Contraband UK DVD&Blu Ray News

Strap yourself in for an adrenaline-fuelled race through the criminal underworld as MARK WAHLBERG stars in CONTRABAND. As well as being available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 16 July 2012, Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd are proud to announce that CONTRABAND will be released with revolutionary UltraViolet™ capabilities, as they join a growing number of studios in the US and UK who support this exciting new format.

Co-producer WAHLBERG (The Fighter, Boogie Nights) leads the cast in this fast-paced action thriller about a man trying to stay out of a world he worked so hard to leave behind and the family he’ll do anything to protect. CONTRABAND also stars KATE BECKINSALE (Aviator, Pearl Harbour), BEN FOSTER (The Mechanic, 3:10 to YUMA), GIOVANNI RIBISI (Avatar, Gone in Sixty Seconds) and CALEB LANDRY JONES (X-Men First Class, No Country for Old Men).

Set in New Orleans and Panama, the film explores the cutthroat world of international smuggling; full of desperate criminals, corrupt officials, high-stakes and big payoffs, where loyalty rarely exists and death is just one wrong turn away. Chris Farraday (WAHLBERG) abandoned his life of crime a long time ago, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (LANDRY JONES), fails to complete a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (RIBISI), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best to settle Andy’s debt.

With the help of best friend Sebastian (FOSTER), Chris quickly assembles a crew for one final run to Panama in order to pay Briggs back. However as things quickly fall apart Chris must use his rusty skills to navigate a treacherous network of brutal drug lords, cops and hitmen before his wife, Kate (BECKINSALE), and young sons become their target.
