Twenty Christmas seasons after its release, Richard Curtis‘ beloved 2003 masterpiece Love Actually remains a timeless classic among holiday romantic comedies. To mark its momentous 20th anniversary, Studiocanal and Universal Pictures have joined forces to offer fans around the globe the opportunity to experience the film’s magic once again, this time, in stunning 4K clarity. This newly remastered 4K edition will be accessible for at-home viewing and will also grace screens in theaters worldwide.

Awash with dreamy couple pairings portrayed by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Love Actually, though a quintessential rom-com, towers above its counterparts for more reasons than one, and as such, remains on many people’s go-to list of must-watch holiday movies. Set during Christmastime in London, the movie examines romantic relationships between eight couples including the Prime Minister, David’s (played by Hugh Grant) romance with one of his household staff, Natalie. The movie was an instant hit among audiences grossing around $247 million against an estimated budget of $40 million. Love Actually featured outstanding performances from an A-list cast including Emma Thompson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, and Liam Neeson.

Love Actually‘s 4K restoration was sourced from the 35mm original negative from Universal Pictures with the final product achieved in a collaborative effort between studios in London and Los Angeles. English colorist Adam Glassman handled the film’s color grading under the supervision of director, Curtis producing what is the first HDR version of the film in Dolby Vision.
