'Welcome to the Punch' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Apr 15, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The cat-and-mouse thriller from Producer Ridley Scott is hitting Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI Home Video is preparing 'Welcome to the Punch' for Blu-ray on July 23.

The second feature from acclaimed British music video director and filmmaker Eran Creevy, 'Welcome to the Punch' is the story of two arch-nemeses: detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy) and master criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong). When Sternwood escaped three years ago after a daring robbery, Max was left emotionally and physically scarred. But after Sternwood’s son turns up in a hospital due to a failed heist, he’s forced to return to London – giving Max his second chance to get the one criminal who got away. Yet as Max delves deeper into the case he uncovers a vast conspiracy. Featuring rising star Andrea Riseborough ('Shadow Dancer') and Peter Mullan ('War Horse'), the film was shot in the gleaming streets of London’s rejuvenated East End and the banking center of Canary Wharf. Executive produced by Ridley Scott, 'Welcome to the Punch' is a sleek modern thriller.

Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price have not been revealed yet.
