In 2016 a sole remaining 35mm print of the infamous Turkish Star Wars “Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam” aka “Man who Saved the World”– was found by a a B-movie aficionado Ed Glaser. Now, two years later a complete restored- 2k version of the movie is premiering on the only proper date –May the 4th (Star Wars day) simultaneously in London and Glasgow!

BluRay release of the movie is still not discussed (and it would be extremely difficult to accomplish due to a great number of borrowed scenes and themes most notably from
LucasFilm properties: Star Wars and Indiana Jones) but we’ll keep you informed on the US premiere and any further dates as they become available.

You can enjoy the trailer right here:

And for those of somehow still unfamiliar with the cult that is “Man who saved the world” there’s an informative clip that Neon Harbor put out, with a nice little history lesson on Turkish exploitation, their major action hero Cüneyt Arkın and the sneaky director Çetin Inanç solving his production problems with some slightly criminal activities.
