In the new trailer packaged for the film’s return to theaters we see David Byrne returning to wearing the iconic giant white dress of the concert.
The inimitable 1984 Talking Heads concert film, Stop Making Sensewill be restored in 4K and re-released in theaters by A24, as reported by Deadline.
In a fun video teaser accompanying the news, David Byrne goes to the dry cleaners to pick up his signature giant suit from the film. In addition to the theatrical re-release, a deluxe edition of the Stop Making Sense soundtrack will be released on vinyl and digitally on August 18. The reissue, courtesy of Rhino, will include the complete concert, plus two previously unreleased songs.
Stop Making Sensedirected by the late Jonathan Demme, was filmed over three nights at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood in December 1983. The film was inducted into the National Film Registry in 2021.
