Crime and romance collide in High Definition this March as Miramax’s Reindeer Games: The Director’s Cut explodes onto Blu-ray Disc for the first time.  Oscar® winners Ben Affleck (Best Original Screenplay, Good Will Hunting, 1997) and Charlize Theron (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Monster, 2003) team up in the non-stop action drama, directed by John Frankenheimer (Ronin).  In addition to the film’s HD debut, the disc also includes a behind-the-scenes featurette, audio commentary with Frankenheimer and scenes cut from the original theatrical film.  Reindeer Games: The Director’s Cut premieres on Blu-ray Disc on March 6th, for the suggested retail price of $14.99.

After serving six years of a sentence for grand theft auto, Rudy (Affleck) and his cellmate, Nick (James Frain, TRON: Legacy), are finally about to be paroled when Nick is killed in a prison riot.  Having heard stories of Nick’s letters to Ashley (Theron), a woman he’s never met, Rudy assumes Nick’s identity to continue the romance.  But Nick’s past comes at great expense to Rudy, when Ashley’s brother coerces him to cooperate in a casino heist.
