30 years after it debuted, The Crow – starring Brandon Lee – is getting a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release in the UK. More here.

The latest example of a movie anniversary to make some of us feel really rather old? That’d be 1994’s The Crow, a film I remember driving through pouring rain to go and see. Famous of course for being the final movie of Brandon Lee, who died in a tragic on-set accident, it’s the best recreation of James O’Barr’s The Crow character on screen to date. A fresh take is due in cinemas this coming summer.

Before that, though, there’s the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray debut of 1994’s The Crow. Directed by Alex Proyas and co-starring Rochelle Davis, Ernie Hudson, Michael Wincott and Bai Ling, the film was an R-rated comic book film at a point where that wasn’t even a contentious thing to be.

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release then us coming via Paramount Home Entertainment, and it’s put in a release date of 6th May 2024 for it. In the first instance, it’ll be a Steelbook release, and we’re imagine a more modestly-priced regular edition isn’t too far behind.

What’s not clear yet is what the state of extra features will be. It looks as if the set comes with a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc, as well as a Blu-ray disc. That usually suggests that previous supplements are going to be carried across, but nobody’s listed them at the moment.  Will keep an eye out for them.

For the minute, you can find out about the release, and order yourself a copy, right here.

We’ll leave you with the official synopsis for the release…

The modern-gothic original that entranced audiences and critics alike comes to 4K Ultra HD™ for its 30th Anniversary. THE CROW tells the tale of a young musician brutally murdered alongside his beloved fiancée, only to be risen from the grave by a mysterious crow. Seeking revenge, he battles a criminal underground that must answer for its crimes. This supernatural superhero movie from director Alex Proyas (DARK CITY) was based on the comic book series and stars Brandon Lee in his tragic final performance.
