The favorite crime drama will hit Blu-Ray for the first time on September 6th, but before that Brian De Palma's 1983 film Scarface featuring an iconic performance by veteran actor Al Pacino will return to theaters for a special screening on August 31st. NCM Fathom and Universal Studios Home Entertainment are partnering on the special event which will play in 475 theaters across the country presented in HD with enchanced audio. The screening will also include a look at a 20-minute special feature that includes interviews with various filmmakers and actors about how Scarface influenced cinema. More below!
Though I'd prefer to see a real film version of the flick on the big screen, this digital presentation is still a great way for viewers to experience the film on the big screen, especially those who may never have gotten a chance to see the film when it was in theaters nearly 30 years ago. To find the closest theater hosting the screening and get tickets for the event taking place at 7:30pm local time on August 31st, you can go to the Fathom Events page right here. Otherwise, if you're a real hardcore Scarface fan, you can pick up the limited edition Blu-Ray gift set that comes with an actual cigar humidor and more. Either way, there's some good stuff on the way for fans of the classic crime drama.

Huge difference between seeing it at home on DVD and seeing inside a huge, dark, movie theater. I welcome these kinds of re-releases!

Am I the only one who thinks this is one of the most over-rated movies of all time?

If only they'd replace that horrible soundtrack for the Blu-ray.
