Lionsgate Announces Andrew Lau's INFERNAL AFFAIRS On Blu-ray November 15th
Infernal Affairs was initially released on DVD years ago to very little fanfare, and eventually ended up bundled in a Dragon Dynasty box set with the sequels. However, with Miramax selling their catalog to Lionsgate for home video, we may not see matching releases of parts 2 and 3 for a while. In any case, here are the details for the upcoming Blu-ray release:
Infernal Affairs Blu-ray Disc
The gritty crime thriller that served as inspiration for The Departed makes its high-definition debut as Lionsgate releases Infernal Affairs on Blu-ray Disc. Honored with seven top prizes at the Hong Kong Film Awards, including Best Picture, the film stars international sensation Tony Leung ( Hero ). The Blu-ray Disc comes packed with bonus materials including a mind-bending alternate ending, a behind-the-scenes featurette and a "making of" featurette plus international trailers.
A tough veteran cop (Leung) is sent undercover to infiltrate a notorious crime ring, The Triad. Having done this work before, he thinks he's in for a routine mission until he discovers that the leader of the Triad has planted a mole in the police department. A bad situation turns deadly as the two cops compete in the ultimate battle of will.
Pricing: Blu-ray Disc - $19.99
