“We’re gonna go inside, we’re gonna go outside, inside and outside. We’re gonna get ’em on the run boys”…. If you are a fan of the classic underdog film Rudy and Notre Dame Football, you know the rest. Also if you are a fan of Rudy you are going to want to check this out. Today, Sony Pictures announced it will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of this film by releasing it on 4k UHD. Starring Sean Astin, Ned Beatty, Charles S. Dutton, Lili Taylor, and Robert Prosky, Rudy will be released in 4k UHD with the original theatrical version and an all-new director’s cut on November 14th, 2023.
RUDY IS HEADING OUR WAY IN 4K UHD
All his life, people have told Rudy he’s not good enough, not smart enough, not big enough. But nothing can stop his impossible dream of playing football for Notre Dame. From the time he’s a young boy, Rudy (Sean Astin) is determined to join the Fighting Irish. But his blue collar family only laughs at his ambitions – they know Rudy will follow his father and brothers to the local steel mill. And, for four long years after high school, he does just that.
But some dreams won’t die, as Rudy proves when he goes to heroic, occasionally hilarious, lengths to win admission to Notre Dame. Once there, he becomes a walk-on player, serving as little more than a human tackling dummy against the starting players. Bloodied but unbeaten, Rudy wins the respect of legendary coach Ara Parseghian and the other Irish players, who give him one shot at gridiron glory. An incredible true story from the creators of Hoosiers, RUDY is an unforgettable testament to the power of dreams and the triumph of the common man.
“I’m so pleased to share this new version of RUDY, now in its full and intended Director’s Cut presentation. It’s a different movie, but in a very good way! The 4K and Atmos upgrades also perfectly enhance the experience, making this the ideal gift for RUDY fans everywhere. Never give up!” – David Anspaugh, Director
