From Russia With Love - Back On The Big Screen
27th February 2009 / 18th April 2009

Press Release - From 24th April 2009, a digitally restored version of "From Russia With Love" is returning to cinemas across the UK, in celebration of the centenary of producer Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli. Broccoli formed EON Productions and Danjaq, with Harry Saltzman, to make "Dr No", launching James Bond onto the big screen in 1962. When Saltzman later sold his shares of the two companies to United Artists, Broccoli became sole producer of the Bond films.

"From Russia With Love", originally released in 1963, has been digitally restored frame by frame by Lowry Digital Images, the world’s leader in digital restoration and image enhancement. The process involves taking moving pictures that show signs of age and wear, removing the fading, dirt, scratches and other defects that occur over time, and returning them to their original condition.

"From Russia With Love", directed by Terence Young, and starring Sean Connery, Daniela Bianchi, Robert Shaw and Lotte Lenya, will be opening from 24th April 2009 at BFI Southbank (as part of a comprehensive Broccoli season), followed by special screenings at cinemas nationwide.

The film is is being re-issued through Park Circus, the UK’s leading distributor of classic and back catalogue films for theatrical exhibition. The company previously re-released the digitally remastered "Goldfinger" in 2007 to sell-out performances.
