Act of Valor Blu-ray to Support Operation Homefront
The “ACT OF VALOR” Blu-ray (and DVD) will hit shelves just before Father’s Day on June 5th. With its coming release, Twentieth Century Fox, Relativity Media and The Bandito Brothers have pledged to give a portion of the sales proceeds from the Blu-ray and DVD to Operation Homefront, an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
“’ACT OF VALOR’ is a great film depicting the tremendous skill, dedication, and professionalism of our men and women in uniform,” said Jim Knotts, President and CEO of Operation Homefront.
“The filmmakers should be commended for giving Americans a realistic look at the Navy SEALs. We’re grateful that they are saluting these heroes with their support of our efforts to assist military families and wounded warriors.”
“Our main objective in making “ACT OF VALOR” was to honor the community, brotherhood and family sacrifice of our men and women in uniform. We can’t think of a better way to continue doing that than by partnering with Operation Homefront, which is a truly admirable organization that directly supports the service members and families of those that put their life on the line for us every day,” said co-directors Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh.
An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, “ACT OF VALOR” stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside actors Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nester Serrano, in a film like no other in Hollywood’s history. A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operation, “ACT OF VALOR” features a riveting story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.
“ACT OF VALOR” combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the-minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure film–showcasing the skills, training and tenacity of the greatest action heroes of them all: real Navy SEALs.
Produced and directed by former Baja 1000 champion Mike “Mouse” McCoy and former stuntman Scott Waugh, and written by Kurt Johnstad (300), the film opened #1 in America when it was theatrically-released by Relativity Media on February 24, 2012.
