De Palma's The Untouchables comes to 4K UHD & Blu-ray SteelBook in June

17 May 2022

Directed by Brian De Palma and nominated for four Academy Awards, the acclaimed drama The Untouchables makes its 4K Ultra HD debut on 6 June, 2022 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The Untouchables 4K UHD and Blu-ray Special Collector’s Edition SteelBook includes the 4K Ultra HD feature film, Blu-ray, poster, 6 art cards and 2 business cards.

Originally released on 3 June 1987, The Untouchables celebrates its 35th anniversary this year and remains one of the decade's most fondly regarded works, featuring visionary filmmaking and exceptional performances from an outstanding cast. Robert De Niro as mob warlord Al Capone and Kevin Costner as law enforcer Eliot Ness are unforgettable in a fierce, larger-than-life depiction of good versus evil on the streets of Prohibition-era Chicago.

Sean Connery won his only Oscar for his portrayal of veteran officer Jimmy Malone in the blockbuster hit that was the fourth highest grossing film of 1987. Written by David Mamet, The Untouchables also boasts a Grammy Award-winning score by the legendary Ennio Morricone and an excellent supporting cast including Patricia Clarkson, Andy Garcia, and Charles Martin Smith.
