BRINGING OUT THE DEAD HITTING PARAMOUNT 4K/BLU IN SEPTEMBER

by | Jun 24, 2024


Martin Scorsese’s brilliant BRINGING OUT THE DEAD finally lands on 4k and Blu-ray from Paramount this September 17 as part of their Paramount Presents series, and is packed with new special features from my Reverend Entertainment. The film, starring Nicolas Cage, Patricia Arquette, Tom Sizemore, Ving Rhames, John Goodman, and Marc Anthony, is easily the legendary director’s most underrated film, and has never made it beyond DVD until now. Anyone who has followed me for any amount of time knows I have long had this movie at the top of my “wish list” of titles I would like to work on, and the journey to bring it together has been a long one. After several years of bothering my internal team at Paramount about my desire to see this happen, we finally got the green light, but it would take over 24 months to cross the finish line due to Cage’s incessant filming schedule and Scorsese’s work on KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON. I tell the story about this project on the latest episode of THE JUSTIN BEAHM RADIO HOUR podcast that features an interview with Paramount Head of Marketing Todd Sokolove. The end result is nothing short of amazing, with a plethora of new bonus material, including new interviews with Scorsese, Cage, writer Paul Schrader, and cinematographer Bob Richardson. In addition, the Paramount archive team was able to find all the raw on-set interviews done back in 1998 that I fleshed out into individual pieces featuring Arquette, Sizemore, Goodman, Rhames, and Anthony. Truly a dream project and the greatest honor. Pre-orders are open now on Amazon. Details below after the screenshot of a post I put up in 2020 when I was continuing my mission to make this happen.
