'The Wild Geese' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Oct 29, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The 1978 action/adventure is coming to Blu-ray in December!

In an early announcement to retailers, Severin will be bringing the classic film 'The Wild Geese' to Blu-ray on December 11.

Screen legends Richard Burton, Roger Moore, and Richard Harris star as a team of aging mercenaries hired by a wealthy industrialist for one final mission: Recruit and train a squad of desperate commandos, parachute into an unstable African nation, snatch its deposed President from a maximum security army prison, escape via the military-controlled airport, and massacre anyone who gets in their way. Getting to the target will be murder. But when the group is double-crossed, getting out alive may be impossible. Hardy Kruger ('A Bridge Too Far'), Frank Finlay ('The Three Musketeers'), Barry Foster ('Frenzy') and Stewart Granger ('King Solomon's Mines') co-star in this blood & guts action classic, now packed with all-new bonus features and fully re-mastered in explosive HD for the first time ever in America!

MgLaghlen (16 mins); The Mercenary - Exclusive new video interview with military advisor Mike Hoare (10 mins); The Last of the Gentleman Producers - Documentary on Producer Euan Lloyd featuring Lloyd, Roger Moore, Joan Armatrading, Ingrid Pitt, and more (33 mins); Audio Commentary With Producer Euan Lloyd, Star Roger Moore, Second Unit Director John Glen, Moderated by Filmmaker Jonathan Sothcott; The Flight Of The Wild Geese - Vintage Featurette; The Wild Geese Royal Charity Premiere Newsreel (7 mins); and theatrical trailer.
