HOT 4K NEWS





ARROW VIDEO will release director Sergio Corbucci’s (“The Great Silence”) spaghetti western “Django” on 4K Ultra HD - May 25.


Franco Nero stars in a career-defining performance as Django, a mysterious loner who arrives at a mud-drenched ghost town on the Mexico-US border.


After saving imperiled prostitute Maria (Loredana Nusciak), Django becomes embroiled in a brutal feud between a racist gang and a band of Mexican revolutionaries. A huge hit with international audiences, Django’s brand of bleak nihilism would be repeatedly emulated in a raft of unofficial sequels. The set also includes the bonus movie “Texas, Adios” on Blu-ray, which also stars Nero, and was released as a sequel to “Django” in some countries.
