'Solomon Kane' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon May 20, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Michael J. Bassett's 2009 action-adventure will be heading to Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Solomon Kane' for Blu-ray on July 16.

Captain Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane's men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Deleted Scene; Gallery Images; Interviews with Michael Bassett and James Purefoy; and Making of Solomon Kane.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
