Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for its 65th birthday: more on the release here.

Something that’s occasionally forgotten when talking about the work of Alfred Hitchcock is just how big and mainstream his films were. Because he’s now such a revered movie director, he tends to get boxed in towards art house classics sections, when actually, so many of his films are very, very broad churches.

Which leads me to North By Northwest. It took me a while to get to the film for the first time, but this is in its own way a big, broad, blockbuster film. Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason star, in a film that’s got some ambitious set pieces in it. And, well, it’s just a hell of a rollercoaster, that really holds up. Not bad for a movie that’s celebrating its 65th birthday.

And, as you can probably guess from the title of this very article, North By Northwest is also coming to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for the very first time.

In the first instance, it’s arriving in a special collector’s edition Steelbook set. As well as the film on 4K, there’s quite the crop of extra features carried over on the Blu-ray that’s also in the pack. Plus, the collector’s set comes with this little lot as well…

  • Film on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-Ray
  • Steelbook (Artwork TBC)
  • Rigid Slipcase with Detachable Lenticular (Artwork TBC)
  • Matchbox Capacity Envelope
  • Paper Premiums:
  • A3 Double-Sided Vintage Poster
  • Double-Sided Vintage Art Card
  • Double-Sided Vintage Bookmark
  • 3x Double-Sided BTS Art Cards
  • 40 Page Booklet

And of course there’s the 4K remastering itself too.

The set has gone up for preorder now, and whilst the exact date hasn’t been announced, some point over the summer would seem logical for the movie. As soon as we get a confirmed date, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, you can find the listing for North By Northwest right here, and you can order a copy there too.

Our 4K release list is here.
