On January 24th, David Bowie Falls to Earth and into your Blu-ray collection!


Just over a year ago, David Bowie passed away, shocking fans across the globe. But now he has returned (in a manner of speaking) in this all new 3-disc set of THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH! Admittedly, I've haven't watched this movie (yet), but if you're a fan of the film, or just Bowie himself, I think you'll definitely want to pick this up!

Synopsis: David Bowie makes his unforgettable feature film debut as a visitor from a dying planet who becomes a reclusive multimillionaire, only to lose himself in an earthbound abyss of decadence, self-destruction and alienation. Candy Clark, Rip Torn and Buck Henry co-star in this enigmatic masterpiece directed by Nicolas Roeg (DON'T LOOK NOW, PERFORMANCE) that remains an extraordinary combination of sci-fi epic and mind-blowing allegory, as well as one of the most provocative motion picture events of our time.

Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet on a mission to take water back to his home planet in the midst of a catastrophic drought. Using the advanced technology of his home planet to patent many inventions on Earth, Newton, aided by leading patent attorney Oliver Farnsworth (BUCK HENRY, THE GRADUATE, GET SMART), acquires incredible wealth as the head of a technology-based conglomerate that he intends to use to finance the construction of a space vehicle to ship water back to his planet.

Newton embarks on a relationship with hotel maid Mary-Lou (Candy Clark, AMERICAN GRAFFITI, ZODIAC) and makes progress with the construction of his vehicle, but soon finds his true identity at risk via his roguish colleague and confidant Dr. Nathan Bryce (Rip Torn, MEN IN BLACK, MARIE ANTOINETTE) who threatens not only his relationship with Mary-Lou, but his freedom and chances of making it home to the family he yearns for.
