'Quigley Down Under' Blu-ray Goes Non-Exclusive

Posted Mon Oct 31, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The Wal-Mart exclusive rights end on this story about a man who doesn't like to be called "Roy" in November.

As previously reported, MGM's 'Quigley Down Under' hit Blu-ray exclusively at Wal-Mart on May 24, and now the title will be available in other stores on November 1.

Tom Selleck gives the boldest performance of his career in this "new style, revisionist Western with the panoramic scope of a movie epic" (Los Angeles Times). Fierce gunfights, forbidding landscapes, breakneck chases - all hallmarks of the classic Western - are reinvented in this hard-pounding actioner that "revitalizes the genre" and comes out "a sure winner" (The Hollywood Reporter).

Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when he realizes, instead, that his mission is murder - to "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattle baron's land - Quigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted. Forced to wage a savage war against his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighter - no one, that is, except the mysterious beauty (Laura San Giacomo, sex, lies, and videotape) who rides by his side and captures his heart.

The Blu-ray features 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include a featurette and the original theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price is $19.99.
