‘The Truman Show’ Headed to 4K Ultra HD July 4 for 25th Anniversary

Paramount Home Entertainment will release director Peter Weir’s The Truman Show on 4K Ultra HD newly remastered for its 25th anniversary.

Starring Jim Carrey, the film, released on June 5, 1998, earned more than $264 million worldwide and was nominated for three Academy Awards.

Carrey stars as Truman Burbank, a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Truman doesn’t realize that his quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary creator (Ed Harris), that folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, and that even his incessantly bubbly wife (Laura Linney) is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise, and his response leaves viewers laughing, crying, and cheering.

The Truman Show has been fully remastered using scans of the original negative, with the new 4K version approved by Weir. The film is presented with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.
