David Bowie became well-known for being a multifaceted performer who was years ahead of his time. The singer, a well-known figure in the music industry, was also not averse to experimenting with other musical genres, solidifying his reputation as a creative individual. Although he is most known for his work in rock music, Bowie also dabbled in acting on the big screen. One of his most notable performances was in the 1976 Nicolas Roeg-directed cult classic The Man Who Fell to Earth, which helped propel the late artist’s career even further. And now, the “guy” will be released in an exclusive steel book on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital platforms for us to enjoy in the comfort of our homes.
The 4K restoration of The Man Who Fell to Earth is now available for the suggested retail price of $27.99. The Blu-ray edition also includes bonus materials, such as featurettes, the movie’s trailer, and an interview with Bowie and Roeg as well as the film’s producer, writer, director, costume designer, and cinematographer. The ’70s classic, which is based on Walter Tevis’ 1963 science fiction novel of the same name, is Bowie’s first leading role in a motion picture. He plays the humanoid alien Thomas Jerome Newton, who travels to Earth in search of water to bring back to his distant home planet, which is experiencing a severe drought.
The alien’s objective, however, is thwarted when he becomes mixed up in dishonest human behavior and must contend with the isolation that comes from being an outsider. Bowie gave an outstanding performance, cementing his place in movie history, in a movie that uses stunning and cutting-edge visuals to comment on the current world. Despite the film’s mixed reception upon release, it nonetheless gained a positive review and an 82% rating on Rotten Tomatoes; as a result of this, it has grown to become a cult favorite. The movie was nominated for a number of awards, and Bowie won the Saturn Award for Best Actor.
The movie is regarded as one of Roeg’s greatest productions overall. A television adaptation of The Man Who Fell to Earth was released in 2022. Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) portrayed the humanoid alien in this adaptation. The ten episodes are each given the name of a well-known Bowie song, such as “Under Pressure” and “Hello Spaceboy.”
The English singer-songwriter released a number of timeless classics after his breakthrough single “Liza Jane” in 1964, including “Space Oddity,” “Sound and Vision,” and “Life on Mars?” Moonage Daydream, a 2022 documentary by Brett Morgen that examines the late singer’s aesthetic and musical career, also features Bowie. Moreover, The Man Who Fell to Earth has been restored and will be sold starting on April 25. This adds to Bowie’s already illustrious career.
