    Pretty in Pink & The Golden Child are getting released on Blu-ray for the 1st time.

    There will be these other following titles being released/newly remastered under the Paramount Presents label along with these two great films.

    To Catch A Thief
    King Creole
    Flashdance
    Ghost
    Airplane!
    Fatal Attraction
    Paramount Pictures announced today that it will introduce a new “Paramount Presents” label to recognize and celebrate films from the studio’s vast and storied library.* The “Paramount Presents” banner will be used for a new line of collectible Blu-ray Discs™ incorporating a curated selection of enduringly popular movies, as well as films that had a cultural impact upon their release.* The* label will also be used to bring classic films to select theaters for limited theatrical runs so audiences can experience them again on the big screen.

    “Paramount’s library represents over a century of filmmaking and includes some of the greatest films in cinematic history,” said Bob Buchi, president, worldwide home media distribution, Paramount Pictures.* “We look forward to opening the vault and sharing some of our most treasured films with fans under the new ‘Paramount Presents’ banner, both in theaters and in our new Blu-ray collection, which has been crafted to offer something special to casual fans, dedicated film enthusiasts, and collectors.” Designed for fans and film lovers, the new line of “Paramount Presents” Blu-ray Discs will include a diverse and eclectic array of films spanning all genres.* The new collection will return each title to the spotlight with meticulously remastered releases that include brand new bonus content focused on the filmmakers. Presented in collectible packaging that includes a foldout image of the original movie poster and interior artwork featuring key movie moments, each Blu-ray in the Paramount Presents line features new interviews with filmmakers and/or celebrated film historian Leonard Maltin.

    “Movies have the power to hold a mirror up to the world.* Sometimes they make us think about big issues and sometimes they simply reflect the times in which they were made,” said Maltin.* “The ‘Paramount Presents’ banner encompasses a wide array of films that are worth revisiting because they captured something unique that resonated with audiences.* Whether you’re watching them for the first time or the hundredth, you will see why these films have stood the test of time.” The first three films in the “Paramount Presents” Blu-ray line will be the unforgettable phenomenon Fatal Attraction, which has been remastered under the supervision of director Adrian Lyne; 1958’s acclaimed Elvis Presley drama King Creole; and director Alfred Hitchcock’s intoxicating romantic thriller To Catch A Thief, which celebrates its 65th anniversary this year.* All three titles will be available beginning* April 21, 2020.* Fatal Attraction will also have a limited theatrical release in 2020 (details to be announced at a later date). Additional titles scheduled to be released as part of the “Paramount Presents” Blu-ray line include newly remastered editions of Flashdance, Airplane!, and Ghost, as well as several titles arriving on Blu-ray for the first time ever, including Pretty In Pink and The Golden Child.

    I have never seen Pretty in Pink in full on TV before. I have seen snippets of it on an episode of Mark Kermode's Secrets of Cinema on BBC Four last year which was about coming of age films. I thought back then after seeing that episode that PIP needed to be on my Blu-ray wishlist very soon. I have seen The Golden Child on TV before. But I have not seen it since several years ago. I don't remember very much from it. But; to have it on Blu-ray is a nice & long awaited surprise.

    I hope these releases from Paramount will be the business with tons of extras for us film fans to enjoy.

    The Golden Child is actually pretty underrated. Not a great movie but Eddie Murphy was the funniest man in the world at the time, so still worth watching.

    Personally think The Golden Child is a terrible movie.

    Strange one to be leading with. They could have done a John Hughes box set and it would have outsold that.

    Also, who buys physical media anymore?

    I had fond memories of The Golden Child myself. But I re-watched it about 3 weeks ago for the first time in about 25+ years and it has not aged well l imo!

    Lasted five minutes on The Golden Child on recent viewing, it’s awful.
