54: The Director's Cut, The New, Unrated And Even More Provocative Version Of The Original Film Debuts On Digital HD June 2

SANTA MONICA, CA (April 28, 2015) - 54 is back like never before! As a result of the overwhelmingly positive response to its U.S. premiere screening at the San Francisco International Film Festival on Friday, April 24th, 54: The Director's Cut, featuring 44 minutes of never-before-seen material will be made available on Digital HD on June 2ndfrom Miramax and Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Forever known as the "ultimate party movie" (New York Daily News), the film stars Ryan Phillippe (The Lincoln Lawyer), Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek (Best Actress, Frida, 2002), Sela Ward (TV's "CSI: NY"), Breckin Meyer (TV's "Franklin and Bash") and Sherry Stringfield (TV's "ER") along with Neve Campbell (the Scream franchise) and Mike Myers (the Austin Powers franchise).


Relive the outrageous escapades of Studio 54 in this new, unrated Director's Cut. Seventeen years after its original theatrical release, director Mark Christopher has finally managed to complete the version of 54 that everyone signed up to make in the first place: the story of three friends - a busboy, a bartender and a coat-check girl - and the sordid love triangle that nearly tore them apart, set against the glittery excess of New York's Studio 54 dance club. The film, which debuted to positive response at the Berlin International Film Festival, also screened at Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta Film Festivals as well as the BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival. 54: The Director's Cutwill continue to screen at festivals around the world.
