Arnie action comedy “Last Action Hero” is getting a pair of Zavvi exclusive 4K Steelbook editions in May
The summer of 1993 was all about the box office smackdown between Last Action Hero, the high concept, mega budget action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jurassic Park, the cutting edge VFX dinosaur extravaganza from blockbuster meastro Steven Spielberg. We all know how that turned out…
Though the final execution may have been botched, the concept of Last Action Hero is a solid one, and there’s still plenty to like – it’s certainly better than the reviews and box office returns suggest.
On May 31st you’ll be able able to pick up this new 4K steelbook release, which will be available in two editions – a standard release, and goodies-packed Collectors Edition.
Pre-orders are live now for Red Carpet subscribers, and around 6pm for everyone else, so ignore any ‘sold out’ notices until then.

oung Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien) is a lonely 11-year-old boy who escapes from his bleak reality by watching the action-adventure movies of his favourite film character, Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger). When his best friend, Nick the projectionist, gives him a special ticket to the new Slater film, Danny is magically transported into Jack’s world, where the good guys always win.
Danny becomes his helper as Jack battles a trio of nefarious bad guys, Benedict (Charles Dance), Vivaldi (Anthony Quinn) and The Ripper (Tom Noonan). But things get out of hand when Benedict steals Danny’s magic ticket stub and transports himself into the real world, where crime can, and often does, pay. Jack and Danny must leave fictional Los Angeles for real-life New York and battle the villains without the aid of movie magic or stuntmen.
