Natalie Portman in The Professional Coming to Blu-ray

Luc Besson’s 1994 thriller The Professional starring a young Natalie Portman, Jean Reno and Gary Oldman is coming to Blu-ray Disc on November 17.

What is unclear at the moment is whether this cut will be the international “Leon” version or the domestic version missing a substantial amount of footage deemed too risqué for American audiences. “Leon” not being included in the title points towards the latter, unfortunately.

A handful of supplemental features have been plucked from the deluxe DVD edition; however, just as many appear to have been left off the Blu-ray version. Included on Blu-ray are:

  • 10 Year Retrospective: Cast and Crew Look Back
  • Jean Reno: The Road to Leon
  • Natalie Portman: Starting Young
  • Fact Track
