As I recently posted, Channing Tatum’s comedy ‘The Dilemma‘ will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on May 3rd, and I just found out today that Chan’s Roman era drama ‘The Eagle‘ will be released a little over a month later!
Although the film, which also stars Jamie Bell and Donald Sutherland, is still making the international rounds (including a March 23rd release in the UK), US and Canadian fans will be able to buy ‘The Eagle’ on DVD and Blu-ray on June 21st, and it’s already available for pre-order on Amazon.com. In the next month or so, I’ll have more details about the extras that will be included on the DVD and Blu-ray.
If you haven’t gotten to see the film yet, here’s a synopsis…
In 140 AD, two men – master and slave – venture beyond the edge of the known world on a dangerous and obsessive quest that will push them beyond the boundaries of loyalty and betrayal, friendship and hatred, deceit and heroism…The Roman epic adventure THE EAGLE stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell and is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald. 20 years earlier, Rome’s 5,000-strong Ninth Legion, under the command of Flavius Aquila, marched north carrying their treasured golden Eagle emblem. They never returned; Legion and Eagle simply vanished into the mists. Hearing a rumor that the Eagle has been seen in a tribal temple in the far north, Flavius’ son Marcus (Tatum), determined to restore the tarnished reputation of his father, is galvanized into action. Accompanied only by his slave Esca (Bell), Marcus sets out into the vast and dangerous highlands of Scotland – to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father’s memory, and retrieve the hallowed Eagle. Along the way Marcus realizes that the mystery of his father’s disappearance may well be linked to the secret of his own slave’s identity and loyalty – a secret all the more pressing when the two come face-to-face with the warriors of the fearsome Seal Prince (Tahar Rahim).
Fans can watch clips from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews Chan did during the US and UK press tours in the CTU video playlist for ‘The Eagle’ below…
Make sure you pick up a copy of ‘The Eagle‘ when it it’s released on June 21st in the US and July 25th in the UK and as always, stay tuned to CTU for signed DVD and Blu-ray giveaways!
