Braveheart and Gladiator Limited Edition 4K Blu-ray Steelbooks to Release in May

Are you not entertained?!

Two of the greatest films to ever grace the big screen, Braveheart and Gladiator, will finally be viewed like never-before this May. In celebration of their anniversaries, Paramount Pictures is planning to release Limited Edition 4K Blu-ray Steelbooks for each film.

The Limited Edition 4K Blu-ray Steelbooks for each Best Picture Academy Award winner will release on May 5, 2020. Pictured above is the Gladiator set and pictured below is the Braveheart set. For more information on everything they’ll feature, see the full PR below.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020, BRAVEHEART won five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture.  The richly detailed saga of power, passion, and the fight for freedom stars Mel Gibson (who also took home the Oscar® for Best Director) as William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who rallies his countrymen to liberation from oppressive English rule.  The 4K Steelbook includes access to a digital copy of the film and previously released commentary by Mel Gibson on both the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray presentations, along with more than two hours of previously released bonus content, including interactive timelines, a making-of documentary, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, and more.

Originally released on May 5, 2000, director Ridley Scott’s GLADIATOR celebrates its 20th anniversary.  Also a winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, the film is an unparalleled combination of vivid action and extraordinary storytelling.  Russell Crowe won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of a Roman general who is betrayed by a corrupt prince (Joaquin Phoenix) and comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge.  The 4K Steelbook includes access to a digital copy of the film and both theatrical and extended versions of the feature on 4K Ultra HD, along with two separate commentaries.  The two Blu-ray Discs included in the set boast over four hours of previously released bonus content, including commentaries on both versions of the film, a comprehensive documentary about the making of the movie, featurettes, deleted scenes, and more.
