Watch the color version of ‘Nebraska’ on cable (or don’t)


If you’re a fan of Alexander Payne’s Oscar nominated Nebraska, you may have said to yourself, “I like this movie a lot, but I just wish I could watch it in a much worse, more generic and plain ruined format.”

Well now is your chance. The Playlist reports that the cable channel Epix is proudly promoting the world premiere of Nebraska, in full color. The film will air this Sunday August 10 at 10 PM ET, just after a showing of the original version of Nebraska in black and white.

Granted, this isn’t CBS turning Humphrey Bogart’s suit powder blue so they can show Casablanca during Christmas. Due to negotiations in trying to get the film made, Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael was forced to shoot the film in digital, not black and white film stock, so a color version does exist. Payne even says it looks very good, but that he intended for you to watch the black and white version originally released.

This would be a fairly unique chance to watch the two versions side by side, as who knows if the color version will ever be released on a Criterion DVD or in some form outside of Romania. You’ll just have to let us know how it is.
