Max Payne dishes out the goods in January

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has just added the actioner Max Payne, based on the video game series of the same name, to their release line-up, scheduling the movie for release on DVD and Blu-Ray disc in January.

Max Payne (Wahlberg) is a maverick cop with little regard for rules and nothing left to lose. Hell-bent on revenge, he’s determined to track down those responsible for the brutal murder of his family, but his obsessive investigation takes him on a nightmarish journey where dark fantasy collides with stark reality. As the mystery deepens, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world…and face an unthinkable betrayal that will drive him to the edge of his own sanity.
