Universal Pictures are bringing a new release of seminal Spike Lee film ‘Do The Right Thing‘ on Digital, BluRay and for the first time in 4K Ultra HD. Do the Right Thing has become a critically acclaimed, seminal Black film that has deeply impacted the cultural discourse over the last three decades. Taking place over the course of a single, sweltering day in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood in Brooklyn, Do the Right Thing follows Mookie (Lee), a young pizza delivery man who butts heads with Sal (Danny Aiello), the owner of the pizza shop where he works. As the temperature rises over the day, so do the tempers of Sal, Mookie, and other members of the neighbourhood as issues around race and class become topics of discussion. Lee’s flawless script and Aiello’s searing performance earned Do the Right Thing two Oscar nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor, respectively, at the 1990 Academy Awards.
Among the highlights for the 4K and Blu-ray release of Do the Right Thing is an all-new introduction from Lee as well as a retrospective documentary with the cast and crew of the movie.
