New Trailer and Artwork for the 4k Restoration of BASIC INSTINCT

basic instinct
A new restoration of Paul Verhoeven's thriller is coming this summer.

Back in 1992, the most talked about movie to come out of Hollywood wasn't a superhero extravaganza but an erotic thriller. Different times, eh?

Paul Verhoeven's Basic Instinct was dismissed as exploitative trash by some, hailed as an exemplary piece of boundary pushing genre cinema by others, but everyone had an opinion.

Thanks to Studiocanal, Basic Instinct has been restored in 4k from the original 35mm negative, supervised by Verhoeven himself. It will be made available as a 4k Ultra HD, blu-ray and DVD on June 14th.

Bonus features include a new 52-minute documentary featuring exclusive interviews and personal anecdotes from Paul Verhoeven, Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas, editor Frank J. Urioste, writer Joe Eszterhas and cinematographer Jan de Bont; three featurettes; a new trailer; commentary tracks by Verhoeven and De Bont, and Camille Paglia; screen tests; and storyboard comparisons.

You can pre-order the UHD, DVD and blu-ray editions here and the steelbook here.

Check out Studiocanal's new trailer and artwork below.




The official synopsis reads:

Michael Douglas stars as hardboiled San Francisco detective Nick Curran, a troubled cop with a history of trigger-happy shootings and a weakness for beautiful women and dangerous relationships. Sharon Stone is Catherine Tramell, a stunning, enigmatic novelist with a talent for seduction and a history of relationships that end in death. The death of a former rock star sends Nick into the orbit of the victim’s lover, Catherine, who immediately becomes prime suspect in the murder. Catherine ignites Nick’s suspicions and his passion, and he soon becomes involved in his most dangerous liaison yet.
