    Dario Argento and Nicolas Winding Refn will present the world premiere of the restored version of Dawn of the Dead at the Venice Film Festival, which runs from August 31st through September 10th. The European cut of the 1978 zombie classic will be presented in high definition 4K at midnight on Sept 2nd.

    The 115-minute version was edited and curated by Dario Argento for the European market with music by Goblin. The film was restored by Koch Media in collaboration with Norton Trust and Antonello Cuomo.

    I am particularly pleased that Zombi is being re-released after so many years,” said Argento, who produced Dawn of the Dead, released under the title Zombi in Italy. “I have great memories of Zombi because it was so important for my career and for George’s as well.”

    That 4K case looks so thin. How are they going to fit 6 discs in there?

    It's only a mock up photo
    It will come in a slipcase and include a booklet
    I'm sure there will be more photos soon provided showing the actual packaging and details of extras etc

    Got my order in for this as well as the 4 disc edition. Not interested in the 4K disc but if this includes 5 BDs then I don't want to miss out.....although I expect the one with 4 discs is a typo and will soon be changed to 5 BDs

    Should be interesting to see. DOTD was shot on 35mm which has an aspect ratio of 1.37:1 so this should display the open matte frame that's been scanned in at 4K.
