Renaissance (R1) in July
Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Renaissance on 24th July 2007 priced at $29.99 SRP. Set in the labyrinthine underworld of 2054 Paris, the black-and-white thriller paints a bold vision of a stark, not-so-distant future where all life is monitored, recorded and regulated thanks to the city’s largest corporation, Avalon. Detective Barthelemy Karas, voiced by Daniel Craig (“Casino Royale”) has a reputation for finding anyone at any cost, but while tracking down a kidnapped scientist, he ultimately finds himself buried beneath Renaissance’s illicit world of corporate malfeasance and soulless genetic research. Ian Holm, Catherine McCormack and Jonathan Pryce also voice roles in this digitally animated sci-fi crime thriller that was shot using motion capture technology by director Christian Volckman.
Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with English DD5.1 Surround Sound and French and Spanish subtitles, bonus features include “The Making of Renaissance”, a featurette that explores how the filmmakers brought the digitally animated noir tale to life.
