Olivier Stone’s The Doors ‘Final Cut’ Getting 4K Release

In 1991, Oliver Stone crafted a psychedelic and powerful musical portrait that brilliantly captured the furious energy of the 60s and the myth of The Doors’ iconic front man, Jim Morrison – the man whose music shaped an era.

Two decades later, Studiocanal presents a stunning new 4K restoration – THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT- supervised by Oliver Stone and brought to life with Dolby Atmos®, that will take audiences back in time, into the world and sound of the psychedelic 60s.

This brand new 4K restoration of THE DOORS in Dolby Atmos® will provide far greater overall clarity and dimension for the audience. During the many concert sequences, the sound now fills the auditorium above the audience, behind it, and all points in between. I wanted the film to be as immersive as possible to a real 60s Doors experience” said director Oliver Stone. “Additionally, I’ve made one cut of 3 minutes to a scene I thought was superfluous to the ending, which helps close out the film in a more powerful way.”

This new mix will offer audiences a unique, immersive experience of the amazing film soundtrack, which includes over twenty-five songs from The Doors back catalogue.

THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT will be screened in 4K for the first time in Cannes at the Cinéma de la Plage (Movies on the Beach) during Cannes Classics, before a limited theatrical run via Carlotta in France starting on June 26th.

This summer, Studiocanal will also launch in France, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and New Zealand a series of new Home Entertainment editions featuring brand new artworks and exclusive bonus material, including a 4K Ultra HD, a 2-disc Blu-Ray combo with hours of in-depth special features, a Steelbook edition and a new DVD.
