New Release: Passion Play Blu-ray and DVD

Passion Play movie scene

Beauty and the beast: Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke get to know each other in Passion Play.

Image Entertainment released the gritty, sexy but poorly reviewed thriller movie Passion Play, starring Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2), Megan Fox (Jonah Hex) and Bill Murray (Get Low), on Blu-ray and DVD on May 31, 2011.

The directorial debut of Mitch Glazer (screenwriter of The Recruit), who also wrote the movie, the noir-ish film revolves around Nate Poole (Rourke), a washed-up jazz musician fleeing from trigger-happy gangster Happy Shannon (Murray).

While on the run, Nate stumbles across a traveling carnival and is mesmerized by the carnival’s prized attraction, Lily “The Bird Woman” (Fox). But Lily is no carny fake: her wings are real. The fugitive musician falls in love with this angelic creature, and he convinces her to leave with him…

Coming off a May 6 release in a limited number of theaters in New York and Los Angeles, Passion Play is available on DVD and Blu-ray for the list prices of $27.97 and $29.97, respectively. No bonus features are on the discs.

Passion Play also stars Rhys Ifans (Greenberg), Kelly Lynch (TV’s The L Word) and former UFC sensation Chuck Liddell.
