New Release: The Man From Nowhere DVD and Blu-ray

South Korea’s highest-grossing film of 2010, the acclaimed action-filled crime thriller The Man From Nowhere, arrived on DVD and Blu-ray from Well Go USA on March 8, 2011.

Directed by Lee Jeong-Beom (Cruel Winter Blues), the movie revolves around ex-special agent Tae-sik Cha (Bin Won), whose only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi (Kim Sae-Ron), who lives nearby. Her mother, Hyo-jeong (Kim Yyo-Seo), smuggles drugs from a crime syndicate and entrusts Tae-sik with the product, without letting him know of her nefarious dealings.

But the syndicate finds out about her smuggling and kidnaps both Hyo-jeong and So-mi, promising to release them if Tae-sik makes a delivery. Crosses and double-crosses ensue, resulting in a rising body count and the growing rage of Tae-sik, who must prepare for a battle of epic proportions.

The Man From Nowhere grossed $45 million in its native country and enjoyed a limited release in theaters in the fall of 2010 in a dozen top North American markets, where it grossed nearly $750,000.

No special features are on the DVD and Blu-ray, which carry the suggested retail prices of $24.98 and $26.98, respectively.
