Speed Now Available On 4K Ultra HD

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.

Synopsis

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!
