Erik Skjoldbjærg's gripping drama starring Wes Bentley and Stephen Lang is headed for Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia is preparing 'Pioneer' for Blu-ray on March 16.
Set in the early 80's, during the beginning of the Norwegian Oil Boom, Pioneer opens as enormous oil and gas deposits are discovered in the North Sea. Soon the authorities aim to bring the oil ashore through a pipeline from depths of 500 meters. A professional diver, Petter (Hennie), obsessed with reaching the bottom of the Norwegian Sea has the discipline, strength and courage to take on the world's most dangerous mission. But a sudden, tragic accident changes everything. Petter is sent on a perilous journey where he loses sight of who's pulling the strings. Gradually he realizes that he is in way over his head and that his life is at stake.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
