The two-disc set will also include a wealth of new extras including the first extensive ‘Making of’ documentary featuring all of the main cast and crew. The 4K version will be released digitally in the UK the same day.
A certified ‘80s cult classic, the film was directed by Russell Mulcahy (Swimming Upstream, The Real McCoy) and stars Christopher Lambert (Mortal Combat, Fortress), Sean Connery (James Bond), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, Starship Troopers) and Roxanne Hart.
Featuring an unforgettable original score by Michael Kamen and Queen, HIGHLANDER went on to inspire four further sequels and a television series.
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE
1985 New York City; the Battle to end all Battles. The last remaining Immortals gather together to fight to the death: decapitation alone can kill them, and the victor alone can lay claim to “The Prize”. Amongst the contestants is Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert), who fought his first Battle in 1536 on the highlands of Scotland, swordsman Ramirez (Sean Connery) who mentored MacLeod and taught him the ways of the Immortals, and the evil and brutal barbarian Victor Kurgan (Clancy Brown).
