The Danish thriller from filmmaker Tobias Lindholm will take Blu-ray hostage this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia will be releasing 'A Hijacking' on Blu-ray on October 15.

The cargo ship MV Rozen is heading for harbour when it is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. Amongst the men on board are the ship's cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbæk) and the engineer Jan (Roland Møller), who along with the rest of the seamen are taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death. With the demand for a ransom of millions of dollars a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company (Søren Malling) and the Somali pirates.

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
