'SCARFACE' TO HIT THEATERS AUGUST 31
ALSO: AMC INCLUDES THREE DE PALMA FILMS FOR MOB WEEK; BAUER TALKS

To hype up its upcoming Blu-Ray release of Brian De Palma's Scarface September 6, Universal will be delivering the film to theaters for one night only, on Wednesday, August 31st at 7:30pm (local time). The film will be preceeded by a 20-minute feature from the Blu-Ray package that includes interviews with filmmakers and other talent discussing the influence of Scarface. Tickets for the special theater event go on sale today, August 1st. To check on where the nearest screening will be, go to Fathom Events and put in your zip code (you may have to like the Scarface page on Facebook first.

Meanwhile, this week is "Mob Week" on AMC, hosted by Rudolph Giuliani. Three De Palma films will be included: The Untouchables (Wednesday, 8pm eastern), Carlito's Way (Wednesday, 10:45pm eastern), and Scarface (Thursday, 8pm eastern). Other films include The Godfather (Monday), The Godfather Part II (Tuesday), Donnie Brasco (Friday), GoodFellas (Saturday), and Pulp Fiction (Sunday).

STEVEN BAUER TALKS 'SCARFACE'
And that's not all. In anticipation of the upcoming Blu-Ray release of Scarface, Asylum UK's Oliver Jones interviewed Steven Bauer, who said that he is very proud to have been a part of the film. "Yeah," Bauer told Jones, "I mean of course, a film like Scarface, it became like this huge thing, bigger than anyone at the time could ever have really guessed. Was it like a curse for my career? In a way. At first people hated the film. Well, the critics I mean at least. They said this film is horrible, no-one who was involved with this film should feel any sense of pride, or goodness -- there isn't a single redeeming thing about this film. But then we had the fans. There were people coming out of the screenings going crazy. When something is that big, you become that person to them, and I guess it can be hard to become anything else -- which, you know, is what an actor does. Do I wish it had never happened? Not at all. I'm really proud of my role in the film and I'm really proud of the film as a whole, it was such a privilege to be a part of it."

Bauer also talked about working with Al Pacino. "I guess you could say Scarface set the tone for the rest of my career," Bauer told Jones. "In the film, I think when Tony kills Manny, it's like, he's gone past redemption, that's his point of no return. People still come up to me in the street and are like, I can't believe he killed you man. I can't believe it. When I came onto the set Al really took he under his wing -- he showed me that acting can be really instinctive -- you learn the script, you trust it. And you see how it comes out. I think we all knew we were part of something special. Me and Al sat there saying what are people going to think of this -- we were imagining where we'd be a year later." Bauer also briefly talked about how he and Pacino met with Cuban immigrants "about what it was like in Cuba. And they were tough guys. That was the thing that really struck me, how tough these guys were, how bad they had it, how few opportunities they'd had. That was so far from my experience, it really stood out to me. I grew up in America and I felt like I could do anything, I had lot of opportunities. That certainly had an effect on my character."
