Cruising (1980) coming to HD?


According to High-Def Digest Warner will eventually be releasing the misunderstood cult film Cruising (1980) on both HD formats. Directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino, Cruising is a film I have heard a lot about but have never had the chance to see it. It created a lot of controversy upon it’s initial theatrical release and was labelled as being homophobic in it’s depiction of gay culture. Cruising has since disappeared into obscurity having never been released on DVD and is hard to find on VHS. A restored uncut version was shown recently at the Cannes Film Festival projected from a new HD master. It is expected that this version will make its way to both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray in the near future.
