Paramount Home Entertainment has just added The Island to their release line-up, scheduling the movie for release on Blu-Ray Disc in June.
Blockbuster action director Michael Bay delivers a striking look at a strange world of the future in this sci-fi action drama. Midway through the 21st century, Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) lives in a confined indoor community after ongoing abuse of the Earth has rendered most of the planet uninhabitable. One of the only places in the outside world still capable of sustaining life is an idyllic island where citizens are chosen to live through a lottery. Or at least that’s what Lincoln and his fellow citizens are taught to believe; the truth is that Lincoln, like everyone he knows, is actually a clone who is kept under wraps to provide needed organs when the person who supplied his or her DNA falls ill. When he becomes aware that his existence is a fraud, Lincoln escapes to the outside world with a fellow clone, Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson), though the powers that be are determined to see that no one gets away alive.
Arriving with a 1080p high definition transfer and DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio, the release will also feature a Commentary Track by director Michael Bay, as well as the Featurettes ”The Future In Action,” “The Making of The Island” and ”Pre-visualization: Forward Thinking”.
You can take a high definition trip to “The Island” on June 21 for $24.99.
