Since Buried only had a limited theatrical run Lionsgate is doing us all a favor and dropping the cool Ryan Reynolds thriller on DVD and Blu-ray on January 18th and I'm all giddy about this, can you "dig" it?
From the Press Release:
Ninety minutes to save his life. Experience the claustrophobic thriller Buried as Lionsgate brings the film to Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack (two discs including Blu-ray and DVD), Digital Download and On Demand. An Official Selection and favorite at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the film garnered critical acclaim across all media. Ryan Reynolds delivers "a tour-de-force performance" (Access Hollywood), as Paul Conroy, an American contractor in Iraq faced with an impossible situation. The Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the special feature "Unearthing Buried," a "making of" featurette. An unbelievable ride of emotions, Buried is certain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is not ready to die. Beaten and buried in a wooden box by Iraqi insurgents who attacked his civilian convoy, Conroy is left with only a cell phone, a lighter and 90 minutes to save his own life. He has only the voice of his kidnapper to help him piece together clues that could lead an elite team of special agents to his location, and time is not on his side. Fighting despair, panic and delirium, Conroy focuses on his only link to the outside world - a cell phone with poor reception and a rapidly draining battery - to keep himself alive for himself and his family back home.
Pricing: Blu-ray Combo Pack $29.95 (Blu-ray Disc plus DVD)
