Get Carter 4K BFI UHD & Blu-ray Out August – A 70s Masterpiece!

The outstanding Michael Caine British gangster film Get Carter (1971) has received a brand new 4K restoration by the BFI.

Get Carter 4K BFI 2 Disc Limited Edition will be available on both 4K UHD and Blu-ray this August in the UK.

It was originally due out at the end of July but has slipped into August’s blu-ray release line-up.

I’ll be honest Get Carter (1971) is possibly my favourite film of all time so I’m super excited to see the new restoration by the BFI. Just don’t mention the awful Stallone remake!!!

I’ve added the BFI restoration trailer at the bottom of the page. Maybe this is the film for those still on DVD to make the leap to either 4K Ultra HD or Blu-ray.
