It's time for a crime drama that pulls no punches when on January 4, 2011, Image Entertainment releases GUN. Starring rap sensation Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin') and Val Kilmer (MacGruber), GUN is a high octane ride through the crime ridden streets of Detroit: a gritty story that's as explosive as its title. This action packed hip-hop take on the film noir genre will be on DVD with an SRP of $27.97, and on Blu-rayTM for $29.97. The film will also be available via digital download. Image also holds all non-theatrical rights. The pre-book is December 7th.
As brutal as it is honest, GUN is an eye-opening experience. Seemingly ripped from today's headlines, the movie sets its cross hairs on the rising crime rates and gun violence of a modern city in a slump, as the Detroit Police launches a full-scale war against the gun runners that terrify the populace. With the cooperation of the FBI they target a criminal named Rich (Jackson) and his vast arms operation. When a gun exchange goes bad and Rich's old friend Angel (Kilmer), steps up and saves his life, they form a bond that makes his supplier and lover, Gabriella (Anna Lynne McCord, "90210") paranoid and on edge. Paranoia turns to suspicion when it becomes obvious there is a snitch in the group, and when Gabriella's biggest deal goes bad, an even bigger secret is revealed, one that will rock Rich, and the audience, to its core.
Also staring James Remar (Pineapple Express) and John Larroquette (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning), and with music by 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, GUN is loaded with a nervous energy that pulsates with the hip hop beat of the inner city. Riveting and uncompromising, GUN is a film that will leave you shell-shocked.
