Inconceivable! The Princess Bride is 30!
To Celebrate, the TCM Big Screen Classics Series
Brings Director Rob Reiner’s Adventure-Romance-Comedy-Fantasy Back to Cinemas October 15 and 18 Only
- WHAT: Thirty years after its release, the endlessly quotable adventure-romance-fantasy-comedy The Princess Bride returns to movie theaters for two days only on Sunday, October 15, and Wednesday, October 18 as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series from Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies. The screening will include a special, newly created introduction by TCM Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz and the film’s acclaimed director, Rob Reiner, who will discuss The Princess Bride and its legacy.
Swept up in the passions of their rekindled true love, Westley (Cary Elwes) and Buttercup (Robin Wright) encounter great obstacles — giants, fire swamps, rodents of unusual size — to be together in an epic tale that grandfather (Peter Falk) reads to grandson (Fred Savage). The greatest obstacle of all: despicable Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), set on making Buttercup his wife to wage war on his enemies. The lovers seek help from Fezzik (André the Giant), a gentle giant with a knack for rhyming, and Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), a skilled swordsman dedicated to the revenge business. In this hilariously epic adventure, the lengths Westley and Buttercup must go for true love are indeed “inconceivable” … and unforgettable.
