A soccer betting pool leads to blood and mayhem in this Norwegian crime flick shooting toward Blu-ray in August. Pre-order the disc here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Music Box Films is preparing 'Jackpot' for Blu-ray on August 26.
In a small Norwegian town near the Swedish border, a bloody shootout leaves eight people dead in an adult book shop. Buried alive under a large woman is bloodied and dazed Christmas tree factory supervisor Oscar (Kyrre Hellum), who must explain the scenario to a hard-boiled police inspector (Henrik Mestad). In Oscar's version of events—which involve everything from a missing corpse, a tanning bed, a wood chipper, a sex-shop blow-up doll, a nail gun, a pigsty and Monopoly money—he joins up with a trio of dangerous ex-con colleagues at the factory and wins the jackpot prize in a soccer betting pool. But when his co-workers get into a vicious battle over how to divide the money, Oscar is dragged along for a violent, gory and body-strewn ride.
Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
