'The Odd Angry Shot' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jun 14, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 1979 Australian war classic is aiming for Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films has scheduled 'The Odd Angry Shot' for a Blu-ray release on August 13.

Harry (Graham Kennedy), a hard-edged Special Air Service Corporal, meets a new company of soldiers during his second tour in Vietnam. There's the naïve Bill (John Jarratt), the easy-going Bung (John Hargreaves), the blunt Rogers (Bryan Brown), the pragmatic Dawson (Graeme Blundell), and the youthful and innocent Scott (Ian Gilmour). Because of their training as professional soldiers from Australia's toughest Army unit, these men believe they can deal with any situation. They pass the time playing practical jokes, getting into drunken brawls and humoring themselves to keep their minds off the war. But, when the first "odd angry shot" rings out, and an enemy mortar barrage hits their camp causing many casualties, the men realize their protective shield of humor is no defense at all against the harsh realities of armed combat.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary Featuring Producer/Director Tom Jeffrey, Producer Sue Milliken and Actor Graeme Blundell; "Stunts Down Under" with Buddy Joe Hooker - Featurette; Original Theatrical Trailer; and Reversible Cover Art.

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