Warner Bros. has announced that Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 classic Vietnam war movie Full Metal Jacket is set for an 4K Ultra HD and digital release this September featuring a brand new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative; check out the cover artwork, feature details and trailer below…
A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. ‘Joker’ (Matthew Modine), ‘Animal Mother’ (Adam Baldwin), ‘Gomer’ (Vincent D’Onofrio), ‘Eightball’ (Dorian Harewood) and ‘Cowboy’ (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humor.
Full Metal Jacket stars Matthew Modine (Birdy, Vision Quest, television’s “Stranger Things”), Adam Baldwin (Independence Day, Serenity), Vincent D’Onofrio (Men in Black, Jurassic World), Lee Ermey (Seven, Toy Story franchise), Dorian Harewood (Gothika, Assault on Precinct 13), Arliss Howard (Amistad, Moneyball), Kevyn Major Howard (Alien Nation), and Ed O’Ross (Dick Tracy).

- Commentary by Adam Baldwin, Vincent D’Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey and Critic/Screenwriter Jay Cocks
- Featurette Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil
- Theatrical Trailer
Full Metal Jacket arrives on 4K Ultra HD on September 22nd.
