Clockwise is coming to Blu-ray for the first time in November

Clockwise (1986)
Dir: Christopher Morahan | Cast: Howard Lloyd-Lewis, John Cleese, Jonathan Bowater, Penny Leatherbarrow | Writer: Michael Frayn (original screenplay)

The John Cleese comedy, Clockwise, is set to make its Blu-ray debut on 19th November on a new special edition release featuring a new interview. A new DVD release and digital download will be made available at the same time.

With a razor-sharp screenplay by acclaimed author and playwright Michael Frayn (Noises Off, Copenhagen) and great supporting turns from Alison Steadman (Life is SweetPride and Prejudice), Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Joan Hickson (‘Miss Marple’), CLOCKWISE is the film that inspired Cleese to make A Fish Called Wanda and remains a much treasured British comedy classic to this day.
