Highlander Restoration Trailer

"There can be only one!" He's back! Studiocanal UK is planning freshly restored, high def 4K re-release of the action classic Highlander, to celebrate its 30th anniversary since it was originally released in 1986. Christopher Lambert stars as Connor MacLeod, an immortal Scottish swordsman who must confront the last of his immortal opponents to claim the "Prize". This is an action classic that many regard as one of their favorite action films, and it was already re-released as a Director's Cut a few years ago. But there's nothing like seeing your favorite film from the 80's restored and looking better than ever. It's also good to take your mind off the reboot/remake/sequels and just enjoy the original again. Plus - Sean Connery. Enough said.

Here's the new 4K restoration trailer for Russell Mulcahy's Highlander, from Studiocanal UK's YouTube:

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 The Kurgan (Clancy Brown). Highlander is directed by Russell Mulcahy (who went on to direct The Shadow and Resident Evil: Extinction), from a script by Gregory Widen and Peter Bellwood & Larry Ferguson. It was originally released in March of 1986. The new 4K restoration will be available on Blu-ray in the UK starting this July - order here. One of your favorites?

Russel Mulcahy was a very promising director in the 80s. But after Highlander, he directed a long series of dudes, with one minor exception: The shadow which is a guilty pleasure.

I'd rather watch old movies on the big screen than remakes in any way. This will be cool, assuming it comes to a theater near me.

Couldn't agree more, there are so many of them I would love to see in a theater again.. most notably Aliens

I like when they go to Scotland and everyone is drunk, all the time.

This was somehow weird version of B movie for me first time it appeared in 1980s. It still is ... Although, I like to feel, just for a moment though, that nostalgia behind it ...

I remember seeing this in the theater when it first came out...when I was 14, ugh. Where has the time gone? I'll watch it again to see if they add in extra stuff and just cause.

I might have to buy a 4K television because of this...

Bl00dwerK on Jun 9, 2016


I can't wait for this to come out on Betamax!

This was such a great premise for a series of movies - heck they could have even jumped to any time period they wanted to use - but unfortunately they just screwed up the sequels so bad.
