Press Release from Summit Entertainment
Summit Entertainment is proud to announce the January 12, 2010 DVD release of The Hurt Locker, an intense war film filled with non-stop, groundbreaking realistic action. Come this January The Hurt Locker will be ideally placed to take advantage of the years best selling month for action films and will continue to thrive into awards season as a leading contender for a number of Golden Globes and Academy Awards. Director Kathryn Bigelow created this gripping film starring Jeremy Renner (Dahmer, The Assassination of Jesse James), Anthony Mackie (Half Nelson, We Are Marshall) and Brian Geraghty (We Are Marshall, Jarhead), with cameo appearances by Ralph Fiennes (The Reader), David Morse (“John Adams”), Evangeline Lilly (“Lost”) and Guy Pearce (Memento). The Hurt Locker is produced by Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal, Greg Shapiro and Nicolas Chartier. The screenplay is written by Mark Boal (In the Valley of Elah, story).
The Hurt Locker is an "adrenaline soaked tour-de force of suspense and surprise", (New York Times) that "redefines war film electricity" (Baltimore Sun) and transports audiences to the dizzying 24/hour turmoil of an elite bomb squad struggling to survive Baghdad's urban combat zone. A powerful, nerve-shredding, and "spellbinding film" (Chicago Sun Times), The Hurt Locker, directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal, stars Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Ralph Fiennes and Guy Pearce in "an instant classic" (Wall Street Journal) "that takes on the dimensions of a mediation on war and human nature." Audiences and critics across the nation are praising this epic as one of the most remarkable war movies ever made. The Hurt Locker is "about Iraq in the way that Full Metal Jacket is about Vietnam, and Paths of Glory is about World War II. It is a great movie, period." (Washington Post).
