Paramount Home Media is releasing John McTiernan’s The Hunt for Red October (1990) on a 4K Blu-ray steelbook. Stars Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin.
On March 2, 1990, moviegoers were first introduced to Tom Clancy’s legendary CIA analyst Jack Ryan when the thrilling and suspense-filled The Hunt for the Red October debuted in theaters. Now fans can relive every tension-laden moment with a special 30th anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition 4K Blu-ray/Blu-ray Combo Steelbook, from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Based on Tom Clancy’s bestseller, directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard), and starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin, The Hunt for the Red October seethes with high-tech excitement and sweats with the tension of men who hold Doomsday in their hands.
A new technologically-superior Soviet nuclear sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command of Captain Marko Ramius (Connery). The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack.
A lone CIA analyst named Jack Ryan (Baldwin) has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has only a few hours to find him and prove it because the entire Russian naval and air commands are trying to find him, too. The hunt is on!
