Martin Scorsese will premiere his long-in-the-works George Harrison documentary later this year, says Harrison’s widow, Olivia: “I assume we’re going to announce it sometime soon… but it will be this year.” The documentary about the late Beatle, George Harrison: Living in the Material World was first announced in 2007. The doc will be one in a string of great music documentaries Scorsese has created, from 1976’s The Last Waltz, which featured a unforgettable farewell performance from The Band, and 2005’s No Direction Home, about Bob Dylan, to 2008’s Shine a Light featuring the Rolling Stones.

The Tree of Life star Jessica Chastain reveals shooting details from the movie: “hundreds” of unique and beautiful moments occurred during filming under Terrence Malick’s direction. The butterfly landing on her hand, for example, was a serendipitous and accidental moment and recalled another chance encounter of baby birds who had fallen from their nest. “I thought it was so beautiful," she says. "Also, the mother was up in the trees trying to figure out how to get her children back and I thought for sure, 'Oh, this is going to make it in.'"

Citizen Kane, the most lauded film of all time, will be digitally refurbished to premiere on Blu-ray on September 13th to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the film. The American Film Institute’s pick for the number one film of all time will appear in the original nitrate for a hi-definition restoration. This collector’s edition will also feature 48 pages of memos and correspondence from the film’s production and the Academy-Award nominated documentary The Battle Over Citizen Kane.
