LONE SURVIVOR tells the true story of four Navy SEALs on an ill-fated covert mission to neutralise a high-level Taliban operative.

ls

Based on The New York Times bestseller, LONE SURVIVOR is a story of heroism, courage and survival. This high impact and remarkably realistic film makes the perfect gift for Father’s Day as it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD – both with UltraViolet – from June 9th 2014 from Universal Pictures (UK).

Directed by Peter Berg (Battleship, Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom,) LONE SURVIVOR stars two time Academy-Award® nominee Mark Wahlberg (Ted, The Fighter) as brave and courageous Navy seal Marcus Luttrell. Marcus is accompanied by his fearless band of brothers including; Taylor Kitsch (Savages, Battleship, Friday Night Lights), who plays Lieutenant Michael Murphy; Emile Hirsch (Savages, Killer Joe, Milk), who stars as Danny Dietz; Ben Foster (Contraband, The Mechanic), who is Matt ‘Axe’ Axelson and Eric Bana (Hanna, Troy, Munich), who plays Erik Kristensen.

LONE SURVIVOR tells the true story of the failed mission ‘Operation Red Wings’ in Afghanistan. Marcus Luttrell and his team set out to capture or kill notorious Al Qaeda leader Ahmad Shahd, in late June 2005. After running into mountain herders and capturing them, they were left with no choice but to follow their rules of engagement or be imprisoned. Now Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.

Here is a special featurette entitled ‘A Look Inside’ where Peter Berg and the cast take you through how the film was brought to life:

Putting you right in the front line, this incredibly tense film is the ideal present this Father’s Day. Catch LONE SURVIVOR as it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD – both with UltraViolet – from June 9th 2014 from Universal Pictures (UK).

BAFTA award-winner BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH gives an outstanding performance in the adrenalin-fuelled dramatic thriller, THE FIFTH ESTATE. This powerful exposé based on the real-life events of the notorious WikiLeaks.

Driven to expose corporate crimes and government secrets no matter what the cost, activist Julian Assange (Cumberbatch) and computer hacker Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Bruhl) team up to become the underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. As their Wikileaks organisation starts to gather support and influence across the globe so the stakes are raised; pitching them into conflict with the US intelligence agencies and putting the lives of thousands in danger.

The home entertainment release takes you further inside the conspiracies with the DVD featuring an additional featurette ‘The Submission Platform’ and the Blu-ray packed with even more behind-the-scenes action with ‘In-Camera Graphics’ and ‘Scoring Secrets’.

Game of Thrones Season 3 was released today on Blu-ray and DVD, and we have a great competition to win a Games of Thrones Complete Season 3 DVD Boxset – and here are the winners.

UK_GOT_S3_SD_VIVA_PREM_3D_thumb2

In the third season of the hit HBO original series based on the bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. This epic drama is set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. In Season 3, family and loyalty will be the overarching themes, and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head, with several major characters meeting cruel fates. While a primary focus continues to be on King’s Landing, where the Lannisters barely held onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark, King of the North, will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2, while further north, Mance Rayder (new character) and his huge army of wildlings begin an inexorable march south to scale the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three deadly, fast-maturing dragons – attempts to raise an army of slaves to sail with her from Essos to Westeros, in hopes of eventually overthrowing the Iron Throne.
