Were you aware that Jack Nicholson turns 80 this year?
How about it’s been 42 years since One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was released?
I certainly wasn’t, but here we are, standing on the eve of both events occurring within the next couple of months and, to celebrate, the BFI is re-releasing the classic piece of cinema in order to coincide with the formidable actor’s birthday.
To build up the hype, the BFI have released a trailer to get everyone frothing at the mouth (though not too much, lest you end up in a psychiatric hospital themselves, unable to watch the film.)
Let’s be honest, if you have already seen and enjoyed One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, you don’t really need to watch this, but if you haven’t, you may want to take a peek in the hopes that some of the magic will rub off on you and get you buying a ticket to an utterly fantastic film.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is out in cinemas April 14th!
