BURIED Gets Dug Up In Jan

Gotta love this age of the “limited theatrical run”.  I swear, I just don’t understand the point or use.  We’ve been talking about BURIED since Sundance when it made a bunch of noise at the festival.  We then eagerly awaited its theatrical release only to have it come out in about 3 theaters for about a day and a half.  I just don’t get it.  They must have a reason.

Regardless, LIONSGATE sent out a press release announcing the Blu-ray/DVD release on Jan. 18th and it’s going to be one of those combo packs which I personally love to get.

I like having all the formats in one nice little package.

Here’s all the info straight from the press release:

Ninety minutes to save his life.  Experience the claustrophobic thriller, Buried, as Lionsgate brings the film to Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack (two discs including Blu-ray and DVD), Digital Download and On Demand. An Official Selection and favorite at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the film garnered critical acclaim across all media.  Ryan Reynolds delivers a tour-de-force performance (Access Hollywood), as Paul Conroy, an American contractor in Iraq faced with an impossible situation.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the special feature Unearthing Buried, a making of featurette.  An unbelievable ride of emotions, Buried is certain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is not ready to die.  Beaten and buried in a wooden box by Iraqi insurgents who attacked his civilian convoy, Conroy is left with only a cell phone, a lighter and 90 minutes to save his own life.  He has only the voice of his kidnapper to help him piece together clues that could lead an elite team of special agents to his location and time is not on his side.  Fighting despair, panic and delirium, Conroy focuses on his only link to the outside world, a cell phone with poor reception and a rapidly draining battery – to keep himself alive for himself and his family back home.

Pricing: Blu-ray Combo Pack $29.95 (Blu-ray Disc plus DVD)

Maybe this one will find it’s audience finally.  I know I for one am looking forward to finally getting to see it.
