In the last few years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of digital artists and designers making a splash in the creative world.
With a slew of high-profile collaborations between artists and brands, the creative community is buzzing over the new generation of artists and their work.
Now, 50 years after the film’s release, this celebration of the film will include a special edition digital edition of Dirty Harry, featuring the film as a digital download.
The digital edition will be available to all subscribers of Devolver Digital for $9.99 and includes all four Dirty Harry audio tracks.
“Dirty, Harry is one of the most iconic and influential films of all time,” said Devolver Creative Director Matt Liss, “and the digital edition is a great way to celebrate it in a way that really celebrates the film, the story, and the people involved in making it.”
The digital version will be released in full on August 12, 2018, and will be exclusive to Devolver digital subscribers.
“We wanted to make sure we could celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Dirty, Harry as a whole, with this digital edition,” Liss said.
“As an artist myself, I was inspired by the music, the visuals and the dialogue, so it was an opportunity to capture that essence of the movie and create something special.”
The 50th celebration marks the 50-year anniversary of the release of the original version of the Dirty Harry film, which was released in November of 1975.
“The film itself was a milestone film, but the 50 years have seen it go from being a hit to one of our most beloved films of the 1980s,” Lisss said.
“‘Dirty,’ like so many other films of its era, was a hit not just for its story, but also for its characters, its music and its visuals.”
The movie is also remembered for the fact that it was the first major film to feature a black female lead, as well as for the iconic scene in which Harry and his friends find the stolen property.
“For me, it was a moment in time, a moment where I felt as though I was in my early 20s,” said Liss.
“I had seen the movie a couple of times, but I hadn’t seen it in theaters.
I didn’t really know what it was, but there it was.”
The “Dirtiest of Cunts” stars Jack Nicholson, Kevin Costner, Barbara Hershey, and Gary Oldman.
The film is also nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Original Score.
Devolver has been honored to work on numerous film projects for its clients, including Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Fox Searchlight Pictures, and Lionsgate.
