New Release: Drive Angry DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D

Drive AngryHighly publicized as being shot in 3D, Drive Angry arrived on Blu-ray 3D, as well as DVD and Blu-ray, on May 31, 2011. The action movie was Summit Entertainment‘s first Blu-ray 3D release.

The film was a flop in theaters, grossing only $10 million in wide release and proving that 3D by itself can’t make a movie appealing. Drive Angry, described by the Illinois Times‘ Charles Koplinski as “a tedious ride,” stars Nicolas Cage (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) as a vengeful father who escapes from hell to chase after the men who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter.

Being a bad ass isn’t Cage’s forte. (Sorry, Nic, but leave that to Jason Statham; you really should stick to comedy.) But this movie looks like it could be one of those cheesy, so-bad-it’s-good flicks. It’s got Amber Heard (Pineapple Express) for the sex appeal, William Fichtner (Date Night) for the cool but evil guy, and David Morse (TV’s Treme) as the serious straight man.

The movie is rated R and was priced at $34.99 on Blu-ray 3D, $30.49 on regular Blu-ray and $26.99 on DVD.

The DVD includes these special features:

  • audio commentary with director/co-writer Patrick Lussier (Red Eye) and co-writer Todd Farmer (My Bloody Valentine)
  • deleted scenes with filmmaker commentary
  • “How-To Drive Angry” featurette
  • and “Milton’s Mayhem” featurette, which tracks the body count of Cage’s character.

The Blu-ray versions have the same, except the featurettes are accessible in “Access: Drive Angry,” with which users can activate dynamic “scene specific” features including interviews with cast and filmmakers, Milton’s Mayhem and more.
