So say we all! The frakkin' toasters are back in an action-packed movie coming to Blu-ray this February!
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' will have a Blu-ray release on February 19.
An all-new chapter in the “Battlestar Galactica” saga, 'Blood & Chrome' takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Though Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, “Alcatraz”), the two men must set their differences aside when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordán, “Silent Witness”) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.
