A special screening at the Tribeca Film Festival will celebrate the Aug. 9 release of 20th Century Studios’ Heat on 4K Ultra HD Disc for the first time.
Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and writer-director Michael Mann will reunite at this year’s Tribeca Festival June 17 for the first public premiere of the new 4K Ultra HD version of Michael Mann’s 1995 classic. The screening will be followed by an on-stage conversation, moderated by journalist and filmmaker Bilge Ebiri.
In Heat, in the wake of a precision heist of an armored truck, an obsessive detective (Pacino) begins to hunt ruthless, professional thief Neil McCauley (De Niro) through the streets of Los Angeles. As the stakes escalate, their lives begin to mirror and unravel, and McCauley’s crew initiates its most dangerous and complex heist. The film co-stars Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Amy Brenneman, Diane Venora, Natalie Portman and Jon Voight.
The remastered film on disc includes previously released audio commentary with Mann, Q&As, deleted scenes and more extras.
Also on Aug. 9, Mann’s first novel, Heat 2, which tells an original story woven from the lives of the characters in Heat, both before and after the events depicted in the movie, will be published.
