Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Rounders (10th Anniversary Edition) on 14th April 2009. Matt Damon and Ed Norton star as denizens of the hidden world of illegal high-stakes poker in this film directed by John Dahl and written by David Levien and Brian Koppelman.
