Cult Classic Nikita Finally Gets 4K Release

Experience the gripping intensity of Luc Besson’s action thriller classic NIKITA, available for the first time in stunning 4K, in this definitive and strictly limited edition 3-disc SteelBook.

STUDIOCANAL and GAUMONT announce a superb brand-new restoration, supervised by Luc Besson himself, of the must-see classic thriller about a vicious street punk turned sexy, sophisticated and lethally dangerous assassin. Starring Anne Parillaud (Innocent Blood), Jeanne Moreau (BAFTA-winner for Viva Maria!) and Jean Reno (star of Besson’s Leon), the beautifully designed collectable 4K SteelBook also includes a Blu-ray, as well as a whole disc of new bonus material and interviews.

Written and directed by Besson (The Fifth Element), and produced by Gaumont, the film was a smash hit that spawned an American remake, a TV series, not to mention numerous imitations, and turned Parillaud (who won the César Award for Best Actress) into an iconic cult action heroine. With a mesmerising score by longtime Besson collaborator Éric Serra (The Big Blue), and stunningly shot by Thierry Arbogast (Cannes Technical Grand Prize winner for The Fifth Element), NIKITA was described by Roger Ebert as a “smart, hard-edged, psycho-romantic thriller.” Packed with jaw-dropping set pieces and ferocious gunplay, it’s breathless, brilliant offbeat action cinema.

NIKITA is available to buy on 4K from 23rd September 2024, and available to pre-order HERE.
