I’ve been following Fouad Mikati’s “Operation: Endgame” from the very beginning, back when it was still called “Rogues Gallery”. It now looks like the film is headed to DVD after a brief theatrical release at the Laemmle’s Sunset 5 Theaters in Los Angeles starting on July 16th. Yup, just one theater. If you aren’t able to catch it then, the film will be arriving on DVD and Blu-ray on July 27th courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment. No trailer yet, though, which is disappointing. DVD and Blu-ray cover art and specs below.
Operation: Endgame centers around two rival teams of government assassins, who work out of a top-secret underground facility and use code names from the Tarot deck. When new hire “The Fool” (Anderson) joins the group, he arrives for his first day only to discover that the boss has been murdered and the office has been locked down and turned into a ticking time bomb. He must survive his ambitious co-workers, find the killer, and discover a way out before the whole place explodes.
The film’s impressive supporting cast includes such luminaries as Maggie Q (Live Free or Die Hard, Mission: Impossible 3, Rush Hour 2), Adam Scott (“Party Down,” Step Brothers), Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Beth Grant (Crazy Heart, Henry Poole Is Here), Bob Oedenkirk (“Breaking Bad,” “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job”), Michael Hitchcock (Waiting For Guffman, A Mighty Wind), with Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible, Pulp Fiction, “Gravity”), and Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development,” The Hangover).
Bonus features on both the DVD and Blu-ray include:
