Posted Wed Jun 20, 2012 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The action-thriller from director Gareth Evans will assault Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony says 'The Raid: Redemption' will hit Blu-ray on August 14.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, they find themselves stranded on the 6th floor with no way out. The unit must fight their way through the city's worst criminals to survive their mission.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include Commentary with writer/director Gareth Evans, Video blogs, 5 Behind-the-scenes featurettes, An Evening with Gareth Evans, Mike Shinoda, Joe Trapanese conversation, In Conversation with Gareth Evans and Mike Shinoda, Claycat's The Raid, and The Raid TV show ad (circa 1994), and an Ultraviolet Digital Copy.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
