The all-action thriller from director Babak Najafi, London Has Fallen, will be making its way to the home entertainment market place on June 14 as both DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions.
This CGI wonder (which is really well executed) — many of London’s favorite tourist spots are obliterated on-screen — arrives with an ARR of 102 days and domestic ticket sales of $60.8 million.
All of the key cast members from Olympus Has Fallen — Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett and Morgan Freeman — are back for another round of “let’s kill the president” … and most manage to survive the attempt once again (which leaves open the possibility of another … Has Fallen sequel).
As to bonus goodies, there are a pair of featurettes, which are common to both release SKUs — “The Making of London Has Fallen” and “Guns, Knives & Explosives.”
Also getting a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and stand alone DVD push from Universal Studios Home Entertainment this week — and also slated for release on June 14 — is director Gavin Hood’s drone-strike thriller, Eye in the Sky, starring Helen Mirren.
The ARR is 109 days and domestic ticket sales during the film’s theatrical run have rise to $10.5 million.
Of note, this is Alan Rickman’s final film appearance. He succumbed to the ravages of pancreatic cancer in January of this year about seven weeks before Eye in the Sky opened theatrically. His voice will also be featured as the Blue Caterpillar in director James Bobin’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, which is will be released theatrically at the end of May.
Bonus nuggets for Eye in the Sky are two featurettes — “Perspective” and “Morals.”
