‘Do The Right Thing’ getting special 4K BluRay release

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.
