    CENTURY CITY, CA – Feel the Payne on Unrated DVD and Blu-ray! A maverick cop with little regard for the rules – and nothing to lose – investigates a series of mysterious murders that could be tied to the death of his wife and child when MAX PAYNE retaliates to DVD and Blu-ray Disc (BD) January 20th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A stylized adaptation of the hugely popular fan-favorite video game, Academy AwardÒ nominee Mark Wahlberg (The Departed, Shooter) stars as the title character Max Payne, an obsessive DEA agent who descends into the gritty New York City crime world to avenge the gruesome murders of his family and partner. As the mystery begins to slowly unravel, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world and face the demons inside himself in order to ensure that justice is served. Featuring dark, edgy scenes with the action played out like a graphic novel with neo-noir references reminiscent of Sin City, MAX PAYNE was transformed to the screen with stylized visuals by director John Moore (The Omen, Behind Enemy Lines) and features gripping supporting performances from Mila Kunis (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, “That 70’s Show”), Beau Bridges (“Stargate SG-1”), Chris “Ludacris” Bridges (Crash), Chris O’Donnell (Scent of a Woman), Amaury Nolasco (“Prison Break,” Street Kings) and the new “Bond babe” Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Hitman).

    The MAX PAYNE Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray Disc, both featuring Digital Copy, are highlighted by the Unrated Extended Cut of the film plus the never-before-seen animated graphic novel that delves deeper into Max Payne’s endless vengeance, along with an in-depth production documentary on the making of the film (Part 1 is featured on the Special Edition DVD; Part 2 is only available exclusively on the Blu-ray Disc edition).

    The MAX PAYNE single-disc DVD will be available for $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada; the Special Edition DVD with Digital Copy priced at $34.98 U.S. / $45.98 Canada; and the BD version with Digital Copy is available to own for $39.99 U.S. / $ 49.99 Canada.

    Synopsis:
    Max Payne (Wahlberg) is a maverick cop with little regard for rules and nothing left to lose. Hell-bent on revenge, he’s determined to track down those responsible for the brutal murder of his family, but his obsessive investigation takes him on a nightmarish journey where dark fantasy collides with stark reality. As the mystery deepens, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world...and face an unthinkable betrayal that will drive him to the edge of his own sanity.

    I knew it was this Tuesday, I just didn't expect to see it this soon. What I didn't realize was that it hit theaters back in Oct. Well, the good news is I'll be picking this one up.
