The  Man Who Fell To Earth

We’ve talked about ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth‘ before here on, so it’s only natural that we are a little bit excited that it will be re-released in theaters to celebrate its 40th Anniversary.

‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ starred the late David Bowie in his first feature film, and follows the tale of an alien sent to Earth to find a solution for his planet that is dying due to drought. Famous for its surreal imagery, and copious amounts of naked Bowie, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ becomes a tragedy as the alien pursues sex, drugs, and television. It was based off a book of the same name.

The movie will be in UK theaters September 9th, 2016:

The Blu-Ray, which promises to be beautiful after its 4K restoration, will be out November 18th, 2016.

And if that’s not enough for you die hard fans, the soundtrack– something David Bowie completists have been clamoring for a long time, and have tried to piece together their own compilations- will also finally be hitting stores. It featured songs written by the innovative Stomu Yamash’ta, and John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas. Why the soundtrack was never released is a story we don’t know, but according to, it will be elucidated in the “48-page hardback book that accompanies this upcoming deluxe double disc release.”
The CD will be out on September 9th, and the deluxe 2CD/2LP box set due November 18th.
