After a dismal theatrical run, MGM Home Entertainment is now releasing the 2002 remake of Rollerball on DVD in June.
Directed by John McTiernan, “Rollerball” is the story of Jonathan Cross, the newest recruit in the most extreme sport of all time – Rollerball – where his fast moves and killer looks make him an instant superstar. But Cross’ life in the fast lane collides with reality when he learns that the league’s owner is orchestrating serious accidents in order to boost the ratings. Now Cross and his teammates plan to take down the owner and his ruthless sport before the game puts an end to them!
The DVD will feature a fullscreen and anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film with a 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track. The release will also contain an Audio Commentary featuring the film’s stars Chris Klein, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and LL Cool J. A Featurette entitled “The Stunts Of rollerball” will also be part of the release, and so will an Interactive Yearbook starring player bios, as well as a Team Roster a Rob Zombie Music Video and bonus trailers.
The Special Edition of “Rollerball” will be available in stores on June 18 and carry a suggested retail price of $26.98! You can buy this disc at the DVD Review Store for only $18.89!
