3:10 to Yuma & Ivan's Childhood on Criterion Blu-ray in January

25 October 2017

The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in January 2018.

On 8 January comes the original Western classic, 3:10 to Yuma. Beautifully shot and acted, the psychologically complex and humane action movie tells the tale of a mild-mannered cattle rancher who takes on the task of shepherding a captured outlaw.

29 January welcomes Ivan's Childhood. The debut feature by the great Andrei Tarkovsky (Andrei Rublev) is a poetic journey through the shards and shadows of one boy’s war-ravaged youth, and remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of war on children.

3:10 to Yuma

In this beautifully shot and acted, psychologically complex western, Van Heflin (Shane) is a mild-mannered cattle rancher who takes on the task of shepherding a captured outlaw, played with cucumber-cool charisma by Glenn Ford (The Big Heat), to the train that will take him to prison. This apparently simple plan turns into a nerve-racking cat-and-mouse game that will test each man’s particular brand of honour. Based on a story by Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty), 3:10 to Yuma is a thrilling, humane action movie, directed by the supremely talented studio filmmaker Delmer Daves (Jubal) with intense feeling and precision.

Special Edition features:

  • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio
  • New interviews with author Elmore Leonard and Glenn Ford’s son and biographer, Peter Ford
  • A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones
