'Newly Restored' Print of 'The Breakfast Club' Will Premiere at SXSW
A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. Even though it's about to be available on Blu-ray next week, a newly remastered version of The Breakfast Club is set to screen as a world premiere at 2015 SXSW Film Festival later this month. The film is celebrating it's 30th anniversary, which is also why the Blu-ray is getting re-released for the 30th, and the festival premiere will be part of that promo. Cast members Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy will also be in attendance for a special Q&A. If you're a big fan of this film and live in Austin (or are attending SXSW) this is the ideal event for you.

The Breakfast Club, written and directed by John Hughes, was first released on February 15th, 1985 starring Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason, Anthony Michael Hall, John Kapelos, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. The film will be screened 430 theaters on two days (from March 26th to 31st) later this month in celebration of the 30th anniversary. SXSW will be hosting the premiere of this remastered version which will be going out to cinemas. You can also pick it up on Blu-ray next week if you're interested. It's a classic, but I think I like Ferris Bueller's Day Off a bit more.
