Get An Eyeful Of The Trailer & Poster For A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS' 4K Restoration

The classic western returns to UK/ROI cinemas in April.


With his very European take on the genre, Sergio Leone changed the western forever with his 1964 feature A Fistful of Dollars, a reworking of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo. While ushering in the era of the spaghetti western, Leone's film also made a big screen star out of Clint Eastwood, taking over from John Wayne as the most iconic figure in the genre.

Park Circus will release A Fistful of Dollars in a new 4K restoration in UK/ROI cinemas April 13th.

The official re-release synopsis reads:

San Miguel is a one horse town that's being pulled apart by two rival families. John Baxter, the crooked town sheriff with a sideline in weapons smuggling, seeks to establish his own version of law and order with support from his son, Antonio and their gang of thugs. But the Rojo Cartel - headed up by a trio of volatile brothers: Miguel, Ramon and Esteban - have their own ambitions for San Miguel and its strategic position on the Mexican border.

Enter the Man with No Name: a laconic gunslinger for hire who drifts into town and, after learning of of the Baxter-Rojo feud, spots an opportunity. He plays the warring clans off against one another and turns their vendetta to his advantage - but the stranger's duplicity riles both families, and the vengeful Rojos decide to take drastic action in the battle for San Miguel.
