Rollerball (1975) Blu-ray: Action-packed sci-fi gem!

Scorpion Releasing will be releasing Director Norman Jewison’s intelligent, futuristic vision, Rollerball (1975) on Blu-ray. Available for purchase at Ronin Flix.

The year is 2018. There are no wars. There is no crime. There is only….the Game. In a world where ruthless corporations reign supreme, this vicious and barbaric “sport” is the only outlet for the pent-up anger and frustrations of the masses. Tuned to their televisions, the people watch “Rollerball”: A brutal mutation of football, motocross, and hockey. Jonathan E. is the champion player – a man too talented for his own good. The Corporation has taken away the woman Jonathan loves, but they can’t take away his soul – even if the diabolical corporate head tells him he better retire…. or suffer the old-fashioned way. With its surreal imagery and tense action sequences, Rollerball grips you by the heart – and never lets you go!

Starring James Caan, John Houseman, Maud Adams.

Jewison’s extreme-sports future shock bundles together a paranoid political thriller, a McLuhan-drunk media satire, ultraviolent exploitation, reverent respect for faddish athletic pursuits and enough zoom shots to make Robert Altman blush.
