The Third Man, directed by Carol Reed, written by Graham Greene and starring Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Trevor Howard and (of course) Orson Welles will be released as the first ever 4k restoration. After opening in cinemas The Third man will also be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in a new collector's edition on 20th July that will include more extras material than any previous version. Furthermore, the film's UK premiere will take place at The Edinburgh Film Festival on 21st June. And still, there's more! From July 1st to 31st of August the film will be one of the highlights of the BFI Southbank's Orson Welles season.
