Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List will return to theaters this December

One of Steven Spielberg's most iconic films will be returning to theaters this December for its 25th anniversary. SCHINDLER'S LIST tells the true story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a German businessman who saved more than a thousand Jews from the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II. You can watch a trailer for the re-release above, and although it's been a number of years since I last watched the film, it's still just as compelling as I remember. The story of Schindler "shows the power of the individual," said Steven Spielberg while speaking with Entertainment Weekly.

When the film initially came out, it made one of the most incomprehensible acts of humankind accessible. It didn’t make it understandable, but reachable to audiences to be able explore it, to be moved in such a way to want to stand against all hatred, and know it is real and what can shockingly happen in the 20th and now the 21st centuries if we are not vigilant... I think we found a door to allow people to talk about the consequences of hatred in all its forms in a more open way. Films have that capacity to move people to explore and understand the most tragic and horrific events in history, and at the same time to highlight the resiliency of the human spirit.

SCHINDLER'S LIST will be re-released in select theaters across the United States and Canada on December 7, 2018, with the only change being that the film's picture and sound has been digitally remastered in 4K, Dolby Cinema, and Dolby Atmos.
