Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has added The Mechanic to their release line-up, bringing the Jason Statham actioner to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in May.
Arthur Bishop is a ‘mechanic’ – an elite assassin with a strict code and unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s a job that requires professional perfection and total detachment, and Bishop is the best in the business. But when his mentor and close friend Harry is murdered, Bishop is anything but detached. His next assignment is self-imposed – he wants those responsible dead.
The DVD version will include the movie in an anamorphic widescreen presentation with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Th only extra on the disc will be a selection of Deleted Scenes.
The Blu-Ray version will offer up a 1080p high definition version of the film with DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio. Equally slim on the bonus materials as the DVD version, this disc will also include only a selection of Deleted Scenes, the Featurette “Tools of the Trade” along with Sony’s movieIQ feature.
“The Mechanic” is scheduled for release on May 17 for $28.95 on DVD and $34.95 on Blu-Ray Disc.
