Probably imported disc (release date 2010), no Dolby Atmos or 4k restoration.
on 15 January 2017
Regarding the blu ray disc, it looks like this is an Australian import (search for "fifth element MMA8824BR" to find the relevant pages), with the disc origin described as being from France. Therefore, it plays on R2 players. It is not the 4k restoration disc (with Dolby Atmos) that seems to be floating around elsewhere in the wrold. The soundtrack is Dolby TrueHD. While it seems to be an older disc, the picture quality is still very good for an older Blu-ray release, and the audio is good enough. There are rumours of a UHD disc coming out later this year elsewhere in the world, but is it really worth the wait, especially given the UK release strategy? This disc is quite expensive for a Blu-ray (probably due to the import), but unless you have a multi-region player for the US import, this is the only version that I've found in the UK.
