Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of season one of Amazon’s hit small-screen adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s acclaimed comic book series The Boys; check out the cover artwork and details below…
Karl Urban (Star Trek), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games), Antony Starr (American Gothic), and Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones) join forces to lay down the law in the highly-anticipated crime comedy, THE BOYS SEASON 1, available on Blu-RayTM and DVD on May 11 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Based on the gripping comic book created by Garth Ennis (PREACHER) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), THE BOYS follows a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys”, who make it their mission to take down corrupt superheroes “The Seven” with no more than their blue collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty. But in a world where superheroes abuse their celebrity for personal gain and are marketed and monetized by the powerful Vought Corporation, it’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to bring down the system.
The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and their formidable Vought backing.
The Boys features a cast that includes Karl Urban (Thor: Ragnarok), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games), Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad), Laz Alonso (Traffik), Antony Starr (American Gothic), Dominique McElligott (The Last Tycoon), Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Erin Moriarty (True Detective), Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence), Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) and Nathan Mitchell (iZombie).
