News has reached KM UK that the 2007 film Resurrecting The Champ is set for a Blu-ray release in America this coming June.

Some parts of the world, notably Germany, had a Blu-ray version of the movie years ago but it appears that wasn’t the case back home in the US.  Now, a release as part of the MVD Marquee Collection is set for June 11th.

The hi-def home viewing solution includes some extras but they don’t look like anything new and are all in standard definition so must be lifted from the earlier DVD release.

blu-ray_cover_001For new comers, Resurrecting The Champ revolves around Josh Hartnett and Samuel L Jackson’s characters.  Josh is a newspaper sports reporter looking for a big story to make his name.  Samuel is a homeless man Josh stumbles across who claims to be a once-famous boxer with a tale to tell.  His he who he says he is?  It’s a film with boxing but is definitely not a boxing movie.

Kathryn is one of the many big names making up the supporting cast.  Director Rod Lurie has a habit of doing this with his films.  As Josh’s older, more successful writer, mother to his son, and estranged wife, Kathryn is the grown up in the relationship.  She’s also gorgeous in every shot.  A quadruple (or more) threat.  She has some great scenes with Josh.  Well worth checking in full HD.

There are various images and videos relating to Resurrecting The Champ already in KM UK The Gallery.  The Blu-ray box cover, above, has now been added.
