District 13: Ultimatum (R2/UK BD) in October
Momentum Pictures have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of District 13: Ultimatum on 26th October 2009. Writer-producer Luc Besson returns with stars Cyril Raffaelli and David Belle for this sequel to District 13. Directed by Patrick Alessandrin, the film is set three years after the events of the first movie, and it appears that despite government promises nothing has changed in District 13, the racially charged ghetto notorious for its gangs, drug dealers and killers. A consortium of corrupt cops and government officials is conspiring to cause civil unrest within D13 with a view to finding an excuse to raze the area and cash in on its redevelopment. When a local kid accidentally uncovers the plot, the district's resident idealist Leito (Belle) and elite law-enforcer Damien Tomaso (Raffaelli) are reunited in a bid to bring peace to the troubled neighbourhood and to expose the conspiracy before a proposed air-strike can destroy the area Leito calls home.
Priced at £15.99 RRP on DVD and £24.99 RRP on Blu-ray Disc, extras include a 'Making of' documentary, Production Diary and Deleted scenes.
Prior to the home release District 13: Ultimatum will open in selected UK cinemas on 2nd October 2009.
