OFFICIAL: ‘80s sci-fi military adventure “The Final Countdown” lands on 4K - 4/27

Updated: Mar 27, 2021


BLUE UNDERGROUND provides the official information for the April 27th landing of “The Final Countdown” on 4K Ultra HD. The Exclusive Limited Collector’s Edition set will include a 4K disc, Blu-ray, Soundtrack CD, Collectible Booklet, and 3D Lenticular Slipcover (First Pressing Only).

The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America’s mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship’s Captain (Kirk Douglas), a Defense Department expert (Martin Sheen), a maverick Air Wing Commander (James Farentino) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning) must choose between the unthinkable. Do they allow the Japanese to complete their murderous invasion, or launch a massive counterstrike that will forever change the course of history?

Katharine Ross and Ron O’Neal co-star in this spellbinding sci-fi action hit filmed on location aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz with the full participation of the U.S. Navy and the ship’s crew.



Aspect ratio 2.35:1 sourced from a new 4K 16-bit scan of the original camera negative. HDR toning will include HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
