In 1974, Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway starred in the neo-noir Chinatown. Similar to its predecessors, a private eye is hired to expose a married man’s infidelities, but he learns that the situation is much more complicated, involving plenty of deceit, corruption, and murder. It uses elements of film noir from the ’40s and ’50s with updated themes and style.

As the acclaimed film celebrates its 50th anniversary, Paramount is celebrating with a 4K Blu-ray release. The movie’s original camera negative went through the 4K restoration process for a digital version, and now it’s being offered as a physical 4K release for the first time.

The limited edition Chinatown 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray features the iconic poster as the inside cover and the 4K disc includes a digital copy of the movie. It also comes with a Blu-ray of the 1990 sequel, The Two Jakes, that featured Nicholson taking on the dual role of star and director.

The 4K Blu-ray special features include the featurettes “A State of Mind: Author Sam Wasson on Chinatown” in which the film historian and author discusses the movie’s significance and legacy, “Chinatown Memories” with producer Hawk Koch sharing stories about the movie, and “The Trilogy that Never Was” with Wesson revealing what would have happened in a third installment.

The new bonus content is joined by special features from earlier physical releases. They include commentary by screenwriter Robert Towne with David Fincher, and the featurettes “Water and Power,” “Chinatown: An Appreciation,” “Chinatown: The Beginning and the End,” “Chinatown: Filming,” “Chinatown: Legacy,” and the theatrical trailer.

It will become available on June 18, 2024.
