Is It a Game, Or Is It Real? WAR GAMES: THE DEAD CODE Hits DVD

The Government Conspiracy Continues July 29 When MGM Home Entertainment Premieres The Sequel To The Thrilling 80’s Cult Classic

LOS ANGELES, CA – Revisit the game where the only winning move is not to play when WarGames: The Dead Code premieres on DVD July 29 from MGM Home Entertainment. In the sequel to the 1983 $79 million box-office smash, the government is keeping a watchful eye on Will Farmer – a computer hacker who engages a super-computer named Ripley in an online terrorist-attack simulation game that is designed specifically to profile potential threats to the United States. When Homeland Security becomes convinced that Farmer is indeed a potential threat, he must do all in his power to clear his name and end the game. Directed by Stuart Gillard (RocketMan, The Initiation of Sarah) and starring Matt Lanter ("Heroes," "Commander in Chief") and Colm Feore (The Chronicles of Riddick, Chicago), the DVD features director and actor audio commentaries, a "Making Of" featurette and photo galleries.

The WarGames: The Dead Code DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98 U.S. / $37.98 Canada. The WarGames: 25th Anniversary Edition DVD will be available for the suggested retail price will be $14.98 U.S. / $15.98 Canada. Pre-book for both titles is July 2.

WarGames: The Dead Code
When Will Farmer (Lanter) hacks into a restricted network of online gaming known only as R.I.P.L.E.Y., he stumbles onto a national defense system designed to ferret out fledgling terrorist cells…and becomes Ripley’s next target! His identity compromised, his family and friends jeopardized and his hometown in the crosshairs of an automated military response, Will’s only hope to clear his name lies in beating Ripley at her own game. But when the game escalates to the next level, it becomes a race against time to stop Ripley from unleashing Armageddon!
