THE POOP SCOOP: Upcoming Fall Friskies

HACKSAW RIDGE arrives on 4K Steelbook from Lionsgate, exclusively at Best Buy 11/2
From Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson (1995, Braveheart), and starring Andrew Garfield in his Oscar-nominated performance (2016, Actor in a Leading Role) comes the inspiring tale of wartime heroism: Hacksaw Ridge. Hacksaw Ridge arrives November 2nd on 4K Ultra HD SteelBook from Lionsgate, exclusively at Best Buy. The film tells the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers, was wounded by a grenade, and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor. Featuring all-new artwork from artist Krzysztof Domaradzki, Hacksaw Ridge will be available on 4K Ultra HD SteelBook at Best Buy.
