Lionsgate Home Entertainment has added a Blu-Ray version of Johnny Handsome to their schedule, releasing the film in July.
Mickey Rourke is John Sedley, a petty gangster whose facial deformities earned him the nickname “Johnny Handsome.” When Johnny and a friend are double-crossed during a robbery by two partners, his friend is killed and Johnny is sent to prison.

But his new look does open one door for Johnny – revenge. An electrifying tale from the director of 48 Hrs, this thrilling crime drama features superb performances from Rourke and costars Ellen Barkin, Elizabeth McGovern, Morgan Freeman, Lance Henriksen and Forest Whitaker.
