    Burbank, Calif., October 20, 2008 – Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday Director’s Cut, the Academy Award®-winning director’s epic yet intimate look at the modern-day gladiators of the gridiron -- will make its Blu-ray High-Def debut January 27, just in time for the next Super Bowl.

    Any Given Sunday Director’s Cut will sell for $28.99 SRP. Order due date is December 23, 2008.

    Any Given Sunday Director’s Cut boasts the invincible all-star line-up of Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, James Woods, Ann-Margaret, Dick Butkus, Jim Brown, Lawrence Taylor and Charlton Heston, all contributing to provide a front-row seat and inside look at the sport and business of professional football. The action-packed film focuses not just on the players, but also on the coaches, the players often beleaguered families, the moneyed team owners and corporations attempting to control the game as big business, the hungry sports media and the hangers-on trying to get a taste of the glamour.

    Director Oliver Stone is one of American cinema's most prolific innovators and the recipient of three Academy Awards®. Among his memorable films are Platoon, Wall Street, Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, The Doors, Nixon, Alexander, and World Trade Center.
