Léon will be available for purchase on February 3rd.
Official synopsis: Jean Reno (Mission Impossible, Ronin), Gary Oldman (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, The Dark Knight Rises) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan, V for Vendetta) in her film debut, all star in this highly influential, seminal ’90′s action/thriller. Directed by Luc Besson (Subway, The Big Blue, Nikita, The Fifth Element), Leon is the controversial and unforgettable story of an unlikely friendship within a brutal and violent world.
Twelve-year-old Mathilda lives within the desperate confines of a squalid New York apartment block. On returning form a shopping trip, Mathilda finds that her abusive, dysfunctional family (and her younger brother) have been slaughtered by a psychotic, drug dealing police officer. In fear for her life she takes refuge with her reluctant, mysterious and solitary neighbour. His name is Leon and he’s one of the world’s deadliest assassins. And while Mathilda begins to teach him how to live, Leon begins to teach her how to kill.
A one disc Blu-ray featuring both the Director’s and Theatrical cut.

I’ve caught up with events of Natalie, including all her promotoion appearances for Thor: The Dark World!
• Public Appearances > Appearances in 2013
Natalie Portman was scared by the make-up in ‘Thor: The Dark World’.
The Oscar-winning actress found the villainous Dark Elves’ prosthetics terrifying on the sci-fi thriller set, and was especially impressed by their leader Malekith, played by British actor Christopher Eccleston.
She told France’s Fun radio station: ”They were pretty scary! Luckily you get to see the actors before their transformation. They have to be in make-up for so long.
”Christopher Eccleston would come to set at three in the morning and wouldn’t be ready to shoot until 10am. That’s like the next level of acting!”
Natalie, 32, was excited to reprise her role as astrophysicist Jane Foster in the film and is thankful for how supportive the franchise’s fans have been.
She quipped: ”You don’t really think about it when you’re making it. The cool thing is that the fans are so excited about it and come with such passion and enthusiasm.”
The ‘Black Swan’ star’s mother provided director Alan Taylor with an envelope full of childhood pictures of the actress for her role as Jane, but Natalie made sure to get ready of any bad snaps first.
Natalie said: ”I’ve hidden all of the embarrassing ones. My mom has an envelope of pictures which is the same for every movie. It’s pretty funny to see all these different characters with the same pictures of a child!”
In a Twitter Q&A to promote her new album ‘Britney Jean’ on Tuesday, Britney was asked: “If you could pick anyone to play you as a character in a movie, who would you choose? @britneyspears #AskBritneyJean (sic)” The 31-year-old star responded by suggesting the 32-year-old brunette beauty, who began her acting career over 20 years ago and, like Britney, grew up in the spotlight.
I have added posters and stills featuring Natalie from the upcoming Thor movie to our gallery.
