Studiocanal today (21 October) has released two rock ’n’ roll cult-classics, STARDUST and THAT’LL BE THE DAY as part of the Vintage Classics collection.
Directed by Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Gorillas in The Mist), this British Musical Drama is the follow up to THAT’LL BE THE DAY and, like its predecessor, features a wealth of British musical talent in the supporting cast, including Adam Faith, Marty Wilde and Keith Moon.
Aspiring rock star, Jim MacLaine (David Essex – That’ll be The Day, Silver Dream Racer), is back with The Stray Cats (Paul Nicholas, Keith Moon, Dave Edmunds and Karl Howman) and is in desperate need of a road manager. He seeks out his old friend Mike (Adam Faith) who takes up the monumental task of keeping Jim on track whilst he rises to fame. The sweet taste of success begins to turn sour as Jim immerses himself in hedonism and loses sight of who he used to be.
For the 2019 restoration of STARDUST STUDIOCANAL went back to the original camera negative where possible and alternative sources where severe damage that could not be repaired was encountered. These elements were scanned at 4K resolution in 16bit. The project involved over 200 hours of manual frame by frame fixes and resulted in the creation of a new DCP, and HD version which were produced with the same high technological standards as today’s biggest international film releases.
