When it was released back in 2001, Ridley Scott’s Hannibal was a MASSIVE hit, earning recognition for having (at the time) the biggest-opening box office for a rated “R” film in history. The sequel to The Silence of the Lambs (minus Jodie Foster, sadly) gobbled up over $350 million worldwide, paving way for the exceptional NBC series with the same title.
Today, Kino Lorber Studio Classics has announced that they’re bringing Hannibal to both Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD, with a brand new 4K restoration and hours of extras.
