The big release news today is that Sony Picture Home Entertainment has just set Peter H. Hunt’s classic musical 1776 for release on Blu-ray on 6/2. The film will be the 166-minute Directors’ Cut, recently restored in 4K by Grover Crisp and his team at Sony Pictures Colorworks from the original camera negative and with Hunt’s guidance. According to Hunt: “I’m ecstatic. 1776 is back to where it should be. The work done by Grover and his team is miraculous. It looks better than when it premiered. It’s gorgeous!” In addition to the film, you’ll get all-new audio commentary with Hunt, William Daniels and Ken Howard, a second commentary with Hunt and Peter Stone, deleted and alternate scenes with commentary, 4 never-before-seen screen tests, archival screen tests, and the film’s original teaser and theatrical trailers.  [Read on here…]
