Posting this now is a little odd to say the least. About a week before the tragic accident that took the life of Anton Yelchin way too soon, Bloody Disgusting received an exclusive clip from Lionsgate of Yelchin discussing why he became involved with Green Room. The plan at the time was to hold the clip until today, July 8th, and when the terrible news regarding Yelchin came out I was unsure of what to do with it.
I decided to still hold it until today. I don’t know if it really matters at all or makes a difference or whatever, but to me it felt more respectable to do it this way and follow through with the original plan. Watching the video now is definitely bittersweet, but I do hope that you watch it. It’s rather short, but it’s funny and Yelchin’s natural charm shines through. Even now it’s hard not to laugh when he says why he chose to do Green Room.
Spike your hair, throw on your combat boots, and get ready to dive into the mosh pit when the brilliantly crafted thriller Green Room hits Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) July 12 from Lionsgate. Theatrically released by A24, and written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier (who achieved critical success with Blue Ruin), Green Room is a film that critics are calling “the best screw-tightening siege movie of the year” (Rolling Stone). Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the award-winning filmstars Golden Globe® nominee Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past)in a role ”that’s as cool as it is evil” (Bloody Disgusting) and will haunt audiences well past the closing credits. The “delightfully nasty horror chiller” (Chicago Sun-Times) also stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Beyond), Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Alia Shawkat (The Final Girls), Joe Cole (Secret in Their Eyes), and Callum Turner (Queen & Country).
After witnessing a shocking crime, a young rock band is unexpectedly thrust into a life-or-death battle to escape the clutches of a diabolical club owner (Stewart) and his ruthless henchmen in this white-knuckle thriller.
The home entertainment release of Green Room contains audio commentary with Director Jeremy Saulnier and a behind-the-scenes featurette. The Green Room Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
