Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor bringing The Island to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that the 2005 action film THE ISLAND, starring Scarlett Johansson, Ewan McGregor, Sean Bean and Djimon Hounsou, will be released on Blu-ray June 21, 2011. The Michael Bay film follows a man and woman who go on the run after they discover that they were made for the sole purpose of organ harvesting. In true Michael Bay fashion there are lots of explosions (sometimes unnecessary ones) and lots of intricate chase scenes. The film grossed over $160 million at the box office, but is still considered a bomb and not really loved by many.

I’m going to come out and confess that even though THE ISLAND wasn’t great, it wasn’t that bad either (Michael Bay does not make bad movies). It’s one of those mindless action films that are sometimes nice to pop in at midnight when you’re having a bout of insomnia and don’t have to put a lot of thought into the ridiculous plot. Special features for THE ISLAND include:
