LOS ANGELES, CA (Aug. 3, 2010) – Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight) stars as a troubled priest caught up in the murderous conspiracy of an arcane sect of dissident holy men in The Order, debuting on Blu-ray Disc September 14 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The very laws of heaven and hell are defied in this religious thriller that “does not disappoint” (Sight and Sound) from Academy Award-winning** writer/director Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, A Knight’s Tale).

After the head of his order of priests dies, Alex Bernier (Ledger), is sent to Rome to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death. The body bears strange marks on the chest that may be the sign of a Sin Eater, a renegade who offers absolution, last rites and a path to heaven outside the jurisdiction of the Catholic Church. Alex enlists the aid of an old comrade Father Thomas (Mark Addy, The Full Monty) and of a troubled artist (Shannyn Sossamon, Our Family Wedding) for whom he once performed an exorcism, only to find himself plunged into a mystery that brings him to the very brink of hell.

The Order Blu-ray disc contains special features including audio commentary by Brian Helgeland, deleted scenes, and dailies from the set during shooting. It will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 U.S. The prebook date is August 18.
