Stephen King’s THE STAND Headed To Blu-ray This August!
While we patiently wait for that new television adaptation of Stephen King‘s THE STAND with James Marsden (DISTURBING BEHAVIOR), Amber Heard (DRIVE ANGRY), Whoopi Goldberg (JUMPIN’ JACK FLASH) and Greg Kinnear (AUTO FOCUS), Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (USPHE) will release Mick Garris (SLEEPWALKERS) helmed 1994 mini-series this August on Blu-ray!
In King’s epic vision of an apocalyptic future, the few survivors of a plague-ravaged world must choose sides in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil that will decide the fate of humanity. As the followers of demonic Randall Flagg plot to rebuild the world in his dark image, a courageous foursome embarks on a heroic mission against Flagg and his minions. Fighting overwhelming odds, they will risk more than their lives as they take one desperate last stand against evil.
