Speed, an Oscar winner for both Best Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, is now available for audiences to watch on 4K Ultra HD.
The 4K upgrade comes just over a month shy of the film’s 27th anniversary. Produced on a modest $30 million budget, the film eventually grossed just over $350 million dollars. Filmmaker Jan de Bont could not have asked for a better performance out of his feature directorial debut. Unfortunately, Speed 2: Cruise Control didn’t have the same success upon release in 1997. It’s one of the worst sequels of all time.
Hold on tight for a rush of pulse-pounding thrills, breathtaking stunts and unexpected romance in a film you’ll want to see again and again. Keanu Reeves stars as an L.A.P.D. SWAT team specialist who is sent to diffuse a bomb that a revenge-driven extortionist (Dennis Hopper) has planted on a city bus. But until he does, one of the passengers (Sandra Bullock) must keep the bus speeding through the streets of Los Angeles at more than 50 miles per hour – or the bomb will explode. A high-octane chase of suspense, nonstop action and surprise twists, “Speed” is a joyride sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!
