Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment Celebrates The 30th Anniversary Of Director Andrew Davis' The Fugitive On Nov. 21 With A New 4K Ultra HD Release
Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of director Andrew Davis’ The Fugitive, starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, on Nov. 21 with the release of a newly-minted 4K Ultra HD edition.
It’s always fascinating how films get made. In the case of this film adaptation of the popular 1960s television series starring David Jansen, producer Arnold Kopelson — who won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1987 for Platoon — started working a film version right after Platoon, but couldn’t quite put it together.
He ended up producing five films during that period (Fire Birds, Falling Down, etc.) while The Fugitive “cooked” — both Stephen Frears (My Beautiful Laundrette, Dangerous Liaisons) and Walter Hill were attached to direct at different points, and Alec Baldwin had been lined up to play Dr. Kimble.Finally, everything fell into place with Davis directing (fresh from Under Siege) and Harrison Ford in the lead … The Fugitive was not only a smash hit, but it was nominated for Best Picture, along with five technical Oscars and a Best Supporting Actor win for Tommy Lee Jones. Kopelson may have taken five years, but he got it right!!
Bonus features include an introduction to the film by Harrison Ford and Andrew Davis, commentary by Davis and Tommy Lee Jones and a trio of featurettes — “The Fugitive: Thrill of the Chase,” “On the Run with the Fugitive” and “Derail: Anatomy of a Train Wreck” (yes, the train wreck was a real, not CGI).
