The ground-breaking film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon from director Ang Lee will be released to Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray (Mastered from 4k) on October 18, 2016. The enhanced editions were created from a newly mastered 4k version of the film and will include new special features such as 6 never-before-seen deleted scenes, a retrospective with Lee, documentary “The Making of Crouching Tiger. Hidden Dragon,” and “A Love Before Time” music videos.
The new Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray editions celebrate 15 years since its nationwide opening in January, 2001, although the film was officially released in Japan and other countries in 2000.
In Mandarin, the soundtrack will be offered in Dolby’s immersive Atmos format that’s backwards-compatible with Dolby TrueHD 7.1 for systems that don’t support it. In English, audio is provided in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and in French Dolby Digital 5.1.
Digital copies of the film will be available with both editions through UltraViolet partners.
In Crouching Tiger. Hidden Dragon, Yun-Fat Chow stars as Master Li Mu Bai and Michelle Yeoh as Yu Shu Lien — two warriors who embark on a mission to find the stolen Green Destiny sword.
