Full Metal Jacket, Stanley Kubrick's acclaimed 1987 Vietnam War masterpiece, will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray 21st September 2020 from Warner Home Video. Based on Gustav Hasford's 1979 novel "The Short-Timers", Full Metal Jacket was produced and directed by Kubrick from a screenplay by Kubrick, Michael Herr and Hasford.

The film stars Matthew Modine (Birdy, Vision Quest, television's Stranger Things), Adam Baldwin (Independence Day, Serenity), Vincent D'Onofrio (Men in Black, Jurassic World), Lee Ermey (Seven, Toy Story franchise), Dorian Harewood (Gothika, Assault on Precinct 13), Arliss Howard (Amistad, Moneyball), Kevyn Major Howard (Alien Nation), and Ed O'Ross (Dick Tracy). Jan Harlan served as Executive Producer and Philip Hobbs served as Co-Producer.

Full Metal Jacket was nominated for an Oscar® at the 60th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay for Stanley Kubrick, Michael Herr and Gustav Hasford.

Recognised as one of the most accomplished, innovative, and influential directors in film history, Stanley Kubrick was a perfectionist who maintained complete artistic control and privacy during the shooting, and even the subsequent marketing of his movies.

Many of Kubrick's acclaimed works were received as controversial and provocative, yet still regarded as brilliant and visionary. Kubrick's films earned 19 Oscar® nominations including three for Best Picture (Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon) and four for Directing (Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon). In 1960, Kubrick's Spartacus won four Oscars® (Actor in a Supporting Role, Art Direction, Cinematography and Costume Design). In 1968 Kubrick won the Oscar® for Special Visual Effects for 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging. Stanley Kubrick's former personal assistant Leon Vitali worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. during the mastering process.

A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanising process that turns people into trained killers.

The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. 'Joker' (Matthew Modine), 'Animal Mother' (Adam Baldwin), 'Gomer' (Vincent D'Onofrio), 'Eightball' (Dorian Harewood) and 'Cowboy' (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humor.
