The Liam Neeson action thriller The Marksman will be available for digital purchase starting April 27 and will shoot to Blu-ray and DVD May 11 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Directed by Academy Award nominee Robert Lorenz (American Sniper, Mystic River), the film’s supporting cast includes Katheryn Winnick (The Dark Tower, “Big Sky”), Juan Pablo Raba (Peppermint, “Narcos”), Teresa Ruiz (“Narcos: Mexico,” “Here on Earth”) and Jacob Perez (Papa Bear, Willy Goes Way Back).
Neeson plays Jim Hanson, an ex-Marine and hardened Arizona rancher who simply wants to be left alone as he tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when he witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Perez) and his mother (Ruiz) fleeing from a band of assassins sent by a ruthless drug cartel. After being caught in a shoot-out, Miguel’s mother begs Jim to take her son to the safety of their family in Chicago. Defying law-enforcement, Jim and Miguel hit the road and slowly begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while the cartel’s relentless assassins blaze a bloody trail, hot on their heels.
Extras include a making-of featurette with interviews with filmmakers and cast.
