David Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ to be Re-Released in Cinemas

The movie involving Bowie’s first major cinematic role has its 40 year anniversary celebrated with cinema re-releases on 9th September across England according to Pitchfork.

For those who may not have seen or heard of this movie before, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ was a science fiction movie which was released back in 1976 and follows the story of Thomas Jerome Newtown (played by Bowie himself), an alien who came to earth on a mission to back water to his home planet so that it doesn’t completely dry-up. The movie currently has an 83% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 74% rating on Metacritic.

Thanks to STUDIOCANAL, the movie has been restored to a 4k resolution which will be used for the cinema release. They will also be making a DVD and Blu-ray release which will be available on 10th October and is also expected to be released in the US and Germany too.

The re-release of this movie will be a lot more meaningful considering that the star himself unfortunately passed away earlier this year after his battle with cancer.
