Ryan Reynolds and Buried coming to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced that BURIED, starring Ryan Reynolds and Samantha Mathis, will be released in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack on January 18, 2011. The movie follows Paul Conroy (Reynolds) who is a contractor in Iraq and after an attack he finds himself in a coffin with nothing but a cell phone, lighter and about 90 minutes of air. The film had a limited release in the US and opened at only a couple of festivals with a box office gross of just over $1 million.
This movie sounds like my absolute worst nightmare and I would never in a million years watch something like this, but I guess I can see the appeal. I myself have wondered how I would escape such a situation and have determined that I would probably just pray to die of a heart attack quickly. Special features for BURIED only include a making of featurette entitled Unearthing Buried.
