‘Saving Private Ryan’ Is Returning To Cinemas This Summer

Park Circus

Park Circus has revealed that they will be bringing Steven Spielberg’s superb WWII movie Saving Private Ryan back to cinemas this summer.

The film will be presented in stunning 4K opening in UK cinemas and across selected international territories on 6 June 2019, marking 75 years to the day since World War Two’s ‘D-Day’ Normandy landings – and 21 years since the film was released.

Seen through the eyes of a squad of Us soldiers, the story begins with World Word II’s historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as the men embark on a dangerous special mission. Amidst the fighting, two brothers are killed in action. Earlier in New Guinea, a third brother is killed in action. Their mother, Mrs. Ryan, is to receive all three of the grave telegrams on the same day. When General George Marshall learns that the fourth brother, James, is with the 101st Airborne Division somewhere in Normandy,

Saving Private Ryan Blu-Ray Review

Saving Private Ryan (Blu-Ray)Paramount Home Entertainment1998/Rated R/ 169 minsNow Available – List Price: $39.99Every now and then its nice to go back to an influential film especially if its by a filmmaker who continually re-invents himself. Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan came as a surprise to moviegoers in the summer of 1998. Though promoted as a simple story of a unit of GI's sent to locate the last surviving member of a family of serviceman, the film was actually a full blown war movie set against the WWII invasion of Normandy. The film marked Spielberg's second with his DreamWorks Pictures after leaving Universal as well as the second major success for the studio after Deep Impact a few weeks earlier. Critics and audiences knew Spielberg could handle gut wrenching drama after the success of Schindler's List in 1993, but could he do it again? This war movie not only proved that he could,

[DVD Review] Saving Private Ryan

Trying to determine to best war film has become, in fairly mainstream circles, almost as popular and pointless an activity as trying to determine the best film itself; in almost every attempt that I’ve seen, Saving Private Ryan has been mentioned. Whether or not it is the best film ever made about war, or even World War II, will probably never be safely assured (to be completely frank, it almost certainly isn’t, as most of the really angry and pathos-ridden films on the subject came out of Eastern Europe). But Saving Private Ryan’s place in history has been secured not by its technical achievements or its advancements in public understanding of the war (both of which considerable), but in its ability to embody seemingly conflicting American ideals about warfare without ever contradicting itself or imploding under the weight of the national mythos that it effortlessly evokes.

Saving Private Ryan

Steven Spielberg directed this powerful, realistic re-creation of WWII's D-day invasion and the immediate aftermath. The story opens with a prologue in which a veteran brings his family to the American cemetery at Normandy, and a flashback then joins Capt. John Miller (Tom Hanks) and GIs in a landing craft making the June 6, 1944, approach to Omaha Beach to face devastating German artillery fire.

Veteran's Day Honored, Hollywood-Style

Today is Veteran's Day. It is a time when we step back for a moment to honor the bravery and sacrifices of our nation's soldiers. Men and women who give everything, up to and including their lives, all in the name of protecting this country and all that it represents. Also known as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, the holiday always falls on November 11, commemorating the anniversary of the 1918 armistice that brought an end to World War I.

The history of film is rife with stories pulled straight from the front lines. War stories make great cinema, both because they serve up gripping tales of heroism and because they honor those who take on such acts in the real world. So today, in honor of the veterans from wars past and wars ongoing, we give you this small selection of classics to spend some time with.
