Highlander Finally Comes to 4K Ultra HD This December

Just in time for the holidays, the original Highlander is coming to 4K for the first time complete with a host of special features to enjoy.

It’s cheesy by today’s standards, has some elements that haven’t aged incredibly well, but I unabashedly love Highlander. As such, I’ve been eagerly awaiting its jump to 4K, and Lionsgate is giving fans this treat just in time for Christmas: December 13, 2022 to be exact.

Steelbook version available exclusively at Best Buy

The original HIGHLANDER, in electrifying 4K! When Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) is slain in battle in the Scottish Highlands, his kinsfolk don’t mourn the tragedy of his death – they mourn the seeming witchcraft that’s brought him back to life. But MacLeod can’t die, and neither can Juan Ramírez (Sean Connery), who befriends Connor and shows him what it means to be immortal. Time dissolves, the centuries pass, and Connor and his fellow immortals are drawn to New York City, where one will be awarded the Prize while the rest lose their literal heads. This is the timeless tale that launched a film and TV franchise, beloved by millions of fans worldwide. There can only be one!
