The Zavvi exclusive 4K Steelbook of historical epic “Gladiator” is coming back in to limited stock
Zavvi recently brought us this new 3-disc (1 x 4K, 1 x Blu-ray and 1 x Bonus Features Blu-ray) steelbook release of Gladiator, which features a new 4K scan of the movie in both the theatrical and extended cuts, and a stunning DTS:X audio (fully backward compatible with DTS:MA) soundtrack.
This release had a very limited number of copies available (from a wider European release), but Zavvi have now been able to get hold of a few additional copies, and will be re-launching this as in stock (ie it should be shipping out with a day or two) around 6PM UK time on Sunday June 24th , so ignore the ‘sold out’ button until then.
If you missed this first time round, I can personally recommend it – the steelbook is very nice, while the 4K and audio presentation is top notch.
Forced into slavery by the corrupt, incestuous heir to the throne, Roman general Maximus (Russell Crowe) becomes a gladiator. His prowess in the arena will eventually lead him to Rome, the Colosseum and a vengeful showdown with the new emperor. An Academy Award winning masterpiece, Gladiator is epic movie story-telling brought thrillingly into the 21st century by master director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien).
