Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release writer/director Kimberly Peirce's Stop-Loss on Blu-ray as part of its 600-title distribution deal with Paramount. The wartime drama stars Ryan Phillippe, Abbie Cornish, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum, and streets on February 4, 2014.
Synopsis: Decorated Iraq war hero Sgt. Brandon King (Phillippe) makes a celebrated return to his small Texas hometown following his tour of duty. He tries to resume the life he left behind with the help and support of his family and his best friend, Steve Shriver (Tatum), who served with him in Iraq. Along with their other war buddies, Brandon and Steve try to make peace with civilian life. Then, against Brandon's will, the Army orders him back to duty in Iraq, which upends his world. The conflict tests everything he believes in: the bond of family, the loyalty of friendship, the limits of love and the value of honor.
Warner has yet to detail technical specifications and special features.
Good movie, but how about kicking things off with King Kong 1976 & Prophecy 1979? How about The Brady Bunch movies, Addams Family movies? War of the Worlds 1953 & When Worlds Collide? Samson & Delilah 1949? I Married A Monster From Outer Space? The Big Bus? Orca? Dragonslayer? Silver Bullet?
You know, titles to get the blu-ray crowd EXCITED????
Oh, and BTW, I like this much better than Sony giving Twilight Time release rights.
Have none of these actors ever met a person from Texas. All the accents in this preview are all wrong.
Also, the opinions and attitudes expressed by Ryan's character is an extreme minority within our armed forces. I hope this movie is not trying to paint a picture that this is how our military men and women think. I will have to watch and see.
I know that my comment here will probably receive more negative votes than positive but I couldn't watch this preview without saying something. Hopefully, after watching, I am proved wrong.
@JMDiaz: Probably because this one co-stars Joseph Gordon Levitt and Channing Tatum, and isn't but a few years old, so it was probably a pretty safe bet using the existing master. Remember, Hollywood thinks the "stars" sell the movies more than the stories and other production aspects.
Yes Paramount/Warner Bros..... We crave a double feature of Addams Family with extras!!! Commentaries, deleted scenes, featurettes, making of documentaries, trailers, tv spots, even isolated scores (Marc Shaiman's scores are awesome and deserve a lossless track on its own!) would be awesome. Sure... even throw in the film with Tim Curry as Gomez. Come on Warner!!!!
@ cornbread- Yup, that excites me waaaaaay more than just Stop Loss. And why not all the features you listed? Supposedly, it was why Blu-Ray was being pushed so heavily to begin with, was it not? EXCELLENT picture/audio, TONS of extra features. Now a days we don't even get a chapter list insert or trailer in some cases.
Not to mention the Addams Family movies were pretty big money makers for Paramount.
But I'm sure you are pretty much ok with mediocre releases.
