In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says Killer Elite will have a Blu-ray release January 10th.
Based on a true story, the film stars Jason Statham as a mercenary who wants to go straight but must first do a job so that his mentor, Hunter (Robert De Niro), will be released from captivity. Clive Owen also stars as Spike Logan, an enforcer to a secret society known as the “Feathermen.” It is up to him to track down the gun-for-hire before Statham can complete his mission.
Featuring unstoppable action and a tremendous cast – including Dominic Purcell (TV’s Prison Break, Straw Dogs), Yvonne Strahovski (TV’s Chuck) and Ben Mendelsohn (Trespass) – Killer Elite is “a classic action thriller that will keep you guessing till the last scene.” (Patrick Carone, MAXIM).
The Blu-ray/DVD/UV digital copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include deleted/extended scenes, My Scenes, and Pocket BLU.
The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still to be determined.
