In celebration of its 35th Anniversary, the Mel Gibson headlined Attack Force Z hits Blu-ray and digital on November 7. Originally released in North America in June 1982, the story centers on a group of commandos who are tasked with rescuing plane survivors on a South Pacific island thatâ€™s occupied by the Japanese. Gibson stars as Captain P.G. Kelly in this WWII tale that co-stars Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and John Waters (Breaker Morant).
Attack Force Z features a new 4K scan and restoration of the film. Special features include the 25 minute segment â€śThe 2-Men Debriefedâ€ť which contains interviews with executive producer John McCallum and actors Waters and Chris Haywood. The theatrical trailer and a photo gallery are also included.
â€śPrevious home video versions of this film have looked sub-par,â€ť said Eric Wilkinson, MVD Entertainment Groupâ€™s Director of Acquisitions and Sales. â€śUmbrella Entertainment has done an amazing job restoring this film to its original glory. As a collector of physical media myself, Iâ€™m happy to announce that Attack Force Z represents the first of many classic films on Blu-ray that MVD will be releasing in the near future.â€ť
Attack Force Z is available for pre-order on MVDshop.com and Amazon.
