SAM RILEY, CURTIS “50 CENT” JACKSON, RAY WINSTONE, ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD, WITH MICKEY ROURKE AND JASON STATHAM LEAD ALL-STAR CAST IN ANCHOR BAY FILMS THRILLER "13" ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD

Pull The Trigger November 8th; Theatrical Engagement October 28th


BEVERLY HILLS, CA – A chilling and unnerving exploration of the relationship between power and money, Anchor Bay Films presents 13 on Blu-ray™ and DVD November 8th. A remake of the award-winning 2005 international sensation 13 Tzameti, 13 is written and directed by Gela Babluani, the original film’s writer/director, and boasts an all-star cast including Sam Riley (Control, Brighton Rock), Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin’), Ray Winstone (The Departed, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Alexander Skarsgård (“True Blood”), Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, “Boardwalk Empire,” the upcoming Superman film Man of Steel), Ben Gazzara (Saint Jack, They All Laughed), Emmanuelle Chriqui (You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, “Entourage”) with Oscar® nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, Iron Man 2) and Jason Statham (The Expendables, The Mechanic). 13 will also have an exclusive theatrical engagement starting October 28th.

The original 13 Tzameti (the Georgian word for “13”) won the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Babluani won best director at the Venice Film Festival.

In the film, Vince Ferro is a man in desperate circumstances. While on a quick fix-it job, he steals an envelope containing instructions for a mysterious job that promises a potential fortune. He assumes a false identity and follows the instructions, only to find himself a numbered participant in an underworld Russian roulette competition, where gamblers place bets on who’ll survive when the trigger is pulled.  The stakes are high, but the payout is more than he can resist. Many are competing for the first time, and a precious few have even returned to play again, but are his odds any better than other players in this most deadly game? What will it take to be the last man standing?

Bonus features on 13 Blu-ray™ and DVD will include a behind-the-scenes featurette, and the theatrical trailer.

Not, gonna lie, this movie looks great, and with that cast list, I'll certainly give it a shot.
