'The Rambler' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Apr 15, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

A man will embark on a bizarre journey of redemption in this road movie wandering to Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'The Rambler' for Blu-ray on June 25.

A stranger known only as "the Rambler" (Dermot Mulroney) is just released from prison and is anxious to build a new life for himself. Coming home to a faithless girlfriend (Natasha Lyonne), he quickly realizes his old life is truly behind him. With the promise of a job and some stability from his brother, the Rambler embarks on a cross-country journey to what hopefully is a new start. Like Odysseus and other travelers on the road-to-wisdom before him, the Rambler – armed only with his cowboy hat, shades, a guitar and traveling sack -- will encounter all manner of obstacles and dangers on his road to redemption, including a scientist with a dream-recording (onto VHS!) machine, a cab driver with an unnatural love of the original Frankenstein film, "mummies" in the back of trucks and, oh -- did I mention exploding heads?

Supplements have not been revealed yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
