BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Films is proud to announce the release of 5 DAYS OF WAR on Blu-ray™ and DVD. This action-packed international thriller from acclaimed director Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger) is based on the true events of a renegade American journalist, his cameraman and a local woman caught behind enemy lines during the devastating five day war between Russian and the Georgian Republic. 5 DAYS OF WAR arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD with bonus features including a commentary track by Producer/Director Renny Harlin and deleted scenes.


5 DAYS OF WAR is an intensely human portrayal of courage under fire, combining heart-pounding action with real human drama. Inspired by the real events of the swift—but devastating—five-day war between Russia and Georgia in 2008, this action-packed international thriller centers around an American journalist (Rupert Friend) and his cameraman (Richard Coyle) caught in the combat zone during the first Russian airstrikes against Georgia. Rescuing Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a young Georgian schoolteacher from the attack, the two reporters agree to help reunite her with her family when she loses them in the chaos in exchange for serving as their interpreter. As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness—and document—the devastation from the full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians.


They desperately attempt to broadcast the footage they’ve captured while under attack from the Russian soldiers and local mercenaries, but are met with resistance from American and international networks either shorthanded from covering the Beijing Olympics or simply fatigued by war news. The trio realizes their survival is paramount, so they can live to broadcast the truth.

From writers Mikko Alanne and David Battle, 5 DAYS OF WAR features an all-star cast including Rupert Friend (Young VictoriaThe Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Emmanuelle Chriqui (HBO’s “Entourage,” You Don’t Mess With The Zohan), Richard Coyle (Prince of Persia), Andy Garcia (City IslandOceans 12), Val Kilmer (Kiss Kiss Bang BangBatman Forever), and proves director Harlin to still be the master of the high-octane action genre.
