James Caan Classic ‘ROLLERBALL’ To Receive 4K UHD Release on November 22nd — Special Features Revealed!

It’s game on for Rollerball as the action sci-fi heads to 4K UHD for the first time in North America from Scream Factory™on November 22.

Fans of the dystopian sports thriller (and the legendary James Caan!) will be treated to a new transfer of the film from the original camera negative and can pre-order their copies on

The 1975 cult classic was directed by Norman Jewison (Jesus Christ Superstar, Moonstruck) and features a star-studded cast including James Caan (Misery), John Houseman (The Fog, Ghost Story), Maud Adams (Octopussy), John Beck (Dallas) and Moses Gunn (Shaft, Firestarter).

Official Synopsis: The year is 2018. There are no wars. There is no crime. There is only … the Game. In a world where ruthless corporations reign supreme, this vicious and barbaric “sport” is the only outlet for the pent-up anger and frustrations of the masses.

Tuned to their televisions, the people watch “Rollerball”: a brutal mutation of football, motocross, and hockey. Jonathan E. (the great James Caan, The Godfather, Thief) is the champion player – a man too talented for his own good. The Corporation has taken away the woman, Ella (Maud Adams, Octopussy) Jonathan loves but they can’t take away his soul – even if the diabolical corporate head (John Houseman, The Fog) tells him he better retire … or suffer the old-fashioned way. With its surrealistic imagery and tense action sequences, Rollerball grips you by the heart – and never lets you go!
