Create artwork celebrating the 35th-anniversary release of Gremlins in 4K
It's been 35 years since the Gremlins first graced the big screen. To celebrate the 35th anniversary 4K release of Gremlins, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is creating an art activation campaign celebrating the film, and they want to collaborate with you!
Gremlins is a wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief. One minute your hair will stand on end, the next you’ll hold your sides with laughter at the havoc these supposedly gentle furballs create when the rules surrounding their care and feeding are inadvertently broken one fateful Christmas. Written by Chris Columbus (The Goonies, Young Sherlock Holmes) and directed by Joe Dante (Innerspace, The ‘Burbs), Gremlins unleashes special effects that dazzle and enchant and merriment that lingers in the memory.
Gremlins will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital on October 1. The film stars Zach Galligan as Billy Peltzer, Phoebe Cates as Kate Beringer, and Hoyt Axton as Randall Peltzer, along with the voices of Frank Welker as Stripe and Howie Mandel as Gizmo. Ultra HD* showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider color spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, more lifelike colors for a home entertainment viewing experience like never before.
