David Lynch's Neo Noir Classic Mulholland Drive Gets 4K Restoration, Watch Trailer

With Twins Peaks return only a couple of months away Studiocanal next month they will bring back David Lynch's neo-noir classic Mulholland Drive, to UK Cinemas. To celebrate the new digital restoration of a 4k transfer of David Lynch’s quintessential neo-noir classic, Studiocanal has released a brand new trailer as it returns to cinemas on April 14th.

Recently voted the best film of the 21st Century in a BBC Culture poll, Mulholland Drive is essential viewing by one of the masters of contemporary American cinema. David Lynch’s scary and seductive vision of Hollywood is a true masterpiece, weaving together a tale of love, jealousy, and revenge like no other.

The new restoration of the 4k digital transfer, supervised by Lynch himself, will receive its UK premiere at Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, which takes place April 4-9th 2017. More information on the festival can be found here.

The film will be then released by the ICO in cinemas on April 14th, 2017, followed by a new special edition DVD, Blu-ray and EST release through Studiocanal on May 22nd, 2017, to coincide with the hotly anticipated return of David Lynch’s cult TV show Twin Peaks for a third season.

Beautiful, bizarre and strangely addictive, the film begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of brunette amnesiac Rita (Laura Harring – Love in the Time of Cholera) and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty (Naomi Watts – Birdman, 21 Grams). Taking the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood’s dark underbelly, Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of a hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
