Posted Thu Jun 30, 2016 at 09:00 AM PDT by

The 1982 action flick starring Charles Bronson will get revenge on Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory says 'Death Wish II: Special Edition' will be available on Blu-ray on July 26.

Paul Kersey is no victim: He fights back – with a vengeance! Legendary tough guy Charles Bronson resumes his trademark role as the hard-as-nails urban avenger in Death Wish II.

With the murder of his wife and the revenge against her killers now behind him, Kersey begins a new life in Los Angeles. But tragedy is never far from his door, and when a group of local hoods viciously assault his daughter, they unleash a wrath unlike anything the city has ever seen. Kersey has the face of each of them branded in his memory, and he will not rest until he tracks every one of them down... and puts them all in the ground! This hard-hitting, action-packed sequel also stars Jill Ireland (Breakheart Pass), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) and Vincent Gardenia reprises his role as Detective Frank Ochoa. The film also features a rocking score by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the release will include both the Theatrical Cut and the Unrated Cut of the film and supplements include a new Audio Commentary With Author Paul Talbot (Bronson's Loose!: The Making Of The Death Wish Films); and the Theatrical Trailer.
