Culver City, Calif (April 19, 2010) – Audiences will confront the unimaginable when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes the action-packed espionage thriller Unthinkable on Blu-ray and DVD this June 15, 2010 ($30.95 Blu-ray and $24.96 DVD). Samuel L. Jackson (Oscar® nominee for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Pulp Fiction, 1995) leads an all star cast including Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix trilogy), Michael Sheen (Underworld films, New Moon, Alice in Wonderland), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), and Benito Martinez (Million Dollar Baby) in this high-stakes suspense-thriller where error is not an option and time is of the essence.
When the FBI apprehends Mr. Younger, (Sheen), an American Muslim and suspected terrorist, they enlist the help of an expert black-ops interrogator referred to only as “H” (Jackson). “H” is a top-notch interrogator whose sole purpose is to safeguard the United States from terrorist threats. “H” has two days to get Younger to disclose the whereabouts of three nuclear bombs he claims to have planted in three major American cities. The clock is ticking.

But the location of his bombs remains a mystery. With time running out, FBI agent Helen Brody (Carrie-Anne Moss, "Disturbia") agrees to work alongside a mysterious interrogator known only as "H" (Samuel L. Jackson, "Lakeview Terrace), whose ruthless methods get results. But a power struggle develops between Brody, "H' and the terrorist, and what happens next is unbelievable and -ultimately-Unthinkable!
