Nicolas Winding Refn's neo-noir Drive on 4K UHD & Blu-ray in May

19 April 2022

Fasten your seatbelt for the ride of a lifetime as the 'very brutal, very slick LA pulp thriller' (The Guardian), Drive gets the Limited Edition 4K UHD/Blu-ray treatment. Arriving on 30 May 2022, the exquisite collectable, bonus- filled box set is presented by Second Sight Films and Nicolas Winding Refn. The film will also be available Rolling Stone individually as a Standard Edition 4K or Blu-ray.

This cult classic sees Ryan Gosling as the formidable driver, in an outstanding performance that confirmed his status as a major Hollywood player, alongside another rising star early into her career, Carey Mulligan. Bryan Cranston also stars, and Christina Hendricks gives a show-stealing turn in this stylish, wild, high-octane thrill ride, that's filled with wickedly astounding action and awe-inspiring car chases that will leave you in a spin.

Hollywood stuntman and best in the business getaway driver (Gosling) has a strict professional code, but his loner lifestyle is turned upside down when he falls for his neighbour Irene (Mulligan). With her ex-con husband owing protection money, she's sucked into the dangerous criminal underworld and there's only one person that can her save her... the driver.

Drive Limited Edition comes in stunning premium packaging with new artwork by AllCity and includes a 240- page hardback book with new essays, an exclusive interview with author James Sallis, original storyboards, stills and behind-the-scenes photos; the original novel with exclusive new artwork and art cards. All versions come with new exclusive audio commentary by Nicolas Winding Refn and Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw, and a 70-minute conversation with Nicolas Winding Refn, editor Mat Newman and composer Cliff Martinez.
