SANTA MONICA, CA – A great warrior in a lost land is about to find his destiny when TUROK: SON OF STONE charges onto DVD for the first time February 5th from Genius Products and Classic Media. Presented by The Weinstein Company, this Gold Key Production draws on the original 1950s comic book series, as well as influences ranging from Frank Miller to Akira Kurosawa, to create a dark, intense, epic reimagining of Turok®’s origin story. For the generation of fans who grew up on Turok video games as well as new devotees of the legendary franchise, this film is a chance to peer into the heart of the hero — and witness the birth of the legend. Turok gamers will love this return to the original story.
Timed to coincide with the property’s landmark re-launch, the TUROK: SON OF STONE DVD features the vocal talents of Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers, Law and Order: SVU), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Cree Summer (A Different World) and Irene Bedard (Pocahontas).
TUROK: SON OF STONE is directed by Frank Squillace (X-Men: The Animated Series), Curt Geda (Marvel’s Ultimate Avengers), Dan Riba (Batman Beyond).
Tad Stones (Hellboy: Blood and Iron) is supervising director. Evan Baily (Invader Zim) produced the film. Tony Bedard, whose credits include comic book series “Negation” and “Route 666,” wrote the screenplay from a story co-written with Baily. Michael Uslan (Batman Begins) and Deborah Dugan are Executive Producers.
During 20 years in exile, Turok has become a powerful and feared warrior. He now returns home to find his village destroyed and his family slaughtered at the hands of the ruthless tyrant Chichak. On a mission of vengeance, Turok must journey to the Lost Land, a savage place forgotten by time, where primeval beasts hunt all who enter. Turok will face his greatest battle as he fights man-eating dinosaurs, merciless cave dwellers, and the darkness inside himself to take revenge on his sworn enemy. In this epic journey, Turok will find his destiny. In this Lost Land… A legend is born.
The DVD contains exclusive bonus materials including an in-depth look at the Turok property from comic book to video game and now an animated movie. The DVD also includes a commentary by the creators of the film. TUROK: SON OF STONE will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.95.
