Trailer For The Wicker Man’s Restored Final Cut

Studio Canal have restored Robin Hardy‘s much-loved fable of the superstitious vs. reason and will be releasing The Wicker Man: The Final Cut into UK cinemas on September 27th. This trailer will give you some idea of how well the image has scrubbed up.

The title cards confuse me somewhat but I hope to see the film soon and ascertain what’s new, how new exactly it is, and what – if anything – has gone missing. Seems unlikely there’s any footage here that hasn’t been released in at least one of the previous edits, though.

Note that the film will also get a DVD and Blu-ray release on October 14th, quite soon after the cinema roll-out but the better to give us all something new for our Hallowe’en marathons.
