Van Damme Starrer ‘Hard Target’ Getting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Edition From Kino Lorber

Kino Lorber is giving the 1993 Jean-Claude Van Damme actioner Hard Target the royal treatment, with a two-disc 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition arriving at retail on Dec. 7.

Retailer orders for the film, part of the Kino Lorber Studio Classics line, are due Nov. 9. The set will carry a suggested retail price (SRP) of $39.95.

Directed by John Woo and executive produced by Sam Raimi, the film also stars Lance Henriksen, Yancy Butler, Arnold Vosloo, Wilford Brimley and Kasi Lemmons.

Van Damme portrays Chance Boudreaux, the target of an evil mercenary (Henriksen) who recruits combat veterans for the “amusement” of his clients — bored tycoons who will pay half a million dollars to stalk and kill them. When beautiful Natasha Binder (Butler) hires Chance to search for her missing father, she gets more than she bargained for.

The new Kino Lorber Studio Classics edition of Hard Target features a new 4K restoration of the unrated international cut, from a 4K scan of the original camera negative.

Bonus content includes new interviews with director Woo, actors Henriksen and Butler, and stunt coordinator  Billy Burton. The package also comes with a new audio commentary from action film historians Brandon Bentley and Mike Leeder, a newly restored HD trailer, 5.1 Surround Sound and 2.0 lossless stereo, and English subtitles.
