Cliffhanger gets high def treatment

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced a Blu-Ray Disc version of the Sylvester Stallone actioner Cliffhanger for release in January.

Sarah was an inexperienced climber. She trusted Gabe to rescue her. But something went wrong high above the valley floor… Sylvester Stallone, John Lithgow, Michael Rooker, Janine Turner and Ralph Waite star in this high-altitude avalanche of action: a non-stop adventure peak with suspense and capped with heart-quaking terror. For Rocky Mountain Rescue, the mission is almost routine: locate five climbers. With the woman he loves (Turner) and his best friend (Rooker), Gabe Walker (Stallone) braves the icy peaks only to discover that the distress call is really a trap set by merciless international terrorist Eric Qualen (Lithgow). Now millions of dollars and their own lives hang in the balance. Against explosive firepower, bitter cold, and dizzying heights, Walker must outwit Qualen in a deadly game of hide-and-seek.

The release will offer up a 1080p high definition transfer with DTS 5.1 HD audio. The release will also include a good number of bonus materials, such as a selection of Deleted Scenes and a Commentary Track featuring Director Renny Harlin and Sylvester Stallone. Also included is a Technical Crew Commentary and a number of Special Effects Featurettes detailing the making of the film. Further you will find Stallone On The Edge on the release, a making-of featurette that takes you behind the scenes, as well as some Storyboard Comparisons. The disc will be rounded out by Sony’s movieIQ BD Live feature that connects you to access real-time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie!

“Cliffhanger” will be in stores on January 12 for $24.95.
