THE FIFTH ELEMENT Synopsis:

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. Now fully remastered in 4K, experience this dynamic action favorite like never before.

THE FIFTH ELEMENT has a run time of approximately 126 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sci-fi violence, some sexuality and brief nudity.

THE FIFTH ELEMENT Bonus Features Include (for both skus):

LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL Synopsis:

Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman and Danny Aiello star in LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL, a go-for-broke thriller about a professional assassin whose work becomes dangerously personal. Calling himself a “cleaner,” the mysterious Léon is New York’s top hitman. When his next-door neighbors are murdered, Léon becomes the unwilling guardian of the family’s sole survivor - 12-year-old Mathilda. But Mathilda doesn’t just want protection; she wants revenge. Training her in the deadly tricks of his trade, Léon helps her track the psychotic agent who murdered her family. From the electrifying opening to the fatal finale, LÉON THE PROFESSIONAL is a nonstop crescendo of action and suspense. Experience both the U.S. theatrical and international versions of this beloved action masterpiece, now fully remastered in 4K.

The theatrical version of LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL has a run time of approximately 110 minutes, while the extended version has a run time of approximately 133 minutes. The theatrical version is rated R for scenes of strong graphic violence, and for language. Clear Case packaging produced by Multi Packaging Solutions.

LÉON: THE PROFESSIONAL Bonus Features Include (for both skus):
  • 4K Restoration & Dolby Atmos® Audio (Dolby TrueHD 7.1 compatible)*
  • Both the theatrical and extended versions of the film (both remastered in 4K & with Dolby Atmos)
  • Featurettes:
  • “Cast and Crew Look Back”
  • “Jean Reno: The Road to Léon”
  • “Natalie Portman: Starting Young”
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

*To experience Dolby Atmos at home, Dolby Atmos enabled AV receivers and additional speakers are required; however, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

Probably have to buy the Fifth Element for the 7.1 audio track and the video remaster. What a great film.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

Damn, I was not buying into this SPHE marketing, but Fifth Element is a great visual and sound movie so this one is tempting if priced right.

That's exactly what the studio is counting on. Buy the movie twice: now in 1080p with "remastered in 4K" nonsense, and a year later when it comes out in actual 4K. Enjoy being conned and being charged twice for one product.

I have literally bought the Fifth Element on blu ray three times already! The first was the original blu ray that had horrible video. The second was the steel book from best buy that also had the bad transfer, and finally the remastered version. Now I have to buy it again for the forth time!

I'll probably wait until real 4K is available for some movies. I too have multiple copies of things (even the original faces 'Star Wars' on LD - have two LD players still but have not played a disc in years).

I agree but on the other hand, I would rather have a couple copies then not have the studio release a better copy. I know they should do the best they can the first time but I want them to see the value in releasing classic movies like this.

I do not want to live in a world were Starwars never gets remastered in 4K HDR Rec 2020 because disc media in dead.

I have no interest in 4K yet and I'm all about Atmos right now... so I'm sold on both of these. No need for the collector's packaging though, so I'll wait to see what the price for the standard SKUs are. The standard SKU for Dracula with Atmos is down around $15 right now, so if these come out near that price point, I'm all over that.

I am still waiting to find a world where I can purchase blu ray copies of the three original Star Wars movies as they were released theatrically. Han shot first!!!

But to stay on subject I will likely buy both of these titles. I never have purchased a blu ray copy of The Fifth Element. How many times has that movie been released on BR anyways? The first announcement about Dracula did not interest me, but these two titles will remove some money from my bank account.

Is SPHE only releasing movies in this "Limited Edition Supreme Cinema Series" special edition that star Gary Oldman?

Packing a lot of sound into a small room.
268 square feet/2144 cubic feet
7.2 surround sound.

Damn, two of my all time favorites. We watch these at least once a year. First Dracula and now these? I guess I have to put some money aside for these movies. Great news.

Fifth Element ... of course, it was the DVD poster movie playing all the time, then HD poster movie also.
Makes sense, and yes I'll be in line for my copy also, like nearly everyone else who's posted here so far....

Nice catch. I'd forgotten that all three movies have Oldman in common.

The real question: did they finally fix that dang green trapezoid around the ship launching off of earth? I love this movie, have bought it three times now, but that stupid green trapezoid ticks me off every time. So lazy...

(I'll wait for the uhd-bd since I've already bought it twice on BD)

So after all, some movie studios aren't waiting for UHD Blu-ray to release some Dolby Atmos Blu-ray titles. ...Sony is now joining Lionsgate Films, Paramount, Warner Bros and Universal studios with few Atmos titles before UHD comes to town.

It's going to be fun and interesting to compare those few 4K-Remastered flicks on Blu-ray 2K (1080p: 1920x1080) with the real UHD 4K flicks on UHD Blu-ray discs (2160p: 4096x2160)...eventually.

My first reaction to The Fifth Element being remixed into Dolby Atmos was very positive but in hindsight I overlooked a horrible consequence of this situation.

Ruby Rhod. In immersive audio, that obnoxious shrill voice not only surrounding the listener but onslaughting the senses from above as well. Truly disturbing times we live in.

There are several other titles I would look Sony to give this treatment to such as: Hellboy, Starship Troopers, Underworld, and Krull!!!

Hopefully both TFE and Leon look and sound fantastic.

Best regards,
KvE

Not going to lie, I picked up the Fifth Element on BD (first time) a few weeks ago, and I am going to get this version as well!

Not gonna do it this time! I ended up replacing most of the DVD's (of movies I like) I had with Blu-rays. It was worth it for Blu-Ray in most cases. I cant see any movie over say 5 years old being any better in UHD, eve with a 10 foot wide screen to view it. I'll end up keeping all my blu-ray movies and buying new ones on UHD.

On that note, most of my DVD's that I bought 15+ years ago have degraded to the point that I cant watch the movie any longer, they just skip. This is media degradation, these DVD'd at most have only been watched a handful of times and kept in protected environments with no scratch's and blemishes. I sure hope on of the selling points of blu-ray help out here (protective layers).
