Doctor Zhivago Still - H 2015

The first preview for David Lean's classic in 50 years teases a British Film Institute re-release next month.

Almost 50 years after David Lean's epic take on Boris Pasternak's romance first hit U.S. screens and just months after the passing of its lead star, Doctor Zhivago has a new trailer, courtesy of the British Film Institute.

The trailer comes a month ahead of the theatrical release of a new 4K digital restoration of the multiple Oscar-winning film, which is set to hit screens across the U.K. on Nov. 27 as part of the BFI Love season.

The BFI has been ramping up its program of theatrical re-releases through a partnership with Warner Bros, with 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner: The Final Cut and The Shining — each with new trailers — returning to cinemas.
