Michael Mann’s ‘Heat’ to Screen Nationwide Ahead of New Home Release

Michael Mann's 'Heat' to Screen Nationwide
New Regency

Michael Mann’s 1995 Los Angeles crime saga “Heat” will hit theaters around the country for one night only next month.

The May 2 screenings, co-presented by Alamo Drafthouse, serve as a nationwide launch for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s May 9 release of a “Director’s Definitive Edition” Blu-ray and DVD. Additionally, a Q&A with Mann will be live-streamed at each of the screenings from the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles.

The new restoration was overseen by Mann. It screened at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015 as part of a 20th anniversary celebration, as well as at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last year. Q&As from both of those events are featured on the new release.

Details on next month’s screenings can be found below.

    Saw it last night at the Village. Amazing. The color, the shots, the acting, the story, the depth of character, the pacing. It’s the greatest cop/robber film ever. Period. Other notable tent-pole filmmakers needs to learn and go to the school of Michael Mann to learn filmmaking, and stop with all the explosions and cgi, and give us an emotional story. This was probably the first movie that treated every major character with it’s own story arc and gave a full three-dimensional characterization of them.

    Already booked a ticket. It’s a 4K restoration, with sound and image quality that must be superior (just remember Criterion’s release of Mann’s Thief a couple of years ago). What a great occasion to see Heat on the big screen… Again!

    Regency was the production company and Warner Bros. distributed it back in ’95. Now that Arnold Milchan is based at 20th Century Fox it makes total sense the studio is behind it. Same deal with Point Break ’91, which has a new home at Warner (hence the terrible remake).

  3. Dan Vallo says:

    Heat was my all time favorite! A thriller with best actors in it. Wish a sequel would be made.

  4. Jason says:

    I was excited–then I realized I’d have to drive to freaking BOSTON to watch it. Meh…

  5. Aside from the Q&A’s. what will the new edition offer that is not on the 2 disc version I already have? What is meant by “restored” — old out-takes put back in? Does the picture quality of a 1995 film need to be “restored”? As Vincent Hanna would say “Gimme all ya got!!”.

  6. Frank says:

    Also, it’s a Warner Brothers picture. That’s the only thing I see wrong except for your incessant grammar issues. I’d apply there, but I’m not qualified to write for you. I’m over the age of 5.

    • WB lost the rights to HEAT, along with all the other Arnon Milchan-produced movies they initially released, a couple years ago, and since Regency is now based at Fox, Fox now has distribution rights. Yeah, it took me by surprise too.

    Love that movie! Sooooo, nowhere relevant, then? Why write this article??
