New DVD Release Date for Channing Tatum's 'Battle in Seattle'

Blockbuster DVD Graphic for Channing Tatum's 'Battle in Seattle'Channing Tatum's drama 'Battle in Seattle' just had it's last theatrical release today in (Coral Gables, Florida), where it's playing at the Bill Cosford Cinema.

Since the film's theatrical releases have officially come to a close and thanks to Leigh over at Michelle Rodriguez's official site, I can now share some exclusive details about the upcoming release of the film on DVD.

'Battle in Seattle' will be released on DVD for rental EXCLUSIVELY at Blockbuster Video on January 27, 2009. It will then be available for purchase in retail stores in March 10, 2009.

It will be available in both DVD and Blu-ray format. The Blu-ray retail price is $29.98, and you will be able to pre-order it at Amazon for $20.99. I've been told that fans may want to hold off on ordering it from Amazon, because there are also plans for a 2-disc special edition DVD in March as well (on top of the regular release at retailers). I can't reveal any specifics on that just yet. When I get the details, I'll definitely let you all know.

For any newcomers who don't know about the film...'Battle in Seattle' is based on one of the most incendiary political uprisings in a generation. The Stuart Townsend-directed film, that (in addition to Channing Tatum) also stars Charlize Theron, Andre "3000" Benjamin, Jennifer Carpenter, Woody Harrelson, Martin Henderson, Ray Liotta, and Michelle Rodriguez, takes an in-depth look at the five days that rocked the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization.

DVD for Channing Tatum's 'Battle in Seattle'What began as a peaceful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-scale riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared off peaceful and unarmed protesters against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard. Channing Tatum plays one of the outnumbered riot cops in the film.

Told through true events, 'Battle in Seattle' seamlessly intertwines compelling points of view from a cross-section of society "from protesters and police to delegates and doctors" with no perspective left untold from those who intentionally or accidentally find themselves on the streets of Seattle on those last days of the millennium. Dramatic theatrical performances merge with actual footage of the event to bring these contrasting viewpoints to the screen.

Fans can check out tons of photos from ‘Battle in Seattle’ in the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Photo Gallery and can watch trailers, cast interviews, and exclusive clips of Channing Tatum in the movie on our Youtube Video Channel.

Be on the look out for 'Battle in Seattle' on DVD at your local Blockbuster next month and be ready to buy it in March!!!
