Next year Spike Lee‘s (best film to date), Do The Right Thing celebrates its 25th anniversary! In 2009 a two-disc special edition DVD (and also Blu-ray) set, loaded with extras, was released to celebrate the film’s then 20th anniversary.
Entertainment Weekly and Good Morning America joined the cast (Lee, Rosie Perez, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, Samuel L. Jackson, and more) at site where the movie was filmed for a trip down memory lane.
