Paramount Releases 4K Anniversary Edition of “Scrooged”

In the midst of summer, it may seem premature to think about the holiday season. But for avid physical media collectors, it’s always early enough to plan for the festivities, especially when it comes to Christmas classics. And this year, Paramount is making sure the Christmas spirit arrives in style with the 4K anniversary release of Richard Donner’s timeless dramedy, “Scrooged,” starring the iconic Bill Murray. Set to hit the shelves this November, this 35th-anniversary edition comes with a 4K disc and digital code, making it the perfect early Christmas present for film enthusiasts. However, what truly sets this release apart are the hours of never-before-seen special features that accompany it.

What’s Scrooged About?

“Scrooged” is a contemporary retelling of Charles Dickens’ renowned tale, “A Christmas Carol,” with a modern twist. The story revolves around Frank Cross, a ruthless TV executive portrayed by the brilliant Bill Murray. In an ironic attempt to produce a live broadcast of “A Christmas Carol” on Christmas Eve, Cross finds himself visited by three ghosts. These supernatural encounters ultimately lead to the transformation of Cross, a character with the most callous and unfeeling disposition, as he rediscovers the true essence of Christmas.

Distinguishing Features

While numerous adaptations of “A Christmas Carol” have been created over the years, “Scrooged” stands out with its perfect blend of comedy and horror. Bill Murray, renowned for his roles in “Ghostbusters” and “Groundhog Day,” delivers an outstanding performance in his funniest film. The movie’s dark comedy brilliantly complements the atmospheric setting, with Richard Donner successfully retaining the original story’s horror undertones. As you delve deeper into the plot, disturbing yet hilarious images await, making you burst with laughter and cringe in emotional pain. Donner’s background in horror undoubtedly served him well in creating this twisted adaptation. Moreover, the film boasts an exceptional ensemble cast featuring the likes of Karen Allen, John Glover, and Alfre Woodard.
