It's hard to believe, but Luc Besson's beloved film The Fifth Element just celebrated its 27th anniversary earlier this month. The wacky sci-fi adventure remains a pillar of the genre thanks to its uniquely weird vision of the future and standout performances by Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, Bruce Willis, Chris Tucker, and Ian Holm. If you're looking to revisit the movie, a new limited reprinting of The Fifth Element 4K steelbook edition with special hand-drawn box art will be on sale for just $30 (was $46) during Memorial Day Weekend. This is the perfect chance to add the movie to your 4K Blu-ray collection--but if you don't need the slick box art, other editions of The Fifth Element are even cheaper.

If you're a sci-fi fan but haven't seen The Fifth Element, you owe it to yourself to pick up one of these Blu-ray editions while they're on sale. The story follows a far-future taxi driver, Korben Dallas (Willis), who becomes the unwitting guardian of a strange young woman (Jovovich) on the run from crazed scientists, violent aliens, and worse. The film draws heavy inspiration from the expressive French sci-fi comics of the 1980s, even tapping the late Jean "Moebius" Giraud and Jean-Claude Mézières--two of the most prolific French comic creators of all time--for production design and concept art. The film oozes charm and style that few other films have ever replicated. Even Besson's later works like Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which crib from similar stylistic and thematic inspirations, didn't quite recapture the magic of The Fifth Element.
