were invited to re-imagine their favorite characters, scenes and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors. Spanning a plethora of mediums from sculpture and painting to limited edition prints, the show seeks to honor one of the 20th century’s most significant directors while also reinterpreting his impact in a contemporary context.

Widely known for his controversial techniques and highly controlled directorial style, Kubrick has fabricated a diverse repertoire of films and imagined worlds for his viewers. One of the great idiosyncratic masterminds in history’s cinema, Kubrick has cultivated a noteworthy genre completely his own. Critical discussions of humanity, morality and social justice all appear in his work regularly.

Contextually disparate but psychologically banded, all of Kubrick’s films challenge the viewer both intellectually and ethically. A true auteur, Kubrick’s work pushes our understanding of human nature to severe place. Extreme violence, salaciousness and deranged psychological behavior are commonplace motifs instrumented to establish Kubrick’s pessimistic undertones. Even through satire, Kubrick manages to take levity to a place of lunatic proportion.

All the artists were allowed to select the film of their choosing, there were no guidelines on subject matter or content. Each artist was given free reign to re-interpret and render their take on Kubrick’s entire cinematic collection. Resulting in a variegated display, KUBRICK is an experiment in modernity, a cross-section between film and art.

Participating Artists include Aaron Jasinski, Adam Maida, Akira Beard, Alex Kirzhener, Anarkitty, Audrey Pongracz, Bartosz Kosowski, Brian Ewing, Brian Methe, Bruce White, Chris Skinner, Christine Aria Hostetler, Crowded Teeth, Cuddly Rigor Mortis , Cuyler Smith, Dave MacDowell, David Moscati, Doug LaRocca, Eiko Ojala, Fernando Reza, Gene Guynn, Geoff Trapp, Glen Brogan, Guillaume Morellec, Irma Rivera, Ivonna Buenrostro, Jayde Fish, Jen Mann, Jesse Riggle, Jessica Deahl, Johannah O’Donnell, John Wentz, Jon Wayshack, Joshua Budich, Justin, VanGenderen, Kate Zambrano, Kate Copeland, Kiersten Essenpreis, Mandy Tsung, Matt Dye, Meghan Stratman , Michael Ramstead, Epyon 5, Nan Lawson , New Flesh, Nicole Gustafsson, Oliver Barrett, Rhys Cooper, Robert Wilson, Sam Gilbey, Sam Ho, Sam Smith, Sandi Calistro, Sarah Joncas, Steve Yamane, Thomas Walker, Tim Maclean, Tim Jordan, Tim Doyle, Tracie Ching, Van Orton Design, Veronica Fish and Vincent Aseo.

Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick will open on September 6, 2014 and run until September 27th 2014. Spoke Art is located at 816 Sutter St. San Francisco, CA 94109.

New Poster For The Documentary, Room 237

db_posters_22821

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, Scatman Crothers’ chef Hallorann warns Danny Lloyd’s Danny to stay the hell away from room 237 of the Overlook Hotel — which turns out to excellent, if ignored, advice.

But while room 237 is to be avoided, the new documentary Room 237 is a must-see. The work of first-time director Rodney Ascher, the film showcases the theories of five obsessive Shining fans as to what Kubrick really intended with his Stephen King adaptation and features footage from both that snowy chiller and many others.

Room 237 opens theatrically on March 29 and will also be available on VOD, SundanceNOW, and other digital outlets from that date.
