The Golden Child, staring Eddie Murphy, makes its arrival for the first time ever in Blu-ray under the Paramount Presents line.

Director Michael Ritchie supervised the 4K film transfer prior to the film’s remastered release on Blu-ray.  As is the case with every Paramount Presents editions, The Golden Child also comes with collectible packaging with a foldout image of the theatrical poster and interior photo spread featuring key scenes.  The film also includes a digital copy.  However, should you prefer, you can also bring the film home digitally on 4K Ultra HD.

One thing to note about the bonus features is that a Filmmaker Focus is not included.  This feature seems to be the standard add-on for the entire Paramount Presents line.  The film also joins three other Eddie Murphy films in being released on either Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD today.


Eddie Murphy is “the Chosen One,” a social worker on a madcap mission to find “the Golden Child,” a young boy possessing mystical powers. Joined by Kee Nang (Charlotte Lewis), they’ll battle the countless henchmen of Sardo Numspa (Charles Dance), the mysterious and evil cult leader holding the boy captive. It’s a dangerous quest, complete with obstacle courses and a mythical amulet, sharply combining Murphy’s wit with eye-popping special effects for an unforgettable adventure.
