Gran Torino (R2/UK BD) in June - Updated

Warner Home Video have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Gran Torino on 29th June 2009. Clint Eastwood (who also directs) stars as Korean War vet Walt Kowalski, a man who doesn’t much like how his life or his neighbourhood has turned out. He especially doesn’t like the people next door, Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia. But events force Walt to defend those neighbours against a local gang which leads to an unlikely friendship between Walt and a young Hmong teenager who tried to steal Walt's prized possession: a 1972 Gran Torino.

Extras include:

  • Manning the Wheel as Reflected in American Car Culture
  • Gran Torino: More than a Car. Visit Detroit and the Woodland Dream Cruise, an Annual vintage car event where buffs describe the unique bond between man and vehicles
  • The Eastwood Way: Exploring the Actor/Director’s filmmaking process up close (Blu-ray exclusive)

The following extras will be made available over BD-Live (Blu-ray only):
