First Look Studios is putting the final touches to a DVD and Blu-Ray Disc version of The Code, scheduling the heist movie for a June release.
While pulling a down-and-dirty jewelry heist on a subway train, Gabriel (Antonio Banderas) encounters Ripley (Morgan Freeman), a legendary thief who was casing the same job. In spite of Gabriel’s initial reluctance, Ripley manages to rope him into an impossible job: the theft of two priceless Faberge Imperial Eggs from the heavily guarded vault of a New York diamond wholesaler. The stakes rise for Gabriel and Ripley when Ripley’s goddaughter (Rhada Mitchell) is kidnapped by the KGB. Staying one step ahead of the NYPD, the FBI, the diamond merchants and the vicious Russian KGB crime boss determined to have the priceless eggs for himself, Gabriel and Ripley must find a way to pull off the heist and make it out alive. “The Code” is full of deceit, thievery and twists at every turn.
The DVD and Blu-Ray version will be presented in their widescreen aspect ratios, complete with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks. No extras will be included on the releases however.
“The Code” will come to stores on June 23 for $28.98 on DVD and $29.98 on Blu-Ray.
