*Prior putting his wings on again to fight alongside Chris Evans in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” Anthony Mackie was last seen as a different kind of crime fighter on the big screen in “Triple 9.”
Directed by John Hillcoat, the crime thriller —- which arrives Tuesday (05-17-16) on Digital HD and May 31 on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand — centers on a veteran cop and his rookie nephew, who discover a shocking conspiracy that leads dangerously close to home. A bank robbery is just the tip of the iceberg when the two Atlanta cops begin suspecting that members of their own team are involved. Not knowing whom to trust and how deep the corruption goes, the clock is ticking as they try to uncover the truth — before they become the target for the next deadly job.
Mackie stars as Marcus Belmont, one of two corrupt cops involved in the tale of corruption and betrayal, along with fellow castmates Woody Harrelson (“True Detective,” “The Hunger Games” series), Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years a Slave,” “The Martian”), Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad,” “Need for Speed”), Norman Reedus (“The Walking Dead,” “The Boondock Saints”), Casey Affleck (“Out of the Furnace,” “Gone Baby Gone”) and Kate Winslet (“Steve Jobs,” ”Titanic”).
Also along for the ride are Clifton Collins Jr. (“Pacific Rim,” “Westworld”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies,” “The Choice”), Michael K. Williams (“12 Years a Slave,” “The Road”) and Gal Gadot (“Furious 7,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”).
In addition to the movie, which hit theaters back in February, the “Triple 9” video will include deleted scenes as well as glimpse at the making of what Variety called “a modern-day heist thriller with a diverse, high-wattage cast”
The release of “Triple 9” on video comes as Mackie brings his talent to HBO in “All The Way,” which is set to air on the channel on Saturday (May 21).
