Leon gets a 4K restoration and new DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray release
Studio Canal have announced that, to mark it's 25th Anniversary, Leon is set to debut on 4K Blu-ray with a brand new 4K restoration alongside new DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film. It is scheduled for release on 28th October.
Mathilda (Natalie Portman) is only 12 years old but is already familiar with the dark side of life: her abusive father stores drugs for corrupt police officers, and her mother neglects her. Léon (Jean Reno), who lives down the hall, tends to his houseplants and works as a hired hitman for mobster Tony (Danny Aiello). When her family is murdered by crooked DEA agent Stansfield (Gary Oldman), Mathilda joins forces with a reluctant Leon to learn his deadly trade and avenge her family's deaths.
The release will feature the full 2004 Director's Cut which extends the film by 23 minutes mostly focusing on the relationship that develops between Leon and Mathilda.
The 4K edition will include support for Dolby Vision HDR.
