Scorsese’s ‘Bringing Out The Dead’ Celebrates 25th Anniversary With 4K Ultra HD And Blu-ray Release On 9/17

Director Martin Scorsese’s gripping and fiery masterpiece BRINGING OUT THE DEAD celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and Paramount Home Entertainment is marking the occasion by releasing the newly remastered film for the first time ever on both 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray on September 17, 2024.

Nicolas Cage is Frank Pierce, a paramedic on the brink of madness. Patricia Arquette is the daughter of a man Frank tried to save. Together, they’ll need to confront the ghosts of the past to discover redemption among the living. The powerhouse supporting cast includes John Goodman, Ving Rhames, and Tom Sizemore.

Hailed as “an ecstatic sensory experience” (San Francisco Examiner), “intense, volatile” (New York Times), and “savage and sorrowing” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), BRINGING OUT THE DEAD debuted on October 22, 1999 and marked the fourth collaboration between Scorsese and screenwriter Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull).  Cage gives a riveting performance as a Manhattan paramedic barely clinging to sanity over the course of three chaotic nights.

Newly remastered from the original camera negative, this exceptional new release was reviewed by Scorsese, cinematographer Robert Richardson, and editor Thelma Schoonmaker.  Arriving as part of the Paramount Presents line, BRINGING OUT THE DEAD is presented in a must-own two-disc set that includes the film on 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Atmos and on Blu-ray, along with a wealth of new bonus content, including new interviews with Scorsese, Cage, Schrader, and Richardson, plus archival on-set interviews with Patricia Arquette, John Goodman, Ving Rhames, Tom Sizemore, and Marc Anthony.  The release also includes access to a Digital copy of the film.  New and legacy bonus content included on the Blu-ray Disc is detailed below.
