😺THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE arrives on Electronic Sell-Through on 6/18 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD 6/25 from Lionsgate.
Based on the true story of the first special forces mission in history, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare arrives on Electronic Sell-Through on June 18 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD June 25 from Lionsgate. From Guy Ritchie and Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, this high-octane, history-changing story inspired author Ian Fleming to write the postwar James Bond spy novels. The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare stars Henry Cavill, Eiza González, Alan Ritchson, Alex Pettyfer, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Til Schweiger, with Henry Golding and Cary Elwes . Directed and co-written by Ritchie, this action-comedy tells the incredible true story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks led by Gus March-Phillipps (Cavill), goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately, the task force’s audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern black ops warfare.

George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead, the fifth installment in Romero’s Night of the Living Dead series of zombie films, arrives on Steelbook on July 2 from Lionsgate. A group of college film students record the pandemic rise of flesh-eating zombies while struggling for their own survival in this gruesome fright flick only available at Walmart on BD Steelbook. From legendary frightmaster George A. Romero comes “one of the most daring, hypnotic and absolutely vital horror films of the past decade” (Fangoria).  Romero continues his influential “Dead” series, this time focusing on a terrified group of college film students who record the pandemic rise of flesh-eating zombies while struggling for their own survival.  Intensely gruesome and relentlessly grisly – fueled by the director’s signature realistic special effects – Diary of the Dead is must-see horror that “is Romero at his finest” (Bloody Disgusting).
