RAN BY AKIRA KUROSAWA WILL BE SCREENED AT CANNES CLASSICS IN 4K
30 years after its original release in France, STUDIOCANAL decided to restore the film in 4K in collaboration with the Japanese co-producer, Kadokawa. In 1985, the production of the original film was possible thanks to a French-Japanese collaboration and 30 years later, STUDIOCANAL and Kadokawa replicated this partnership to restore the film.
Considered as one of the greatest films directed by Akira Kurosawa, the film has been selected for the 2015 Cannes Classics.
The film has been restored based on a 4K scan by the French laboratory Éclair, under STUDIOCANAL’s supervision. Based on an original negative, the majority of the restoration work was done manually image by image, with the film’s DP, Mr. Ueda, approving the color-grading.
The film will be released theatrically in Japan in Fall 2015, followed by releases in the US and France. The UK will release the film in theaters in 2016 to celebrate the 400 years after Shakespeare’s death.

STUDIOCANAL will release the film in theaters on June 26th in the UK and in the US, July 8th in France, and during the summer in Germany. New DVD and Blu-ray editions will also be released following the film’s theatrical run.
