Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy and Rupert Grint bringing Wild Target to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that the dark comedy WILD TARGET, starring Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy, Rupert Grint and Rupert Everett, will be released on Blu-ray February 8, 2011. WILD TARGET follows an assassin (Bill Nighy) who is on the verge of retirement, but when he finds himself falling for the con-artist (Emily Blunt) which is his target things start to get tricky. Add into that a young apprentice who is trying to learn the ropes and you have inevitable humor throughout. The film opened as a limited release in October and has received mostly positive reviews.
I’m excited to see Rupert Grint in something other than HARRY POTTER and I’ll be interested to see how he handles a character other than Ron Weasley. This may just be one of those films that turns out to be one of the better flicks this past year. The only special feature on WILD TARGET is a small featurette called “On Target with Emily Blunt”.
