Win Leon: The Director’s Cut on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its release, The Upcoming has teamed up with StudioCanal to offer two lucky readers a copy of Luc Besson’s hit movie Leon on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, featuring brand new cover illustrations by French artist Flore Maquin.
25 years ago audiences were spellbound by one of the most unusual coming-of-age stories in film history: Leon. The tale of the relationship between the titular hitman and little Mathilda from next door launched the film career of Academy Award winner Natalie Portman and established the French-born Luc Besson as one of Hollywood’s finest action directors.
Mathilda (Natalie Portman) is only 12 years old but is already familiar with the dark side of life: her abusive father stores drugs for corrupt police officers, and her mother neglects her. Léon (Jean Reno), who lives down the hall, tends to his houseplants and works as a hired hitman for mobster Tony. When her family is murdered by crooked DEA agent Stansfield, Mathilda joins forces with a reluctant Leon to learn his deadly trade and avenge her family’s deaths.
Also starring Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Danny Aiello (Do The Right Thing, Moonstruck), Leon is widely regarded as a genre classic and one of the best action films to come out of the nineties.
The director’s cut from 2004 adds 23 minutes to the theatrical version, with most of the added scenes taking a closer look at the central relationship between Leon and Mathilda. Don’t miss your chance to own this classic movie in stunning Ultra HD Blu-ray!
