K-19 emerges

The latest Harrison Ford film failed to grasp audiences, but perhaps the DVD will introduce the film to audiences. K-19: The Widowmaker is coming in December from Paramount Home Entertainment.

The story of USSR’s first nuclear ballistic submarine, which suffered a malfunction in its nuclear reactor on its maiden voyage in the North Atlantic in 1961. The submarine’s crew, led by the unyielding Captain Alexi Vostrikov, races against time to prevent a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster which threatens not only the lives of his crew, but has the potential to ignite a world war between the super powers.

Anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 will be there as will an audio commentary featuring director Kathryn Bigelow and cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth, three featurettes and a theatrical trailer.

December 10th is the date. $29.95 is the price.
