Several films are headed home early thanks to theaters closing across the U.S. The latest to join that list, just one week after its theatrical debut, is David S. F. Wilson‘s comic adaptation Bloodshot.
The film follows Vin Diesel (Fast and the Furious franchise) as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation.
With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force -stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.
Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, and Guy Pearce also star in this action-packed adaptation based on the character created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton.
Sony Pictures is firmly committed to theatrical exhibition and we support windowing,” Sony’s Tom Rothman said. “This is a unique and exceedingly rare circumstance where theaters have been required to close nationwide for the greater good and Bloodshot is abruptly unavailable in any medium. Audiences will now have the chance to own Bloodshot right away and see it at home, where we are all spending more time. We are confident that — like other businesses hit hard by the virus — movie theaters will bounce back strongly, and we will be there to support them.”
Neal H. Moritz, Toby Jaffe, Dinesh Shamdasani, and Vin Diesel are producing with Dan Mintz, Louis G. Friedman, Yu Dong, Jeffrey Chan, Rita LeBlanc, Buddy Patrick, and Matthew Vaughn executive produce.
Bloodshot lands on home release on March 24th, from Sony Home Entertainment.
