THE MASK OF ZORRO Debuts On 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray May 5th!

Here comes a nice surprise from Sony today! The classic swashbuckling superhero film The Mask of Zorro which starred Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and introduced most everyone to Catherine Zeta-Jones is getting a handsome 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray upgrade coming on May 5th. This is one of the best efforts coming in the wake of Tim Burton’s Batman nine years later and at the end of that run right before X-Men would change the game. I personally saw this one a few times in the theater as it absolutely delivered and saved the day as the best big budget blockbuster film of the summer of 1998. A summer that had a lot of largely hyped films that turned into big disappointments. Sony is giving this one a blistering new 4K transfer from the original negative, an Atmos track and new deleted scenes to make the release fully worthwhile. See the details for yourself below.

But can even their combined skills, bravado and derring-do be enough to achieve de la Vega’s ultimate goal: revenge against the man who killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter and held him prisoner for twenty years?
