‘Goodfellas’ to return for 4K screening in UK cinemas

Martin Scorsese gangster classic was first released in 1990

Goodfellas is being re-released at UK cinemas in the New Year in 4K.

The Martin Scorsese mafia classic was first released in 1990.

Now thanks to a partnership between Warner Bros. and the BFI, the film, which stars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta will be shown in UK cinemas again on January 20, 2017. You can watch a trailer for the new, super-clear 4K update below.


Meanwhile, the first trailer for Scorsese’s latest film, Silence, was recently released.

Based upon a 1966 novel of the same name by Japanese author Shūsaku Endō, Silence follows two Portuguese Jesuit priests (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) in the 17th century who suffer a crisis of faith when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor (Liam Neeson).

The film, which will be released in the US on December 23 (a UK date has yet to be confirmed, but is not expected to be released until 2017), apparently had its script completed back in 1996.

De Niro recently said he felt like he did “after 9/11′ when Donald Trump was voted America’s new President-elect.

The actor also called him “totally nuts” earlier this year while questioning his ability to lead a country.


“I feel like I did after 9/11. We’ll just see what happens. There will be many, many, many, many, many people watching,” he added.

In October, the actor was featured in a celebrity endorsement video in which he called Trump “blatantly stupid”, “a punk”, “a dog”, “a pig”, “a con” and “a bullshit artist”. He also could be seen saying he would “like to punch [Trump] in the face”.

However, he later admitted he would not be able to do that. “I can’t do that now – he’s the president,” he said.

“And I have to respect that position, even though we all know what he… anyway. We have to see what he’s gonna do, and how he’s really gonna follow through on certain things. As we even see now, in a lot of cities, a lot of people are getting very upset and protesting.”
