Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray director David Lean's classic film The Bridge on the River Kwai 4K (1957), starring William Holden, Alec Guinness, Jack Hawkins, Sessue Hayakawa, and James Donald. The release will be available for purchase on October 3.
Fully restored in 4K resolution and presented with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos audio, The Bridge on the River Kway won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (David Lean) and Best Actor (Alec Guinness).
In 1997, The Bridge on the River Kwai was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected for the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress. The American Film Institute included it among the best American films ever and in 1999, the British Film Institute voted it the 11th greatest British film of the 20th Century.
Synopsis: When British POWs build a vital railway bridge in enemy-occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean's epic World War II adventure The Bridge on the River Kwai. Even its theme song, an old WWII whistling tune, the Colonel Bogey March, became a massive hit. The Bridge on the River Kwai continues today as one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time.
