Director David Lean’s masterful 1962 epic Lawrence of Arabia is returning to theaters by way of a 4K restoration of the director’s cut, and a dazzling trailer has been put together to celebrate the event.  For those unaware, the Best Picture-winner stars Peter O’Toole as T.E. Lawrence and follows his experiences in Arabia during World War I.  The film will now be shown again the way it was meant to be seen—on a giant movie theater screen—to celebrate the 50th anniversary.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Lawrence of Arabia returns to theaters on October 4th, followed by a collectible box set Blu-ray release on November 13th and a one-time airing on TCM on November 16th.

Trailer via Empire.

    Yes, an epic film. Lawrence of Arabia, the English fool who is directly responsible for the terrorism we have today. On the other hand with the rise of the new Ottoman Empire in the Muslim world, the coming of the Mahdi and the Messiah, this world is right on schedule for another world war. Thank you T.E. Lawrence.

      Don’t you think that your assertion is a little excessive ? I’m currently reading the “Seven Pillars of Wisdom” by Lawrence, and he was absolutely not the only responsible man during the events of the Arab revolt. The movie show him like the hero who “saved” the Arab people : it’s a great and epic movie, indeed (one of my fav, to be honest), but frankly the movie is biased… and saying that Lawrence is responsible for the modern terrorism… is caricatural.

        Wow – I think you need to watch the film again! The film depicts Lawrence as a very deeply flawed man who was in WAY over his head and began to believe the hype too much – it does not make him out to be a hero at all. It shows him returning to England believing that he was a failure and his funeral sequence is filled with people giving completely contradictory statements about him. Lean’s film is a great example of a very rich character study told in an epic manner – Lawrence is complicated, confusing and even frustrating to the audience, but a hero? I don’t think so.

    Restored in 4k? If the movie was shot in 70mm film(i could be wrong) isn’t that sort of a downgrade from going to 4K?

      You’re right, that’s why it was scanned at 8K with a 4K master for distribution. Anything higher than that doesnt make much sense.

      The original source shot on 65mm film is so high that it has to be downgraded to comply with Blu-ray standard and HD TV broadcasts cannot handle the quality either.
      It took 6 months to convert to digital hopefully as media becomes more advanced we will be able to enjoy the true quality of this epic.
      A lesson to all who thought digital was superior to analogue, this 50 year old film makes todays efforts look like they were shot by amateurs.

      Sorry, don’t know why this was posted in two places…

    Not the computer generated trash constantly being churned out by Hollywood but a British classic shot on 65mm film.
    Steven Spielberg rates this as his favourite film and I think that man knows a lot more about making films than many.
