Celebrate the 25th Anniversar​y of Hoosiers on Blu-ray June 5


An All New Blu-ray Perfectly Timed For Father's Day Coming On June 5, 2012
From director David Anspaugh, one of the most legendary sports movies of all time is being released in an all new Blu-ray from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Based on the true story of the Milan High School basketball team, HOOSIERS boasts an all-star cast that includes the likes of Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey, and Academy Award® nominee Dennis Hopper. The film was recently hailed as the #1 sports movie of all time by The Los Angeles Times, as determined by nearly 1,400 of its readers who participated in a user poll.
Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) is a volatile basketball coach with a dark past who arrives in a small, rural Indiana town to attempt to lead the high school team to victory. This group of underdogs needs all the help they can get, and no one would have ever suspected that it would come from the unlikely duo of Dale and his newly hired assistant coach, the town's recovering alcoholic, Shooter (Dennis Hopper). Under Dale and Shooter's guidance, the Hickory team surprises their town - and themselves - by not only becoming an unstoppable team during the basketball season, but also taking home the 1952 State Championship.
