Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Oscar winner® Martin Scorsese's (Best Director, The Departed, 2006) classic of modern cinema, Taxi Driver, on 6th June 2011 for the first time on Blu-ray Disc, in celebration of the landmark film's 35th anniversary.

This powerful, angst-ridden urban drama was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Score (1976) and features Oscar-favorites Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Goodfellas) and Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs, The Accused) in career-defining performances.

De Niro plays the legendary Travis Bickle, a traumatized Vietnam War veteran who takes a job as a night-time Taxi Driver in New York City. When he encounters a 12-year-old prostitute named Iris, played by then-13-year-old Foster, Travis sets forth to rescue her from an exploitive pimp, played by Oscar-nominee Harvey Keitel (Best Supporting Actor, Bugsy, 1991). The film also features Cybill Shepherd (The Last Picture Show, Moonlighting).

The Taxi Driver 35th Anniversary Edition has been newly remastered following an extensive 4K digital restoration from the original camera negative, approved by cinematographer Michael Chapman and director Martin Scorsese. The film arrives on Blu-ray packed with bonus material, including an all-new Blu-ray exclusive, interactive "Script to Screen" feature, MovieIQ+Sync, and Martin Scorsese's original 1986 commentary with Paul Schrader, as well as documentaries and animated photo galleries.

At 26, Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle (De Niro) is slipping slowly into isolation and violence on the streets of New York City. Trying to solve his insomnia by driving a yellow cab on the night shift, he grows increasingly disgusted by the people who hang out at night: "Someday a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the streets". His touching attempts to woo Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), a Senator's campaign worker, turn sour when he takes her to a porn movie on their first date. He even fails in his attempt to persuade child prostitute Iris (Jodie Foster) to desert her pimp, Sport (Harvey Keitel), and return to her parents and school. Driven to the edge by powerlessness, he buys four handguns and sets out to assassinate the Senator, heading for the infamy of a "lone crazed gunman".
