Generation Kill (mini-series) - 'Blu' Kill Coming from HBO Video Day-and-Date with the Standard-Def DVD Version


3-BD release invades on December 16th

    Based on the national best-selling book by Evan Wright, Generation Kill is an authentic and vividly detailed 7 part HBO mini-series event that presents a uniquely epic and intimate portrait of the first 40 days of the Iraq war from the perspective of the Marines of the First Recon Battalion - a new breed of American soldiers.

    The mini-series tells the story of these young Marines physical and emotional journey into the heart of Baghdad in those initial weeks, and how the war reveals to be much more complicated, problematic and tragic than anyone had contemplated. Many of the complications and problems that arise are due to the unwieldy military bureaucracy which the Marines confront in the midst of the war, the challenges of over-zealous and incompetent commanding officers, ever-changing rules of engagement, a non-existent strategy, severe deficiencies in necessary armor and supplies, and an enemy they don't understand.

    Generation Kill is a humorous and frightening first hand account of these remarkable men, of the personal toll of victory, and of the brutality, camaraderie and bureaucracy of a new American war. It is a profoundly insightful and realistic look at the risk, costs and ultimately, the failures of the war.
As you know, HBO's recent mini-series Generation Kill is coming to DVD on December 16th. Now a new pre-order listing at Amazon shows that the same production will be out on high-definition Blu-ray Disc as well, arriving day-and-date with the DVD.

Neither HBO Video nor their distributor, Warner Home Video, have formally announced the title yet, but the Amazon listing shows a 3-disc release costing $79.98 SRP. However, Amazon is currently discounting it to $59.95, so lock in your copy at that price while you can (note that Amazon's discounted prices are subject to change at their discretion, with no notice). Stay tuned and we'll update you further with the officialy studio info, plus Blu-ray box art, just as soon as that is made available!
