STUDIOCANAL ANNOUNCE A BRAND NEW 4K RESTORATION OF

FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA’S

THE OUTSIDERS THE COMPLETE NOVEL IN ASSOCIATION WITH ZOETROPE

“The Outsiders The Complete Novel came about after meeting students over the years who repeatedly asked me why certain scenes from S.E. Hinton’s wonderful book were missing from the theatrical version.

These questions reminded about my inspiration for the film—in 1980, a contingent of 12- to 14-year-old students wrote and asked me to make it. I listened to those young fans back then, and I continue to listen to young people now and believe in their opinions, so this complete film version of the novel is for them.”, Coppola said when discussing the restoration

Based on the 1967 best-selling young-adult novel by S. E. Hinton, THE OUTSIDERS is considered the first “brat pack” movie, as it stars then-unknown young actors in many of their first break-through roles, including C. Thomas Howell (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Rob Lowe (‘The West Wing’, ‘Parks and Recreation’), Emilio Estevez (St. Elmo’s Fire, The Breakfast Club, Young Guns), Matt Dillon (Crash, There’s Something About Mary), Tom Cruise (Top Gun, Mission Impossible series, Jerry Maguire), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Point Break, Ghost), Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid, Cobra Kai), and Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Under the Tuscan Sun), who went on to superstar-calibre careers.

THE OUTSIDERS takes place in ’60s Oklahoma, centring on two rival teen gangs: The ‘Greasers’

Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell), a tender-hearted and kind teenager’s life is changed forever one night when a scuffle with his friend Johnny (Ralph Macchio) inadvertently leads to the death of a rival gang member, and the boys are forced to go into hiding to avoid arrest. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with Dallas (Matt Dillon) and their other Greaser buddies, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.

Inspired by Jo Ellen Misakian, a librarian, who had sent Coppola a letter ‘For “The Outsiders: The Complete Novel” as well as the original theatrical version, we wanted to create and maintain the highest level of visual quality possible for these restorations,’ commented James Mockoski, Film Archivist and Restoration Supervisor at American Zoetrope. ‘We took the unusual path of locating all the various elements that went into creating the film’s most elaborate visual effects sequences and re-scanned them. Luckily, Mr. Coppola is an archivist at heart and he kept every piece of film he shot, so we were able to unify scenes from the film using the original camera negative as much as possible. It was important to Mr. Coppola to give this release its best quality presentation, and no one has ever seen this film looking as beautiful and pristine as it does now.’

The stunning 5-disc 4K UHD Collector’s Edition will include both restored features – The Outsiders The Complete Novel and The Outsiders, plus a whole host of additional elements including:

THE OUTSIDERS THE COMPLETE NOVEL will be released in cinemas on October 15th and available as a 4K UHD Collector’s Edition as well as on Blu-Ray, DVD and on digital platforms from November 8th. The film is available for pre-order here
