'5 Days of War' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Sep 26, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Renny Harlin's latest action extravaganza will be gunning for Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on '5 Days of War' for Blu-ray on November 29.

This action-packed international thriller from acclaimed director Renny Harlin ('Die Hard 2,' 'Cliffhanger') is based on the true events of a renegade American journalist, his cameraman and a local woman caught behind enemy lines during the devastating five day war between Russian and the Georgian Republic.

From writers Mikko Alanne and David Battle, '5 Days of War' features an all-star cast including Rupert Friend ('Young Victoria,' 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'), Emmanuelle Chriqui (HBO’s “Entourage,” 'You Don’t Mess With The Zohan'), Richard Coyle ('Prince of Persia'), Andy Garcia ('City Island,' 'Oceans 12'), Val Kilmer ('Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,' 'Batman Forever'), and proves director Harlin to still be the master of the high-octane action genre.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't seem to be any supplements on this release.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
