It is without a doubt one of the best war movies ever and, now, Save Private Ryan is about to return in a brand new one limited edition 4K UHD steelbook.
Amazon Italy has opened pre-orders for the steelbook TO THIS ADDRESS, made as if it were a metal ammunition box dented with the movie poster; which reminds us of the victory of 5 Oscar statuettes in the film directed by Steven Spielberg in 1998.
On the steelbook there is also the words “Commemorative Edition for the 60th anniversary”, even if it is not clear to me what it refers to considering that the D-Day Landing in Normandy, at the center of the story, took place in 1944 (or 77 years ago) and the film is certainly not that dated. I probably missed something (maybe let me know in the comments).
The Limited Edition 4K Steelbook from Saving Private Ryan
Inside the box, which will be made available starting from the next August 26, there will be 3 Blu-ray discs, containing the 4K UHD movie, the Blu-ray movie and a bonus disc with special content.
Here it is, together with the new edition of Forrest Gump (another cult film always starring Tom Hanks):
