Strap yourself in as RocknRolla arrives on Blu-ray and DVD Jan. 27 from Warner Home Video.  This action film takes a dangerous ride into high crime and low life in contemporary London, where real estate has supplanted drugs as the biggest market, and criminals are its most enthusiastic entrepreneurs.

When a wealthy foreign mobster moves into London gangster Lenny Cole’s (Tom Wilkinson) turf, a small-timer (Gerard Butler) and his crew think they can play both sides and become big time. Add a hard-as-ice accountant (Thandie Newton), a rocker playing dead to boost sales, wannabe music moguls (Jeremy Piven and Chris Bridges), a missing painting and a mosh of money and muscle, and you’ve got a real RocknRolla.

From Director Guy Ritchie (Snatch,Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), RocknRolla features an all-star cast including Gerard Butler (300, P.S. I Love You), Thandie Newton (Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness), Academy AwardTM nominee Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton, Batman Begins) and Emmy AwardTM Winner Jeremy Piven (HBO’s Entourage, Old School).
