25th Anniversary Edition von GoodFellas erscheint im Mai 2015

Martin Scorseses „GoodFellas – Drei Jahrzehnte in der Mafia / GoodFellas“ [USA 1990] kam vor 25 Jahren in die Kinos. Aus diesem Grund veröffentlicht Warner Bros. am 5. Mai 2015 in den USA eine „25th Anniversary Edition“.

Warner hat bereits häufiger Jubiläums-Editionen zuvor erhältlicher Filme mit neuem Bonusmaterial, jedoch mit identischer Bildqualität veröffentlicht. Bei „GoodFellas“ wird es sich anders verhalten, denn ein neues Master wurde in 4K vom Kameranegativ erstellt. Dies war auch notwendig, denn die Bildqualität der bisherigen Blu-ray ist als eher mäßig zu bezeichnen, wie der Bildvergleich mit der DVD auf caps-a-holic zeigt.

Das bisherige Bonusmeterial wird auf der neuen Scheibe enthalten sein, hinzu kommt eine neue Dokumentation.
