Twenty years ago Luc Besson released a science fiction movie he dreamt up as a teenager, and it still has yet to be topped. The Fifth Element was one of the best movies of 1997 and now it’ll be back on the big screen for its 20th anniversary.
EW revealed today that Fathom Events will be returning The Fifth Element to theaters this May and it’ll be the new 4K restoration of the movie. As it’s a Fathom Event, that means it’ll only be in theaters two days. Sunday May 14th and Wednesday May 17th. You’ll also get a special preview of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
A 4K restoration of The Fifth Element has long been rumored, and with this Fathom Event happening in May it’s very likely we’ll be seeing a 4K UHD Blu-Ray release of the movie around the time Valerian hits theaters.
