'The Wild Geese' Blu-ray Announced
Tags: Severin, Disc Announcements (all tags)
The 1978 action/adventure is coming to Blu-ray in December!
In an early announcement to retailers, Severin will be bringing the classic film 'The Wild Geese' to Blu-ray on December 11.
Screen legends Richard Burton, Roger Moore, and Richard Harris star as a team of aging mercenaries hired by a wealthy industrialist for one final mission: Recruit and train a squad of desperate commandos, parachute into an unstable African nation, snatch its deposed President from a maximum security army prison, escape via the military-controlled airport, and massacre anyone who gets in their way. Getting to the target will be murder. But when the group is double-crossed, getting out alive may be impossible. Hardy Kruger ('A Bridge Too Far'), Frank Finlay ('The Three Musketeers'), Barry Foster ('Frenzy') and Stewart Granger ('King Solomon's Mines') co-star in this blood & guts action classic, now packed with all-new bonus features and fully re-mastered in explosive HD for the first time ever in America!
