Random Media and Cinedigm are releasing the heroic Chinese-language historical drama,The Last Supper on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD later this month.
Witness a young peasant’s meteoric rise to power in this action-packed martial arts saga from renowned director Lu Chuan. During the tumultuous last days of the Qin dynasty, the Commander of the era’s most powerful army recognizes great potential in an inexperienced laborer named Liu. When he gives Liu command of thousands of officers, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that will put his own life in peril and determine the fate of a nation.
“The Last Supper” follows Liu Bang (Ye Liu), the first emperor of China’s Han Dynasty, as he recounts his life on his deathbed through restless memories and flashbacks. Haunted by nightmares of his biggest enemies, Lord Yu (Daniel Wu) and General Xin (Chen Chang), Bang recalls his betrayal of both men due to his overwhelming thirst for power as an uncultured and uneducated soldier, which led to paranoia and fear once he became ruler. Even years after the deaths of Yu and Xin, Bang’s soul is still deeply troubled as he is unable to find peace in the position he dreamed of and fought ruthlessly to achieve.
The release will feature a 1080p high definition transfer to bring out the best in the movie’s breathtaking cinematography, while a DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio track will make sure to underscore the action on the screen adequately. The release will not contain any bonus materials.
“The Last Supper” is leaping into stores on October 14 for $19.98 as a Blu-Ray/DVD Combo and $14.99 on DVD.
