"Revolver," a new thriller from director Guy Ritchie, will be released on DVD March 18th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
A sleek and edgy film about mastering the rules of the game, "Revolver" features the classic breed of fast-talking, sharp-suited gangsters one might expect to populate a Guy Ritchie film, but with a psychological twist you're probably not expecting at all. The film has an all-star cast of gangster movie icons, including Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vincent Pastore and Outkast's Andre Benjamin.
Just out of prison, Jake Green (Statham) is a hotshot gambler, but he's rarely allowed to play in any casino because he always wins. When Jake is invited to a private game with Macha (Liotta), a crime boss and local casino owner, he is expected to lose.
But Jake isn't afraid of Macha, and not only beats him in a quick game of chance, but takes every possible opportunity to insult the man. Jake leaves the game, and Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake, who ends up working for and being protected by a pair of loan sharks, Avi and Zack, who are out to take Macha down.
Bonus materials will include "The Concept," a featurette containing interviews with Ritchie and editor James Herbert; the featurette "Revolver: Making the Music" and the behind-the-scenes featurette "The Game: The Making of Revolver." Also included will be alternate opening and ending sequences, deleted scenes, a photo gallery, and audio commentary with the director.
The Suggested Retail Price will be $24.96, although most stores will be selling this for less than eighteen dollars. technical specifications have not yet been made available, but we expect this title to be resented in widescreen, with audio in English (Dolby), along with subtitles in English, French and Spanish.
