We Were Soldiers debuts in August
One of the bloodiest battles in Vietnam was brought to the big screen by Mel Gibson and a wonderful supporting cast. This August it will come to the small screen on DVD thanks to the folks at Paramount Home Entertainment.
On November 14, 1965, in a place known as the Valley of Death, in a small clearing about the size of a football field, Lt. Col. Hal Moore and 400 young troopers from the U.S. Air Cavalry were surrounded by 2000 enemy soldiers. The ensuing battle was one of the most savage in history. Mel Gibson stars in this powerful story of real-life heroes who fought in Vietnam for country, love and freedom.
The new DVD will have a few enticing extras including an audio commentary by Randall Wallace, "Getting It Right", a behind-the-scenes featurette and ten deleted scenes with director's commentary. The DVD will be presented in anamorphic widescreen with audio in Dolby Digital EX 5.1 and Dolby Surround 2.0.
Arriving on August 20th , "We Were Soldiers" will carry a suggested retail price of $29.99.
This one I'll pay full price AND stand in line for!
