Hackers

Back in the early 90’s the term “hacking” was becoming more mainstream, underscored by the first DEF CON hacking conference in 1993. Several movie studios released films with plots that included computer hacking, and one of them was MGM/United Artists’ Hackers starring Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie. Shout! Factory has released a 20th Anniversary Edition of the film on Blu-ray Disc, at 1080p resolution and 2.34:1 aspect ratio, with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack. The 1-disc edition also includes several bonus features including new interviews with cast, production, and hacking consultants. (Be sure to check out the trailer down below.) Price: $17.99
