Lionsgate will release Oliver Stone’s 1991 Jim Morrison biopic The Doors on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and digital 4K July 23.
The film stars Val Kilmer as Morrison in the story of the rock group The Doors, with a cast that includes Meg Ryan, Kevin Dillon, Kathleen Quinlan and Kyle MacLachlan.
The Doors: The Final Cut features a new 4K restoration supervised by director Oliver Stone, plus Dolby Vision HDR and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
“During the many concert sequences, the sound now fills the auditorium above the audience, behind it, and all points in between,” said director Oliver Stone. “I wanted the film to be as immersive as possible to a real ‘60s Doors experience.”
Stone also cut three minutes from a scene he said was superfluous to the ending, “which helps close out the film in a more powerful way.”
Bonus materials include new interviews with Stone and sound engineer Lon Bender, and an audio commentary with Stone.
