From the director of Casino Royale and Goldeneye
Mastered in HD from original 35mm material
New York, NY - January 21, 2013 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of The Sex Thief, the first feature film by director Martin Campbell. The film is a low-budget homage to the James Bond series and helped launch the career of Martin Campbell, who would later direct Goldeneye and Casino Royale.   The film comes to Blu-ray and DVD on Kino Lorber's Jezebel label, with a street date of January 22nd. The SRP for the Blu-ray is $24.95, and the SRP for the DVD is $19.95. This edition is mastered in HD from original 35mm material.   From its opening title sequence, it is apparent that director Martin Campbell intended his first feature, a low-budget sex romp called The Sex Thief, to be an homage to the James Bond series.  Irresistible to women of every variety, the roguish title character (David Warbeck) channels his inner Connery, muttering witty double entendres, relishing the danger of his secret mission, forever sidetracked by beautiful women.   The Sex Thief is especially fun to watch knowing that Campbell eventually achieved his dream--directing not one but two James Bond films (Goldeneye and Casino Royale), as well as the tongue-in-cheek blockbusters Green Lantern and The Mask of ZorroThe Sex Thief is a fascinating precursor to those large-budget Hollywood films showing that, from the beginning of his career, Campbell knew the kinds of films he wanted to make and had the talent to deliver on his promise.
