To mark the 40th anniversary of its original theatrical release, STUDIOCANAL is proud to announce the release of the first ever 4K and Ultra HD version of THE ELEPHANT MAN. To celebrate the release we are giving YOU a chance to win a copy on 4K Ultra HD™!

Directed by the celebrated David Lynch, this critically acclaimed masterpiece is available, complete with brand-new extras, on digital, DVD, BD and a 4k UHD Collector’s Edition with a 64 page booklet and artcards on April 6. A Special Steelbook edition is also available to own.

An intensely moving true story of humanity and bravery, THE ELEPHANT MAN won 3 BAFTA awards including Best Film and Best Actor, and received 8 Oscar® nominations on release in 1980. Boasting an exceptional lead performance from John Hurt (Alien, 1984, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) in the iconic role of John Merrick, the stellar cast features Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of The Lambs, The Two Popes), John Gielgud (Gandhi, Julius Caesar), Anne Bancroft (The Graduate, The Miracle Worker), Hannah Gordon (Watership Down), Freddie Jones (Dune), Wendy Hillier (A Man for All Seasons) and Michael Elphick (Gorky Park).

The new 4K restoration of THE ELEPHANT MAN was carried out at L’Immagine Ritrovata (Bologna and Paris) under the supervision of David Lynch, who also personally curated the color correction which took place at Fotokem (Los Angeles). The restoration was created from the Original Camera Negative with the latest HDR 16bit workflow used in order to obtain the best possible result. As a result, the black and white image has been restored to its original look.

John Merrick (John Hurt) is The Elephant Man, forced into becoming a circus sideshow freak and spurned by society due to the disfiguring disabilities he was born with. Rescued by a well-meaning surgeon (Anthony Hopkins), he escapes a life of prejudice and cruelty as he tries to fit into a world ruled by Victorian sensibilities. With news of Merrick quickly spreading, he becomes a celebrated curiosity amongst London's upper class, including with the famed actress Mrs. Kendal (Anne Bancroft). Despite being treated somewhat more humanely, the question becomes whether Treves' actions are in fact a just a further form of exploitation of Merrick.

Beautifully shot in black and white by the incomparable Freddie Francis (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Cape Fear) and with BAFTA-winning production design by Stuart Craig (The English Patient, The Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), THE ELEPHANT MAN is an unforgettable story of human dignity and courage in the face of unimaginable adversity, that proved to be David Lynch’s first commercial and critical success.
