(August 7, 2006 - Burbank, CA) – You can run, but he will catch you. You can hide, but he will find you. Sam Elliott ("We Were Soldiers," "Rough Riders," "Thank You For Smoking"), Timothy Hutton ("Kinsey," "Secret Window," "The General’s Daughter") and James Cromwell ("The Longest Yard," "Six Feet Under," "The Sum Of All Fears") star in the suspense thriller "Avenger," coming to DVD on October 3 from Warner Home Video. Based on the novel by Frederick Forsyth ("The Day of the Jackal") and executive-produced by Wolfgang Petersen ("Troy," "Poseidon"), "Avenger" is an intricately woven story that follows Cal Dexter’s (Elliott) transformation from decorated war veteran to secret gun for hire. As Dexter is busy chasing down thugs and war criminals, Frank McBride (Hutton), a CIA officer, is busy chasing him. Dexter quickly becomes both hunter and hunted as he traverses the world in search of justice! Cal Dexter’s (Elliott) duty during the Vietnam War was to locate and destroy the jungle hideouts of the enemy. But today he's nothing more than a simple attorney in small town New Jersey. Or so it seems to most. Covertly, he has been hired by a tycoon to track down and deliver justice to the man who killed the tycoon’s grandson, an American aid worker in Bosnia. Driven by the tragic deaths of his wife and daughter, Dexter accepts the mission that takes him around the world in search of vengeance. Meanwhile, CIA agents Frank McBride (Hutton) and Paul Devereaux (Cromwell) must stop him before his mission interferes with a CIA sting and throws the world into chaos. "Avenger," which originally aired on TNT on April 9, 2006, is priced at $19.98 SRP and has an order due date of August 29, 2006.
