Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection, Hannah And Her Sisters, Sleeper and a remastered Terminator all coming to Blu-ray in the US…

20th Century Fox has announced new treats for US Blu-ray owners, with high-definition versions of four classic films arriving early in 2013.

Woody Allen’s Hannah And Her Sisters and Sleeper have both been given a polish, although as with DVD releases the director doesn’t believe in adding bonus features. Even so, cleaned up prints of both of these films should look amazing.

Two action heroes also get a scrub (or should that be a bed bath given their ages now?), as the Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection comes to Blu-ray and James Cameron’s The Terminator is remastered for the HD format.

Die Hard celebrates 25 years of Bruce Willis playing John McClane with a five-disc collection featuring the first four Die Hard films and an all-new bonus disc, ‘Decoding Die Hard’.

Hannah And Her Sisters and Sleeper are both released on 15 January, 2013, Die Hard follows on 29 January, 2013, while The Terminator is released on 19 February, 2013. Pre-orders for the two Woody Allen films start tomorrow, with Die Hard available to be reserved from 19 December, 2012 and The Terminator on pre-order from 9 January, 2013.

The full details of each title are below…

Hannah And Her Sisters Blu-ray

The eldest daughter of show-biz parents, Hannah (Mia Farrow) is a devoted wife, loving mother and successful actress. A loyal supporter of her two aimless sisters Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest), she’s also the emotional backbone of a family that seems to resent her stability almost as much as they depend on it. But when Hannah’s perfect world is quietly sabotaged by sibling rivalry, she finally begins to see that she’s as lost as everyone else, and in order to find herself, she’ll have to choose – between the independence her family can’t live with… and the family she can’t live without.

Sleeper Blu-ray

When cryogenically preserved Miles Monroe (Allen) is awakened 200 years after a hospital mishap, he discovers the future’s not so bright: all women are frigid, all men are impotent, and the world is ruled by an evil dictator…a disembodied nose! Pursued by the secret police and recruited by anti-government rebels with a plan to kidnap the dictator’s snout before it can be cloned, Miles falls for the beautiful – but untalented – poet Luna (Keaton). But when Miles is captured and reprogrammed by the government – to believe he’s Miss America! – it’s up to Luna to save Miles, lead the rebels, and cut off the nose…just to spite its face.
