Starring Academy Award winner, Nicolas Cage (1995 Best Actor, Leaving Las Vegas), National Treasure: Collector’s Edition is the blockbuster adventure from Producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy, Pearl Harbor) and Director Jon Turteltaub (Phenomenon, Disney’s The Kid) of Benjamin Gates (Nicolas Cage) in his quest to find the greatest fortune known to man.

Since boyhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates (Cage) has been obsessed with finding the legendary Knights Templar Treasure. As he tries to find and decipher ancient riddles that will lead him to it, Gates is dogged by a ruthless enemy (Bean). Now in a race against time, Gates must steal one of America’ most sacred and guarded documents, the Declaration of Independence, or let it, and a key clue to the mystery, fall into dangerous hands.
