Gorgeous 4K Trailer for the Upcoming Re-Release of Orson Welles' 'The Third Man'
Orson Welles’ iconic pulp-noir film ‘The Third Man’ received a full 4k restoration in 2015 and is heading back to theaters next month in celebration of its 70th anniversary. Meanwhile, ahead of the re-release, Studio Canal UK has dropped a newly cut trailer for the film and it … is … stunning!
Directed by Carol Reed (The Fallen Idol, Oliver!) from an original script by Graham Greene, ‘The Third Man’ won both the Grand Prix at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best British Film upon its release. Featuring Robert Krasker’s Oscar-winning cinematography showcasing the shadowy underbelly of a bombed-out Vienna, an endlessly quotable performance by Orson Welles and an iconic soundtrack from zither player Anton Karas, a Viennese busker plucked from obscurity by Reed, ‘The Third Man’ remains one of the most memorable thrillers of all time.
Check out the gorgeous new trailer below and be sure to keep an eye on your local theaters late September/early October for a screening.
