PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
One of Marvel comic’s most popular superhero action franchises returns with the March 24, 2009 DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Punisher: War Zone. Frank Castle is back and it is six years into his vengeance driven zeal as “The Punisher” and he is now set to take on the mob. The 2-Disc Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray contain a standard definition digital copy of the film as well as thrilling bonus features including multiple featurettes examining all elements of making the film plus audio commentary. The Blu-ray Disc also features MOLOG™, a BD Live application that allows users to insert and animate shapes, text, audio and other graphics right into the film as well as post “blogs” about the film to share with other registered MOLOG™ users. The standard one-disc DVD will include a Widescreen and Full Screen version of the film along with the theatrical trailer. Punisher: War Zone features a hit sound track from today’s hottest rock bands including Slayer, Slipknot, Seether, Rise Against, Hatebreed, Static-X and a new single from Rob Zombie.

Waging his one-man war on the world of organized crime, ruthless vigilante-hero Frank Castle (Ray Stevenson, HBO’s “Rome”) sets his sights on overeager mob boss, Billy Russoti (Dominic West, HBO’s “The Wire”). After Russoti is left horribly disfigured by Castle, he sets out to seek vengeance under his new alias: Jigsaw. With the “Punisher Task Force” hot on his trail and the FBI unable to take Jigsaw in, Frank must stand up to the formidable army that Jigsaw has recruited before more of his evil deeds go unpunished.

The film is based on Marvel’s Punisher comic book series, written by Nick Santora and Art Marcum & Matt Holloway, and directed by Lexi Alexander.
