• The Remains of the Day Arrives on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on February 21, 2023

    Posted Mon Oct 31, 2022 at 05:37 PM PDT by

       James Ivory's 1993 drama starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson will be hitting the 4K UHD Blu-ray format on February 21.

    Oscar®-winners Anthony Hopkins (1991, Best Actor, The Silence of the Lambs) and Emma Thompson (1992, Best Actress, Howards End) reunite with the acclaimed Merchant Ivory filmmaking team for this extraordinary and moving story of blind devotion and repressed love. Hopkins stars as Stevens, the perfect English butler - an ideal carried by him to fanatical lengths - as he serves his master, Lord Darlington, beautifully played by James Fox (The Servant). Darlington, like many other members of the British establishment in the 1930s, is duped by the Nazis into trying to establish a rapport between themselves and the British government. Thompson stars as the estate's housekeeper, a high-spirited, strong-minded young woman who watches the goings-on upstairs with horror. Despite her apprehensions, she and Stevens gradually fall in love, though neither will admit it, and only give vent to their charged feelings via fierce arguments.

    The 4K UHD Blu-ray includes a Digital Copy and features Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, as well as a commentary, deleted scenes, featurettes, and theatrical trailer.
