Highlander: 30th Anniversary Edition - Preview & competition


Preview by Jack Foley

TO mark the 30th anniversary of the time travelling action fantasy favourite, Highlander, STUDIOCANAL is thrilled to announce that the cult classic has been fully restored in 4K and will be released with brand new bonus material.

There can only be 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 Kruger (Clancy Brown).

The film was directed by Russell Mulcahy (Swimming Upstream, The Real McCoy) and features an original score by Michael Kamen and Queen.

Highlander went onto inspire four sequels and a television series.

Restored by Deluxe London, the restoration of Highlander is based on a 4K scan of the original camera negative, followed by a full 4K workflow, with the approval of director Russell Mulcahy.

The DVD and Blu-ray re-release includes a new interview with Mulcahy, as well as a new interview with Lambert, plus deleted scenes, a making of documentary in four parts, and audio commentary with Mulcachy.
