Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is commemorating the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List with a brand-new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release.
Also available on Blu-ray and DVD, the film is being released on 25th February as a special anniversary featuring an all new bonus feature, Schindler’s List: 25 Years Later, where Spielberg joins actors Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Embeth Davidtz and Caroline Goodall to reflect on the making of the film and its legacy.
Earning 12 Oscar nominations and 7 awards including Best Picture and Best Director, the film true story tells the true story of Oskar Schindler (Neeson), who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust.
It is the triumph of one man who made a difference and the drama of those who survived one of the darkest chapters in human history because of what he did.
Meticulously restored from the original film negative in pristine high definition and supervised by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List is a powerful story whose lessons of courage and faith continue to inspire generations.
The film also earned Oscars for composer John Williams, screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York, American Gangster) and director of photography Janusz Kaminiski, as well as art directors Allan Starski and Ewa Braun, editor Michael Kahn and producers Gerald R. Molen and Branko Lustig.
Neeson received a Best Actor Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of Oskar Schindler.
Ralph Fiennes’ (The English Patient, the Harry Potter series) star-making performance as the cruel Nazi commander, Amon Goeth, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, as was Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Hugo) in the role of Schindler’s Jewish accountant, Itzhak Stern.
