David Bowie's iconic film The Man Who Fell To Earth will be shown in cinemas to mark its 40th anniversary.

The Man Who Fell To Earth, released in 1976, features Bowie as an alien named Thomas Jerome Newtown who came to Earth to take water back to his drought-ridden planet. The film was directed by Nicolas Roeg and written by Paul Mayersberg and was based on Walter Tevis' 1963 novel of the same name. It was produced by Michael Deeley and Barry Spikings.

A 4k restoration of the film will be shown in cinemas across England on September 9, according to Pitchfork. STUDIOCANAL, who restored the film, will also release it on DVD and Blu-ray in the U.K. on October 10. It is also expected to be released in the U.S. and Germany too.
