We’ve just received details on the upcoming Special Edition DVD of The Patriot from Columbia/TriStar.
Directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Mel Gibson, “The Patriot” tells the emotionally charged story of Benjamin Martin, a reluctant hero who is swept into the American Revolution when the war reaches his farm and the British endanger what he holds most dear. He takes up arms alongside his idealistic patriot son, Gabriel, and leads a rebel American Militia into battle against a relentless and overwhelming Redcoat army. In the process, he discovers that the only way to protect his family is to fight for a young nation’s liberty. But his dark past haunts him.
Coming in at 165 minutes, the movie will enjoy a Widescreen transfer, letterboxed in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, and a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track.
Columbia has set the release date for October 24th and it will carry a suggested retail price of $27.95. You can bet we’ll have a review for you as soon as we get our hands on it…
