"GIMME BACK MY SON!!!" Ron Howard's 1996 thriller will hold Blu-ray hostage in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista is working on 'Ransom: 15th Anniversary Edition' for a Blu-ray release on June 5.
Commemorate the 15th anniversary of 'Ransom' – a critically acclaimed smash hit starring Academy Award® winner Mel Gibson (Best Director, 1995, 'Braveheart') and directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard (Best Director, 2001, 'A Beautiful Mind') – on Blu-ray for the first time with an incredible new digital restoration! Tom Mullen (Gibson) is a wealthy executive whose life is suddenly shattered when a gang of ruthless criminals abducts his young son and holds him for ransom. But it’s the kidnappers who are shocked when Mullen boldly turns the tables in a last-ditch effort to rescue his boy. Rene Russo ('Thor') and Gary Sinise ('Forrest Gump') join an excellent cast in a brilliant thriller that pays off with non-stop excitement!
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $20.00.
