TMWFTE 40th anniversary 4K restoration
“Loving The Alien”
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Nicolas Roeg’s iconic movie, The Man Who Fell To Earth, we’re delighted to announce that the film will return to UK cinemas in 4K this September.
STUDIOCANAL has announced that they are near to completing a new 4k restoration of the cult classic. The restoration has been in the works since late 2015 and it will be released in cinemas nationwide in the UK on 9th September by Park Circus, opening at BFI Southbank and cinemas nationwide.
The Man Who Fell To Earth will also be released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on 10th October by STUDIOCANAL and is part of the ‘Vintage Classics collection’ – showcasing iconic British films, all fully restored and featuring brand new extra content.
Restored by Deluxe London, the restoration of The Man Who Fell To Earth is based on a 4K scan of the original camera negative, followed by a full 4K workflow, with the approval of cinematographer Anthony Richmond and with the blessing of Nic Roeg.
As well as the main poster artwork, there will be a limited edition poster to celebrate the release made available through various promotions and competitions. (See blue version in montage)
Bowie is magnificent in the film as Thomas Jerome Newton, a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet on a mission to take water back to his home planet, which is in the midst of a catastrophic drought. Bowie’s performance is timeless and that’s not to mention him looking absolutely incredible throughout...with and without human disguise.
Full details of the DVD/BD release, including a special Collector’s Edition, will follow shortly.
The film will also be released in the US and Germany, stay tuned for more information.

Bowie and the missing soundtrack: the amazing story behind The Man Who Fell to Earth
David Bowie is rumoured to have written a score to the sci-fi classic that’s locked up in some vault. But the truth is much stranger – involving screaming maids, boozy brawls and coke-induced hearing hallucinations
There is a great mystery at the heart of The Man Who Fell to Earth, Nicolas Roeg’s cult film: its soundtrack. There is a persistent rumour that long-lost music for the film – recorded by its star David Bowie – sits somewhere in a vault. There’s only one problem: Bowie’s soundtrack to The Man Who Fell to Earth doesn’t actually exist. The music that appears in the film – released for the first time next month as part of a collector’s edition by Studio Canal and a vinyl box set by Universal – was written and produced by John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas...

“What is this music Farnsworth keeps sending me?”
As you are no doubt aware, to tie-in with the theatrical release of STUDIOCANAL’s 40th Anniversary 4K release today of The Man Who Fell To Earth, Universal Music Catalogue (UMC) has released for the very first time in any format, the original movie soundtrack containing music by John Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas fame (who composed specifically for the film), and Stomu Yamash’ta.
This UMC version (order here), makes available both musicians compositions used in the film, along with many other of John Phillips’ pieces that didn't make the final cut.
If you know TMWFTE well, you’ll be astonished how evocative each piece is, conjuring immediately the scene from whence it came.
Go here for the full tracklisting of the CD version and the upcoming vinyl and the deluxe 2CD/2LP box set due November 18th.
We’ve been privileged enough to see the sumptuous artwork for all of the versions, and it has to be said that one of our favourite designers, Phil Smee, has produced a thing of beauty.
FOOTNOTE: Today’s 'lyric' quotation is actually dialogue from the film between Thomas Jerome Newton and Mary Lou, from the scene depicted in our picture. In it, TJ is particularly irritated by a piece of music (playing on the ahead-of-the-curve WE digital player), that Oliver Farnsworth has supplied.
TJN: What is this music Farnsworth keeps sending me? I don’t like it. ML: Some German composer TJN: I’d like to hear people singing, let’s have singing, find some singing.
Mr Newton will be pleased to learn that the soundtrack does indeed have people singing. He might also be relieved to find out that the particular piece that displeased him so, didn’t make it to the CD.

_________________ I still adopt the view that music itself carries its own message. That’s why I’m furious you didn’t get to hear the album because the lyrics taken on their own are nothing without the secondary sub-text of what the musical arrangement has to say.
