In 1989, two-time Academy Award® nominee and visionary filmmaker Spike Lee (Inside Man) mesmerized audiences with one of the most insightful and provocative films of its time: Do the Right Thing.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment celebrates the 20th Anniversary of this provocative drama with an all-new special edition coming to Blu-rayTM Hi-Def and DVD on June 30, 2009 – exactly 20 years from its theatrical debut. Digitally remastered for optimum picture quality and featuring all-new 5.1 Surround Sound, Do the Right Thing – 20th Anniversary Edition is loaded with over 4 hours of revealing bonus material, including a never-before-seen retrospective documentary with cast and crew, a new feature commentary from Lee, and newly discovered deleted and extended scenes.
Do the Right Thing’s honesty, courage and original perspective on American race relations earned two Academy Award nominations, including Best Original Screenplay. A powerhouse ensemble cast creates a gallery of unforgettable characters, with standout performances by Danny Aiello (Moonstruck), Ossie Davis (Get On The Bus), Ruby Dee (American Gangster), Rosie Perez (Fearless), John Turturro (Barton Fink) and Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction).
