It seems like only yesterday when I reported the speculation that the Rambo Extended Cut Blu-ray would be coming soon. I never knew I would be reporting this so quick, but Lionsgate Home Entertainment has just announced a July 27th release date. The extended cut will feature 9 minutes of extra footage and nearly 90 minutes of newly created bonus materials. Sylvester Stallone fans around the world…REJOICE! Check out the small press release issued from Lionsgate today for more information.
Hailed as “the best Rambo yet” (Bloody-Disgusting.com), the fourth film of the Rambo series stars Stallone, Julie Benz (Showtime’s “Dexter”), Matthew Marsden (Resident Evil: Extinction) and Paul Schulze (Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie”). Vietnam veteran John Rambo (Stallone) has survived a lifetime of near-death ordeals and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Thailand. But the hero leaves his home after being recruited to protect the missionaries on a humanitarian aid effort, Rambo is faced with the impossible task of rescue efforts during a civil war in Burma. This brand new extended cut features nine extra minutes of the film, plus nearly 90 minutes of newly created special features including “RAMBO: To Hell and Back” – Sylvester Stallone’s video production diary.
