Paramount Pictures has apparently decided that everything old is new again, especially in the time of coronavirus quarantines.

This week, the studio launches “Paramount Presents,” a new way to market library titles that are “enduringly popular movies, as well as films that had a cultural impact upon their release.” The new label will also be used to bring some of these films back to theaters for limited theatrical runs to revive the big-screen experience.

The first Blu-rays, all remastered from a 4K film transfer, include two iconic titles from the ’50s: King Creole (1958) starring Elvis Presley, and Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief (1955) with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. Both feature a new specially produced documentary with historian and critic Leonard Maltin. also out now is 1987’s immortal and endlessly imitated thriller Fatal Attraction, which includes a new “Filmmaker Focus” with director Adrian Lyne as well as the previously released alternate ending among other extras. Fatal Attraction is also slated for a still-to-be-announced 2020 theatrical reissue — that is, when theaters begin to reopen of course. It is the first of their announced titles to get that planned treatment.
