Lawrence of Arabia is one of the most restored movies in cinematic history. Just five years ago for it’s 50th anniversary in 2012 David Lean’s masterpiece got a pristine 4K restoration to mark the occasion, but don’t think that means anyone’s done with it yet. Lawrence of Arabia is returning to theaters soon in 70mm, the way it was meant to be seen, and the new trailer is fittingly gorgeous.
Well, this is a surprise. Plenty of historical miniseries have been cleaning up on the small-screen these days, most notably with History's mammoth 'Hatfields & McCoys' success, and it seems 'Independence Day' director Roland Emmerich wants in on the action. Emmerich has begun development on a 'Lawrence of Arabia' miniseries, retelling the famous tale iconically brought to life by Peter O'Tool
How great is David Lean's 'Lawrence of Arabia'? So great that though it was made by a British director, shot in the middle east, and made with an international cast, the American Film Institute once named it the fifth greatest American film of all time, and they've also named it cinema's greatest epic. Now it's fifty, and it's being reissued.
For it's fiftieth anniversary, 1962's best picture winner 'Lawrence of Arabia' was given a new restoration that will be shown off when the film returns to theaters October 4. That also means that there's going to be a new home video edition, and they've produced a special edition Blu-ray set that will be available November 13.
