Directed by Alex Proyas, who also directed another favorite film of ours, “Dark City,” 1994’s supernatural superhero film, “The Crow,” is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year.  To commemorate this anniversary, Paramount is releasing a 4K UHD of the movie.  We saw this one when it hit the big screen back in 1994 and instantly fell in love with it.  It was dark, it was gritty, had a sensational soundtrack and left a lasting impression on us.

Starring Rochelle Davis, Ernie Hudson, Brandon Lee, Bai Ling, Michael Massee, Sofia Shinas, and Michael Wincott, “The Crow” tells the tale of young musician Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) who is brutally murdered alongside his fiancée by members of a violent gang. On the anniversary of their death, Eric rises from the grave and assumes the gothic mantle of the Crow, a supernatural avenger. He then sets out on a macabre mission to mercilessly hunt down everyone responsible and make them answer for their crimes.

Here is info from the official press release:

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the thrilling, cult classic THE CROW when it arrives for the first time on 4K Ultra HD™May 7, 2024 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Originally released on May 13, 1994, THE CROW entranced audiences and critics alike with its gothic aesthetic, breathtaking action, and Brandon Lee’s soulful performance at the center of director Alex Proyas’ revenge fantasy. A sleeper box office hit, the film developed a passionate cult following that spawned three sequels, a television series, a video game, toys, and novels. Based on the comic book saga of the same name by James O’Barr, THE CROW delivers an action-packed thriller bursting with hypnotic style and dazzling visuals.

Newly remastered, THE CROW will be available nationally on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ with new and legacy bonus content and access to a Digital copy of the film. In addition, there will be a limited-edition SteelBook™ with a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc and access to a Digital copy of the film, featuring an o-sleeve with a cutout of a crow that lifts to reveal a portrait of Brandon Lee with his guitar.


Both releases include a brand-new three-part documentary created for the 30th anniversary entitled “Shadows & Pain: Designing The Crow.” The new piece is a fascinating deep dive with legendary production designer Alex McDowell, who discusses all aspects of designing the 1994 classic, as well as his experience working with visionary director Alex Proyas and the film’s late star, Brandon Lee.
