Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” gets a second life with Sony’s 30th Anniv. Steelbook – Oct. 4

HOT 4K NEWS - PREORDERS




SONY PICTURES Entertainment will release a limited edition Steelbook version of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” on October 4. The new edition will include a new grading with Dolby Vision and the original theatrical subtitle font for text scenes. This has been a common complaint with many 4K releases, with oversized subtitles domaining the screen. Most 4K setups are larger than the HDTV and don’t need the larger type size and bold type font. We applaud Sony for this correction.


Academy Award-winning director Francis Ford Coppola (“The Godfather Part II”) presents a classic and chilling tale about the devastatingly seductive Transylvanian prince (Gary Oldman) who travels from Eastern Europe to 19th-century London in search of human love. When the charismatic Dracula meets Mina (Winona Ryder), a young woman who appears as the reincarnation of his lost love, the two embark on a journey of romantic passion and horror.
