'The Rocketeer' Comes to Blu-Ray December 13th! 1

One of my personal favorite comic book adaptions is headed for Blu-ray this December, and I couldn’t be more excited. Disney is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of director Joe Johnston’s adventure film, ‘The Rocketeer’, starring Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Timothy Dalton, and Alan Arkin. This will be a great Christmas gift for the comic book fans and film fans in your family. Joe Johnston recently released ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ this summer to critical acclaim, and this film is very much in the same vein of the Marvel comics film. Disney has released a new press release for the release, which you can see after the jump. ‘The Rocketeer’ will be released December 13!


Synopsis: Celebrate the 20th anniversary of director Joe Johnston’s
Captain America: The First Avenger) action-filled, witty The Rocketeer. Now with
state-of-the-art digital restoration and enhanced high definition sound, experience
it as it jets off for the first time on Disney Blu-ray™.

The discovery of a top-secret jetpack hurls test pilot Cliff Secord into a daring
adventure of mystery, suspense, and intrigue! Cliff encounters an assortment of
ruthless villains, led by a Hollywood screen star who is a secret Nazi spy. With the
help of his actress girlfriend, the young pilot battles enormous odds to defeat his
foes who are anxious to use the device in an evil plan to rule the world. The
dangerous mission transforms the ordinary young man into an extraordinary hero.
