Jeremy Saulnier’s masterful film, Green Room, got a theatrical release last month and I hope most of you saw it theatrically. I’m a huge fan of Saulnier since Murder Party and even saw Blue Ruin twice during a film festival. While I saw Green Room last year at Fantastic Fest, as soon as it was in St. Louis last Friday, I went to see it again. Imagine Assault on Precinct 13 or any siege film for that matter but done in reverse where our protaganists have to fight to get out of a room. Mix in skinheads with Patrick Stewart as the leader, vicious dogs and punk music and you get a general idea. The good news is, if you’re like me, you don’t have to wait long to see the film again in the comfort of your own home. If you were not fortunate enough to get Green Room in your city after the nationwide expansion on April 29th, this is even better news for you.
From the Press Release
Spike your hair, throw on your combat boots, and get ready to dive into the mosh pit when the brilliantly crafted thriller Green Room hits Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) July 12 from Lionsgate. Theatrically released by A24, and written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier (who achieved critical success with BlueRuin), Green Room is a film that critics are calling “the best screw-tightening siege movie of the year” (Rolling Stone). Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the award-winning film stars Golden Globe® nominee Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past) in a role ”that’s as cool as it is evil” (Bloody Disgusting) and will haunt audiences well past the closing credits. The “delightfully nasty horror chiller” (Chicago Sun-Times) also stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Beyond), Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Alia Shawkat (The Final Girls), Joe Cole (Secret in Their Eyes), and Callum Turner (Queen & Country).
After witnessing a shocking crime, a young rock band is unexpectedly thrust into a life-or-death battle to escape the clutches of a diabolical club owner (Stewart) and his ruthless henchmen in this white-knuckle thriller.
The home entertainment release of Green Room contains audio commentary with Director Jeremy Saulnier and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The Green Room Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
