'Killer Elite' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Nov 10, 2011 at 10:00 AM PST by

The action-packed thrill-ride will shoot up Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Killer Elite' will have a Blu-ray release on January 10.

Based on a shocking true story, 'Killer Elite' is a gritty battle between guns-for-hire that has been hailed as “one of the best action thrillers of the year!” by Richard Roeper, ReelzChannel. Pitting two of the world’s most elite operatives against the cunning leader of a secret military society, Killer Elite stars Jason Statham ('The Transporter,' 'Death Race'), Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro ('The Godfather Part II,' 'Raging Bull') and Academy Award®-nominee Clive Owen ('Children of Men,' 'Closer').

Featuring unstoppable action and a tremendous cast – including Dominic Purcell (“Prison Break,” 'Straw Dogs'), Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Lost,” “Oz”), Aden Young ('Sniper,' "The Starter Wife”) and Ben Mendelsohn ('Trespass,' 'Knowing') – 'Killer Elite' is “a classic action thriller that will keep you guessing till the last scene.” (Patrick Carone, MAXIM).

The Blu-ray/DVD/UV digital copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include deleted/extended scenes, My Scenes, and Pocket BLU.

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