Here’s the official Paramount Home Entertainment press release that breaks down what to expect from each title.

A Place in the Sun

Director George Stevens’ masterwork won six Academy Awards and is widely considered one of the finest works of America cinema.

Remastered from a 4K film transfer in celebration of its 70th anniversary, the film is presented on Blu-ray with a brand-new Filmmaker Focus featuring film historian Leonard Maltin talking about George Stevens and the innovative film techniques he used for this unforgettable story of ambition, passion, and betrayal.

The disc also includes previously released bonus content, including commentary by George Stevens, Jr. and Ivan Moffat, retrospective cast and crew interviews, and a segment on George Stevens featuring filmmakers who knew him.

Nashville

Director Robert Altman’s seminal film Nashville remains an essential classic of 70s cinema with its complexly textured portrayal and critique of America’s obsession with celebrity and power.

Newly remastered from a 4K scan of original elements, the film is presented on Blu-ray with a new featurette entitled “24 Tracks: Robert Altman’s Nashville.”  The disc also includes a previously released commentary by Altman.

Fittingly, Nashville is Volume 24 of the Paramount Presents line as the film follows 24 distinct characters with intersecting storylines over five days in the titular city.  The phenomenal ensemble cast includes Ned Beatty, Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Karen Black, Geraldine Chaplin, Henry Gibson, Michael Murphy, Lily Tomlin, Shelley Duvall, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, and Barbara Harris.

Bugsy Malone

Acclaimed director Alan Parker redefined the movie musical with his first feature-length film, Bugsy Malone, which celebrates its 45th anniversary this year.

Available for the first time in the U.S. on Blu-ray, the film has been remastered from the original elements for this limited-edition release. The Blu-ray includes a new Filmmaker Focus delving into this early work from the director of Fame, The Commitments, Pink Floyd: The Wall, Mississippi Burning, and Evita.
