January 21, 2016
Currently available for purchase at all Digital HD retailers and simultaneously available via On Demand on select digital platforms such as Amazon, Vudu, Xbox, Playstation, Google Play and MGO, Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq will be available on Blu-ray + Digital HD and DVD + Digital on January 26.
Nominated for four NAACP Image Awards, the film stars Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Teyonah Parris, Jennifer Hudson, Steve Harris, Harry Lennix, D.B. Sweeney, La La Anthony, Angela Bassett as “Miss Helen,” with John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.
Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq is a searing satire of gun violence in America inspired by the ancient Greek play “Lysistrata.” Touted as “the freshest film of 2015” by The Village Voice, Chi-Raq transports Aristophanes’ classic battle of the sexes to Chicago’s South Side, where the death of a child by a gang member’s stray bullet inspires a group of women to organize against the ongoing violence. From acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee, Chi-Raq is the first original feature production from Amazon Studios, which brought the world the Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-winning series “Transparent.”
Chi-Raq is a powerful and timely tale of a community at war with itself, with scathing commentary on gun culture, black-on-black violence, corrupt politicians and urban decay. Two rival gangs, led by Chi-Raq (Nick Cannon) and Cyclops (Wesley Snipes), are locked in bloody combat on the streets of Chicago, until the beautiful Lysistrata (Teyonah Parris) persuades the women of the Spartan and Trojan gangs to swear off sex with their men until the fighting stops. Featuring raw, original music by Cannon, Chi-Raq ignites a provocative dialogue on the nature of race, sex and violence in America and around the world.
The Chi-Raq home entertainment release includes “The Making of Chi-Raq” featurette, deleted scenes, extended scenes and a music video for “We Gotta Do Better” from Kevon Carter. The Chi-Raq Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively. Digital suggested retail prices will be $14.99 (HD) and $12.99 (SD).
