    LOS ANGELES, CA (December 6, 2009) – Experience three enthralling stories in dazzling high definition as The Last King Of Scotland, To Live and Die in L.A. and Walk The Line are brought to life as never before on Blu-ray Disc (BD) February 2 from Twentieth Century Fox and MGM Home Entertainment.

    Inspired by real people and events, the gripping, suspenseful stunner, The Last King Of Scotland stars Forest Whitaker in his Oscar&reg winning* performance as the notorious Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. Amin’s incredible story is told as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a young Scotsman who becomes the volatile leader’s personal physician, due in part to Amin’s unexpected passion for Scottish culture. Amin even proclaims himself “The Last King of Scotland.” Seduced by his charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan’s dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape. The Last King Of Scotland BD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99 U.S. / $32.99 Canada.

    William L. Petersen (Manhunter, “CSI”) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) face off in a deadly game of cat and mouse in this riveting action-thriller, To Live and Die in L.A. Full of flash, style and grit, this raw tale of corruption and revenge features one of the most harrowing car chases ever caught on film and a shockingly explosive ending. Federal Agent Richard Chance (Petersen) has a score to settle, and he’s through playing by the rules. Whether that means blackmailing a beautiful parolee, disobeying direct orders or hurtling the wrong way down a crowded freeway, he vows to take down a murderous counterfeiter (Dafoe) by any means necessary. But as the stakes grow higher, will Chance’s obsession with vengeance ultimately destroy him? To Live and Die in L.A. will be available as a two disc BD + DVD set for the suggested retail price of $24.99 U.S. / $25.99 Canada.

    Reese Witherspoon, in her Academy Award&reg winning** performance and Joaquin Phoenix, in his Oscar&reg nominated*** role star in the critically acclaimed Johnny Cash chronicle,Walk The Line. With his driving freight-train chords, steel-eyed intensity and a voice as dark as the night, the legendary “Man in Black” revolutionized music - and forged his legacy as a genuine American icon. Golden Globe&reg winners**** Phoenix (Gladiator, Hotel Rwanda) and Witherspoon (Election, Vanity Fair) star (and sing) as Johnny Cash and June Carter in this inspiring true story of one man’s unwavering devotion to his sound, his message and the greatest love of his life. The Walk The Line BD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.99 U.S. / $32.99 Canada.
