Cinedigm: KLONDIKE... On Blu-ray/DVD


From Executive Producer Ridley Scott
Discovery Channel’s First-Ever Scripted Series
KLONDIKE

Based on actual events, Klondike tells the story of the last great Gold Rush in history. In 1897 two friends make the perilous journey through North American wilderness to the Klondike boom town Dawson City, "The Paris of the North" where murder, revenge, riches and redemption await.
 
Headlined by an all-star cast including Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), Abbie Cornish (RoboCop), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) and Augustus Prew (Kick-Ass 2), and executive produced by Academy Award® nominee Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise), the action-packed mini-series Klondike arrives on Blu-ray and DVD June 10 from Cinedigm and Discovery Communications.


Originally having premiered on Discovery, Klondike dives into the brutal, thrilling, get-rich-or-die-trying world of the late 1890s gold rush.  Based on Charlotte Grey’s best-selling book, Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich In The Klondike, the mini-series was directed by Simon Cellan Jones (Boardwalk Empire, The Borgias), and follows two men, Bill Haskell (Madden) and Byron Epstein (Prew), who risk everything in the hopes of finding gold in the Yukon.

A two-disc set, the Blu-ray and DVD also features exclusive cast interviews, behind-the-scenes looks and a special addition entitled Discovering Klondike that explores the fascinating history of Yukon’s gold rush and how it was brought to the screen for Discovery Channel’s Klondike.

We watched this, we were entertained... it went a little stray on the story for us in the end.
