Three Chuck Norris action classics will roundhouse kick Blu-ray exclusively at Wal-Mart this summer.
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Missing in Action,' 'Missing in Action 2,' and 'The Delta Force' for Blu-ray on June 5.
'Missing in Action' - American servicemen are still being held captive in Vietnam - and it's up to one man to bring them home in this blistering, fast-paced action/adventure starring martial arts superstar Chuck Norris. Following a daring escape from a Vietnamese POW camp, Special Forces Colonel James Braddock (Norris) is on a mission to locate and save remaining MIAs. Aided by a beautiful State Department official (Lenore Kasdorf) and a former Army buddy (M. Emmet Walsh), Braddock amasses top secret information and state-of-the-art weaponry. Now this one-man army is prepared to blast his way into Vietnam... but will he be able to blast his way back out?
'Missing In Action 2: The Beginning' - During a rescue mission in Vietnam, Colonel Braddock (Chuck Norris) and five of his men are captured and placed in a torturous work camp ruled by a ruthless, maniacal warden. But like a cunning tiger waiting for the right time to pounce on his prey, Braddock seizes an opportunity to spring into action... and becomes a one-man fighting machine deadset on freeing his men at any cost.
'The Delta Force' - Political extremists have taken innocent people hostage... and only super-soldiers Chuck Norris and Lee Marvin can rescue them in this "astounding mix of fact, fantasy and heavy-duty adventure" (Variety). Co-starring Maltin Balsam and Shelley Winters, 'The Delta Force' is 130 nonstop minutes of explosive, wall-to-wall action! When a U.S. passenger plane is seized by vicious hijackers and taken to Beirut, the president calls in "The Delta Force" - a crack team of commandos led by Colonel Nick Alexander (Marvin) and Major Scott McCoy (Norris). Against all odds, the men blast into the compound and - taking no prisoners - rescue the hostages. But the mission is not yet over. A few remaining passengers are being "escorted" to Teheran, initiating a desperate race against time as Alexander and McCoy try to save them - and avenge America's honor - before it's too late.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, and suggested list price for the Blu-rays is still undetermined at this time.
