We do love our cult classics, and we know they might not always be the critical acclaimed films. One of those films that has deservedly earned it’s cult status is Escape From L.A., John Carpenter’s high-octane thrill-ride, that sees Snake Plissken in glorious  4K Ultra HD™ for the first time ever, courtesy of Paramount  Home Entertainment.

Released in 1996, John Carpenter’s Escape From L.A. was the highly anticipated follow up to the fan-favourite hit Escape from New York. Kurt Russell returns as anti-hero Snake Plissken, who is called upon to save the world from a doomsday device after a 9.6 quake levels most of Los Angeles.

Experience every outrageous and eye-popping moment of the post-apocalyptic classic in stunning 4K Ultra HD™, including Snake surfing Wilshire Blvd., shooting hoops at the Coliseum, and dive bombing the Happy Kingdom theme park. The film also features a wild assortment of friends, fiends and foes from a supporting cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Peter Fonda, Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, Cliff Robertson and Bruce Campbell.

The 4K Ultra HD™ + Blu-ray Limited Edition set includes 2 stickers, 5 art cards and a double-sided poster.

In addition to the 4K Ultra HD™ + Blu-rayLimited Edition set, Paramount Home Entertainment will be releasing a 4K UHD™ on 21st February. Both 4K Ultra HD™ releases feature exceptional picture quality with Dolby Vision and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
