Sylvester Stallone's 1993 high altitude "Die Hard on a Mountain" action-adventure epic Cliffhanger picks up a new Dolby Vision HDR grade and deluxe SteelBook packaging to celebrate its 30th Anniversary.
This has been a busy year for Stallone fans and their growing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray collections and it's going to get even busier this May. It's wild to realize Cliffhanger turns 30 years old this year!I spent days of my valuable childhood time watching this movie and desperately trying to master the impossible snowboarding sequences on the Sega CD game. Now after an already solid 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release, Sony is doing what Sony does and reissuing the film on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for a new Anniversary release complete with Dolby Vision HDR upgrade and deluxe StreelBook packaging. To sweeten the pot, it looks like they're also tossing in a bunch of new never-before-seen deleted scenes into the mix! I heard this one was heavily edited for the numerous bloody kills so I'm curious to see if those make an appearance this go around.
Not yet up for pre-order, the set should hit store shelves and online retailers May 30th, 2023. Here are all the details:
Sylvester Stallone, John Lithgow, Michael Rooker, Janine Turner and Ralph Waite star in this high-altitude avalanche of action: a non-stop adventure peak with suspense and capped with heart-quaking terror. For Rocky Mountain Rescue, the mission is almost routine: locate five climbers. With the woman he loves (Turner) and his best friend (Rooker), Gabe Walker (Stallone) braves the icy peaks only to discover that the distress call is really a trap set by merciless international terrorist Eric Qualen (Lithgow). Now millions of dollars and their own lives hang in the balance. Against explosive firepower, bitter cold, and dizzying heights, Walker must outwit Qualen in a deadly game of hide-and-seek.
