Release Date: Own it on Blu-ray now (available in stores)

Originally released in 1977 from Director/Producer William Friedkin, Sorcerer has now been restored on Blu-ray by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The release also includes a really cool booklet all about the cast and the movie.

The story follows four different people in different parts of the world and their stories, as they get ready to meet up in South America, to drive trucks of nitroglycerin. As they arrive and get ready to start out on their journey, they realize this isn’t what they want to do. They must learn to work together and face the obstacles in their way in order to survive and get back home.

Released at the same time as ‘Star Wars’ the movie was overshadowed and didn’t do much at the box office. William Friedkin has stated that this is the favorite of his works and the most difficult film he has made. I can agree with him on that (although The Exorcist isn’t too shabby)!
