HOT 4K NEWS
WARNER BROS. Home Entertainment will release the critically acclaimed “The Green Mile” based on Stephen King’s novel on 4K Ultra HD February 22.
The film was written and directed by Frank Darabont, who is one of only six filmmakers in history with the unique distinction of having his first two feature films receive nominations for the Best Picture Academy Award: “The Shawshank Redemption” (1994) and “The Green Mile” (1999).
Nominated for four Academy Awards, this emotional film about miracles and the power of redemption stars Tom Hanks as prison guard Paul Edgecomb. When John Coffey (Oscar nominee Michael Clarke Duncan), a giant of a man, is brought to death row, Edgecomb and his fellow guards discover something very unusual about him. Convicted for the sadistic murder of two young girls, but behaving almost like a child himself, Coffey seems to have a supernatural gift of healing living things. Expectations are turned upside down and the guards’ sense of humanity is awakened in this adaptation of Stephen Kings compelling novel.
