Directed by renowned filmmaker Jim Henson, with George Lucas (“Star Wars”) as executive producer, and a screenplay by Monty Python’s Terry Jones from a story by Dennis Lee and Jim Henson, “Labyrinth” stars David Bowie (“The Prestige”), Academy Award® winner Jennifer Connelly (Best Supporting Actress, “A Beautiful Mind,” 2001), and a collection of creatures brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™, in the story of a girl (Connelly) who must journey through a maze to save her little brother from the Goblin King (Bowie).

“Labyrinth defined a generation of fantasy with imagination and whimsy that is not easily matched in the genre today,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “We are thrilled to bring the new restoration of this classic to the big screen for the first time, so audiences can experience the film as it was meant to be seen.”

Following the theatrical re-release, the beloved fantasy will come to 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD & Digital on September 20, including an all-new collectible Blu-ray Digibook packaging and limited edition gift set.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
