Charlie Chaplin's films all set to return to cinemas worldwide

A man of extra-ordinary drive and determination, Charlie Chaplin's antics made the whole world laugh. 

It has been a century since the greatest comic artist of the screen directed and starred in his first feature-length film “The Kid”.

A piece of good news for Chaplin's fans, as some of the silent comic’s best-known movies are being restored to be released in cinemas worldwide.

French film company mk2 and international distributor Piece of Magic said in a statement they had teamed up to mark the centennial. The Paris-based company’s 2k and 4k restorations of Chaplin’s films include classics “The Gold Rush”, “City Lights”, “The Circus”, “Modern Times” and “The Great Dictator”.

mk2 will release a 4K restoration of “The Kid” in France in the autumn while Piece of Magic will work with its network of exhibitors to release the film and others in around 50 territories as well as collaborate with mk2 distribution partners.

“In 1921 ‘The Kid’ confirmed Chaplin’s stardom and extraordinary skills in the art of cinema,” mk2 Chief Executive Nathanaël Karmitz said in a statement.

“It is fitting that this year in partnership with Piece of Magic we return Chaplin to cinemas around the world and continue to maintain the legacy of his work, celebrating its modernity and emotions that live on today.”

The companies have revealed that there will be newly designed posters and trailers that are “designed for contemporary audiences” to mark the anniversary.
