Warner Bros announces Judas and the Black Messiah on Blu-ray and DVD
Some of the most powerful films are ones dealing with real life people and events. The latest, Judas and the Black Messiah looks to be one of those films and features a great cast including Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield, Jesse Plemons, Dominique Fishback, Ashton Sanders and Martin Sheen with director Shaka King at the helm.
Judas and The Black Messiah follows a young, charismatic activist named Fred Hampton in 1968 who became Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, who were fighting for freedom, the power to determine the destiny of the Black community, and an end to police brutality and the slaughter of Black people. Chairman Fred was inspiring a generation to rise up and not back down to oppression, which put him directly in the line of fire of the government, the FBI and the Chicago Police. But to destroy the revolution, they had to do it from both the outside…and the inside. Facing prison, William O’Neal is offered a deal by the FBI: if he will infiltrate the Black Panthers and provide intel on Hampton, he will walk free.
In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including featurettes taking you behind bringing this true story to life. Join the revolution and grab your copy of Judas and the Black Messiah when it hits PVOD on Apil 2nd, followed digital on April 27th and then Blu-ray and DVD on May 4th from Warner Bros Home Entertainment.
