SANTA MONICA, CA – The bold action thriller, Free Fire, arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD July 18 from Lionsgate. Winner of the People’s Choice Award for Midnight Madness at the Toronto International Film Festival, Free Fire is executive produced by Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese (Best Director, The Departed, 2006) and is directed and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley (High Rise, Kill List). The film, “a cult classic in the making” (The Film Stage) features an all-star cast including Sharlto Copley (District 9), Armie Hammer (The Social Network), Oscar winner Brie Larson (Best Actress, Room, 2015), Golden Globe nominee Cillian Murphy (Best Actor – Musical or Comedy, Breakfast on Pluto, 2006), and Jack Reynor (Sing Street).
Free Fire is an electrifying action-thriller about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Set in 1970s Boston, the film opens with Justine (Larson), a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord (Hammer) arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris (Murphy) and shifty South African gunrunner Vernon (Copley). What starts as a polite if uneasy exchange soon goes south when tensions escalate and shots are fired, quickly leading to a full-on battle royale where it’s every man (and woman) for themselves.
Featuring all-new bonus content, including an audio commentary with co-writer/director Ben Wheatley and a featurette looking at the making of the film, and the cast that brought it to life, Free Fire will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
