Stars Al Pacino, Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia, F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman will celebrate the upcoming worldwide Blu-ray release of SCARFACE at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on August 23, 2011.
Talk about standing the test of time. The 1983 gangster film directed by Brian DePalma and written by Oliver Stone clearly has a huge following that only continues to grow since its theatrical release 28 years ago. It’s just one of those movies that you can watch over and over again and never seem to get tired of.
I remember seeing the film twice on the big screen at the Kings Plaza theater in Brooklyn, NY. I remember it playing right next door to Clint Eastwood’s “Sudden Impact”. While not a big hit at the time, Scarface has managed to became a major player in pop culture that relates to movies.
Besides the Blu-Ray release which comes out Sept 6th, Universal will show Scarface Aug 29th for one night only, nationwide, in theaters. This is a pretty cool video. Take a LOOK
