This spring, Fathom Events, Paramount Pictures and Screen Media present limited theatrical screenings in March and April of two films to commemorate Scotland’s fight for independence in the 13th century: Paramount’s award-winning epic Braveheart.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Braveheart won five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, and will screen on March 22 and 23. Robert the Bruce will make its U.S. premiere in a one-day-only presentation on April 16. In addition to these special screenings, Braveheart will be available in a Limited Edition 25th anniversary 4K Ultra HD Steelbook beginning May 5 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
A richly detailed saga of power, passion and the fight for freedom, Braveheart stars Mel Gibson (who also took home the Oscar® for Best Director) as William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who rallies his countrymen to liberation from oppressive English rule. Fathom Events’ special anniversary presentations of Braveheart will also feature a sneak peek at the highly anticipated Robert the Bruce. The new film picks up the historical timeline when its title character, now the King of Scotland, retreats from the battlefield and is cared for by peasants who inspire him to rise again. Scottish actor Angus Macfadyen portrays Robert the Bruce in both films.
