Without question the coolest movie of 2011, Icon Home Entertainment is pleased to confirm the highly anticipated Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download release of DRIVE on January 30th 2012.
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson), DRIVE features one of the hottest young casts ever assembled, starring Academy Award Nominees Ryan Gosling (The Ides of March, Blue Valentine) and Carey Mulligan (An Education, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps) alongside Golden Globe Winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy), Emmy Nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), and Academy Award Nominee Albert Brooks (Taxi Driver).
Since its worldwide premier at the Cannes International Film Festival in May 2011, where Winding Refn claimed the prestigious “Best Director” award, DRIVE has wowed audiences and critics alike, not since Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction has a film been made with such an assured sense of direction, and knowing respect to its legacy of modern classic cinema.
Adapted from James Sallis’ 2005 novel of the same name, DRIVE is the story of a Hollywood wheel-man for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day, and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. After a job spins unpredictably out of control and our Driver finds himself as a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men, the only way he can keep himself, Irene, and her son alive is to do what he does best – Drive!
