4K Ultra HD of the month

4K June 2022 - The Untouchables

4K June 2022 - The Untouchables

The Untouchables
Release date: June 15

There’s something very appealing about mob flicks, and we’ve been lucky enough to have had some classics over the past few decades, such as The Godfather trilogy, Goodfellas and Miller’s Crossing.

Any serious list of top mob movies should also feature 1987’s The Untouchables and now, as it celebrates its 35th anniversary, it’s arriving in style on 4K Ultra HD.

With a seriously big name cast up front – Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Andy Garcia, Charles Martin Smith and Robert De Niro as Al Capone – it’s enough to get bums on seats, but add director Brian De Palma and writer David Mamet to the mix and it hits must-see territory.

The Untouchables is based on the 1957 memoir of the same name by Eliot Ness, the fed played by Costner, but does take many liberties with the truth. It’s still a top watch, however, kicking off in 1930, it documents the rise and fall of infamous Chicago mobster Al Capone, who was making a killing in more ways than as he cashed in on Prohibition, and how he was eventually brought down by the FBI.

The Untouchables arrives on 4K Ultra HD this month toting a brand new, native 4K restoration that’s also been given the full Dolby Vision treatment in the HDR department.

Audio-wise, a new Dolby Atmos track has been created especially for this release, promising us not only more atmosphere, but the chance to take in Ennio Morricone’s stunning soundtrack in more glory than ever before.

Fans of special features will find the same collection that appeared on the DVD and standard Blu-ray release of The Untouchables, which amounts to around an hour of featurettes as well as the original theatrical trailer.
