In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted & Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation, outlaws & become a hero.
The most expensive film ever made at the time of its release,Waterworldhas thrilled audiences through the years with its awe-inspiring action scenes, gargantuan maritime sets and ground-breaking special effects.
A definitive post-apocalypse blockbuster,Waterworld stars Kevin Costner (The Untouchables) as The Mariner - a mutant trader, adrift in a dystopian future where Earth is submerged under water and humankind struggles to survive on boats and in ramshackle floating cities. The Mariner becomes embroiled with the Smokers, a gang of pirates who, led by villainous leader Deacon (Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet), are seeking Enola (Tina Majorino, Napoleon Dynamite), a girl with a map to the mythical realm of Dryland tattooed on her back.
Famous for both its epic scale and the controversy that swirled around its production,Waterworldis a key cult film of the 1990s, and an essential entry into the subgenre of ecologically-minded blockbusters. Presented here in an exclusive restoration of the theatrical cut in 4K Ultra HD, alongside a Blu-ray presentation of the Ulysses cut, and with a wealth of extra material, this high-water mark of high-concept Hollywood can now be enjoyed as never before.
