  • Umbrella is releasing the Pusher trilogy on Blu-ray in September.

    Scandinavia’s answer to TRAINSPOTTING” – The Independent (London)

    Together for the first time with English subs on blu-ray is the Pusher trilogy!

    Only available from the Umbrella webstore, the Pusher Collector's Edition includes:

    48 page bound book - Pusher a collection of behind-the-scenes, experiences and art
    Custom designed outer rigid slipcase
    8 poster cards
    2 x A3 reversible posters
    Limited Edition Numbered release
    Before bringing the world his Neo-Noir masterpiece DRIVE, director Nicolas Winding Refn chronicled the seedy underbelly of crime with his seminal PUSHER TRILOGY.

    Starting in 1996 with his debut film, and the first film in the series, PUSHER is the story of a small-time drug dealer named Frank (Kim Bodnia) who after having a heroin deal go wrong, find himself in massive debt to drug baron Milo (Zlatko Buric). The pressure mounts on Frank as he attempts to repay Milo.

    After working with the legendary author Hubert Selby Jr. (Requiem for a Dream) on the screenplay for his 2003 film Fear X, which starred John Turturro (Barton Fink) in the leading role, Nicolas returned to the PUSHER story with 2004’s PUSHER II: WITH BLOOD ON MY HANDS, which sees Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange) return to his role as Tonny. Just released from prison, Tonny tries to gain the respect of his father, the Duke, a notorious gangster who has nothing but contempt for his son. As he tries to repay an old prison debt, his mistakes run him further afoul of his father.

    2005 heralds the release of the final film in the trilogy, PUSHER III: I’M THE ANGEL OF DEATH. Milo, now middle-aged, is forced to contend with a new order of young hoods to move a shipment of ecstasy that arrives in place of the heroin he was expecting. In order to maintain his dominance over the Copenhagen underworld, Milo must survive one of the most harrowing days of his life.

    Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

    • Might need to get this. For some reason I've never bothered to watch the third one.

                Personally I reckon part 3 is the best one.

                    Oh yeah, I see that now.

                    They should have included BLEEDER in that set (PUSHER 4: BLEEDER)

                    I have a French blu of BLEEDER but needless to say it's not English friendly.

                    • There is apparently a scandinavian Blu of Bleeder also, but that is not english friendly either.

                      I bought it though, as the old DVD is not exactly top notch.
