Sony Pictures Adding The Fifth Element & Léon: The Professional To Supreme Cinema Series Line

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has given the go on expanding its newly created Supreme Cinema Series line of titles with the additions of Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element and Léon: The Professional.

Set to debut on October 27, their arrival will be a few weeks removed from the banner launch title, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (interestingly enough, all three feature actor Gary Oldman). Much like that release, Luc Besson’s films will have limited edition collector’s packaging with the acrylic “Clear Case” and a booklet of rare photos and behind-the-scenes detail.

As the pioneer of the Blu-ray format, Sony is looking to level up by remastering some of its catalog with 4K restorations and Dolby Atmos audio.

FifthElement

New York cab driver Korben Dallas didn’t mean to be a hero, but he just picked up the kind of fare that only comes along every five thousand years: A perfect beauty, a perfect being, a perfect weapon. Together, they must save the world. Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, and Gary Oldman star in acclaimed director Luc Besson’s outrageous sci-fi adventure, an extravagantly styled tale of good against evil set in an unbelievable twenty-third century world.

Bonus features to include:
4K Restoration & Dolby Atmos® Audio (Dolby TrueHD 7.1 compatible)
