This autumn will see action galore, as Studiocanal releases a brand new, uncut 4K restoration of the 80s cult action thriller Lock Up (1989) on September 23– just in time for the highly anticipated return of Hollywood icon Sylvester Stallone to the big screen in Rambo: Last Blood.
LOCK UP stars bona fide Action Hero and Academy Award® nominee Sylvester Stallone (2015, Best Supporting Actor, Creed) as Frank Leone, a convict who can’t seem to escape the wrath of delightfully villainous warden Drumgoole, played by Donald Sutherland. The action that ensues is riveting from the first trade of one-liners to the final explosion. The film also introduced a young Tom Sizemore on the big screen (Saving Private Ryan, “Twin Peaks”) in his first movie role.
A limited 4K UHD Blu-ray Steelbook edition will also be available, exclusive to Zavvi.com
“This is hell and I’m going to give you a guided tour!”
With these chilling words, the warden (Donald Sutherland) welcomes Frank Leone (Sylvester Stallone) to Gateway Prison, a nightmare jail where every minute is hard time. The warden wants vengeance for the past; Leone wants only to survive the present. Their explosive battle of wills is the electrifying heart of one of Stallone’s most heroic thrillers, LOCK UP. Stallone gives a monumental performance as Leone, a convict driven to break his own cherished code by a warden who will stop at nothing to get him. Sutherland portrays the sadistic prison head in this riveting white-knuckle ride to hell and back.
For the very first time, LOCK UP will be available in 4K Ultra HD including Dolby Vision® HDR, a stunning format offering four times the resolution of full HD to bring entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker.
