A new hi-definition trailer for "Highlander" has been released ahead of the upcoming 4K restoration of the film.
In commemoration of the cult-classic's 30th anniversary, the conversion is due to hit select theaters in North America, and is set for a release on Blu-ray in the U.K. The Blu-ray will include a new interview with director Russell Mulcahy and Christopher Lambert, in addition to a four-part making-of documentary, deleted scenes, the original trailer and the director’s commentary from previous releases.
IGN debuted the trailer, which fittingly includes Queen's "Princes of the Universe."
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).
Directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Christopher Lambert ("Mortal Kombat"), Sean Connery ("The Hunt for Red October"), Clancy Brown ("The Shawshank Redemption") Roxanne Hart, Jon Polito, Sheila Gish and Celia Imrie, the "Highlander" 4K restoration makes its world premiere on Saturday June 18th at the Edinburgh Film Festival, before coming to Blu-ray on July 11 in the U.K. No release date has been set for the "Highlander" 4K Blu-ray in the U.S.
