ParamountParamount UK has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of Roman Polanski's Chinatown (1974), starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston, Perry Lopez, and John Hillerman. The release is scheduled to arrive on the market on June 17.

Produced by the legendary Robert Evans, CHINATOWN was originally released on June 26, 1974 and received widespread critical acclaim along with 11 Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture. In 1991, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."

Robert Towne's brilliant Academy Award®-winning screenplay weaves a tragic and shocking tale of corruption, greed, and the human propensity for evil. Powerhouse performances by Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway and John Huston, a riveting story inspired by real events, vivid imagery, and a stirring score combine to make an unforgettable film that is essential for every cinephile's collection.
