Over time, thriller films have seen remarkable growth. From Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho to more modern projects like Bong Joon-ho’s 2019 project Parasite, the thriller genre has outpaced almost every other genre of films. Subsequently, demand for these types of projects is higher than it’s ever been and filmmakers have been unable to keep up. This is exactly why David Fincher’s iconic 1995 film Se7en is set to be rereleased in theaters in the near future and will be fully remastered in 4K.
Released nearly thirty years ago, Se7en stars Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as two detectives who are tasked with tracking down a serial killer. Hunting such a menacing individual has its consequences though, and director David Fincher captured that excellently and delivered a project that had fans on the edge of their seats virtually every second. This makes it of no surprise that Fincher himself announced this week that Se7en will be making a return to theaters, with the film being fully remastered in 4K to the pleasure of audiences. The announcement was officially made at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, however no release date for the remastered project was announced as Fincher and his team are working diligently to update the project for longtime fans. Se7en generated $327 million in box offices around the globe on a budget of just $33 million, and now it will see continued success when the project hirs theaters again in the near future.
Amongst the countless classic films that were released during the 1990’s, Se7en is amongst the top of those films. Fincher is revered for his work as a director on a number of films including Fight Club and The Social Network, but Se7en might be the project he is best known for. It is certainly fitting that the film would see a rerelease, and now a new generation of fans are going to be introduced to the cerebral thriller that is Se7en.
