THE FIFTH ELEMENT
Luc Besson’s 1997 sci-fi masterpiece has been fully restored. Experience this cult classic in stunning 4K when THE FIFTH ELEMENT releases on 4K Ultra HD and digital download for the very first time, and on Blu-Ray™ and DVD on 24th August.

New York, the twenty-third century. The Earth is about to be destroyed by a huge ball of fire racing toward the planet. Cornelius, an old monk, knows how to stop the burning sphere: the Fifth Supreme Being, who unites the four basic Elements – air, water, fire and earth – must be summoned for it is the only being who can stop Evil.

Cornelius, with help from Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) a taxi driver and former secret agent, and Leeloo (Milla Jovovich) an alien in the shape of a beautiful, orange haired woman, set off on a myriad of adventures in an attempt to save humanity and fight the horrendous Zorg (Gary Oldman).

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 126 mins approx.

 

 

THE MESSENGER: JOAN OF ARC
Tormented by visions, young Joan (Milla Jovovich) leaves her country home, seeks out the heir to the French throne, and tells him that God has charged her with the task of freeing France from the English. Granted an army, Joan fulfils her promise, but is later betrayed and tried as a witch. Director Luc Besson combines the vivid clarity of Jacques Rivette’s earlier ‘Jeanne La Pucelle’ with a fast-moving storyline and comes up with one of the boldest versions of the Joan of Arc legend yet produced.

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 157 mins approx.
