Five men are sent on a deadly black-ops mission across Europe to avenge the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Steven Spielberg’s Oscar®-nominated action-thriller Munich, coming to Blu-ray™for the first time ever on February 10, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Digitally remastered and fully restored from original high resolution 35mm film elements, Munich celebrates its 10th anniversary and will be available on Blu-ray™ for a limited time exclusively at Best Buy.

Directed by three-time Oscar-winner Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List), Munich was written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winner Tony Kushner (“Angels in America,” Lincoln) and Oscar-winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), based on George Jonas’book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team. The riveting international thriller stars Eric Bana (The Hulk), Daniel Craig (Skyfall), Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech), Ciarán Hinds (“Game of Thrones”), Mathieu Kassovitz (Amelie), Hanns Zischler(Ripley’s Game) and Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons).
Inspired by real events, Munich reveals the gripping story of an ultra-secret squad assigned by the Israeli government to track down and assassinate 11 terrorists believed to have planned the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics—and the personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it.
