MVD Preps ‘Rain Man’ 35th Anniversary Edition for 4K UHD, Blu-ray Release

MVD Entertainment is preparing a special 35th anniversary edition of the Dustin Hoffman/Tom Cruise classic Rain Man for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and standard Blu-ray Disc release on May 30.

The 1988 film won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay (Ronald Bass and Barry Morrow), Best Actor (Hoffman) and Best Director (Barry Levinson).

Rain Man is making its 4K Ultra HD format debut with a new restoration (a just-completed 4K high definition 16-bit scan of the original camera negative) approved by Levinson and presented in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio in Dolby Vision/HDR.  
  
Rain Man stars Hoffman and Cruise as estranged brothers on a road trip unlike any other across America. Charlie Babbitt (Cruise) has been given the news that his recently deceased father has left his entire fortune to his autistic brother Raymond (Hoffman), who he did not know existed. In a crass bid to grab some, if not all, of the inheritance, Charlie abducts Raymond and what begins as a money-making scheme for Charlie turns into a journey of discovery between brothers who are worlds apart. 
  
The two-disc 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray 35th Anniversary Edition includes hours of bonus content, including three audio commentaries (one with director Levinson, one with co-writer Morrow and a third with co-writer Bass). Also included are several making-of and behind-the-scenes featurettes, a deleted scene, and the original theatrical trailer.
