‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ Arrives April 25 on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and Digital in an Exclusive Steelbook Only at Best Buy

The perennial, cult-status epic starring David Bowie, The Man Who Fell to Earth, arrives on 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital in an Exclusive Steelbook only at Best Buy on April 25 from Lionsgate. Based on the 1963 novel by Paul Mayersberg and directed by sci-fi legend Nicolas Roeg, this impressionistic film offers contemporary audiences a timeless, poignant mirror in its exploration of the impact of capitalism and industrialization on the future of humanity and the planet.

Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet on a mission to take water back to his home planet in the midst of a catastrophic drought. Featuring a startling and era-defining lead performance from Bowie in his debut feature role, Nicolas Roeg’s iconic science-fiction odyssey ― stunningly restored and now available for the first time on 4K ― endures, not only as a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world, but also as a poignant commentary on the loneliness of the outsider.

Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth to get water for his dying planet. He starts a high technology company to get the billions of dollars he needs to build a return spacecraft.

Newly restored for the first time in 4K Ultra HD, this ’70s classic will be available for the suggested retail price of $27.99.
