Full Metal Jackets: For I Am Kind… of Familiar

The (non-3D) Blu-ray release of Tarsem Singh’s ‘300’-meets-‘Clash of the Titans’ action-packed epic ‘Immortals‘ will receive a SteelBook edition exclusive to Canadian Future Shop stores next month.

According to the plot synopsis: “Power-mad King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) threatens to destroy all of humanity on his maniacal quest to obtain the ultimate weapon – the legendary Epirus Bow that gives the power to unleash war on both Heaven and Earth. But Theseus (Henry Cavill), a heroic young villager chosen by the gods, rises up to stop Hyperion’s brutal rampage. With supernatural help from the beautiful oracle Phaedra (Freida Pinto), Theseus embraces his destiny and leads a fierce band of warriors in a desperate fight for the future of mankind.”

The SteelBook release comes out swinging on March 3rd. Part of me really likes the design, but I must say that it’s very disappointing that a 3D option isn’t included. Plus, the French text on the spine really ruins it. Seriously, was that really necessary?

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. Supplements will include:

  • “It’s No Myth” featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Caravaggio Meets Fight Club: Tarsem’s Vision (Blu-ray exclusive)
  • Alternate Opening and Alternate Endings (Blu-ray exclusive)
  • Immortals: Gods & Heroes Graphic Novel (Blu-ray exclusive)

Region coding is still undetermined. The SteelBook for ‘Immortals’ can be pre-ordered directly from Future Shop. It’s currently $32.99 in Canadian funds. Unfortunately, Future Shop does not ship outside of Canada.
