Lionsgate Films have officially announced and detailed their upcoming 3D Blu-ray release of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor‘s Gamer. The film, which stars Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Amber Valletta, Kyra Sedgwick, Terry Crews, and Ludacris, will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on May 7th.
In the film, Butler stars as Kable, condemned criminal and globally famous super-soldier in the ultimate multi-player game, “Slayers.” Human controllers direct each thought and move of real-life prison inmates battling in hyper-intense environments – where the goal is freedom and the penalty is death. But when Kable suddenly decides he wants out, his rebellion threatens the twisted plans of game creator Ken Castle (Hall), who will stop at nothing to crush the renegade commando in this taut, adrenaline-packed action-thriller.
Gamer was released in theaters in September of 2009 and grossed over $40 million at the worldwide box office.
Gamer 3D will include several special features, including an Inside the Game: Controlling Gamer featurette.
