Universal announces The Marksman on Blu-ray and DVD
Ever since Liam Neeson transitioned into the action role with his 2008 Taken film he has for the most part kept that train moving with numerous other entries into the genre. While not all have live up to the greatness of Taken, I admit I still enjoyed most of them. His latest film, The Marksman looks to continue that trend co-starring Jacob Perez, Teresa Ruiz, Juan Pablo Raba, and Katheryn Winnick with Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz at the helm.
The Marksman follows hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson simply wants to be left alone as he fends off eviction notices and tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when Hanson, an ex-Marine, witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel fleeing with his mother Rosa from drug cartel assassins led by the ruthless Mauricio. After being caught in a shoot-out, an injured Rosa begs Jim to take her son to safety to her family in Chicago. Defying his step-daughter Sarah, Jim sneaks Miguel out of the local U.S. Customs and Border Patrol station and together, they hit the road with the group of killers in pursuit. Jim and Miguel slowly begin to overcome their differences and begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while Mauricio and his fellow assassins blaze a cold-blooded trail, hot on their heels.
In addition to the film this release also includes a featurette taking you behind bringing this film to life. Grab your copy of The Marksman when it hits digital on April 27th and then on Blu-ray and DVD on May 11th from Universal Home Entertainment.
