With its two sizzling leads, Bandidas heats up the Old West with explosive action and scorching comedy, turning the traditional “cowboy” genre upside-down on DVD January 9th from Fox Home Entertainment for the suggested retail price of $27.98.
Starring super-sexy international sensations Salma Hayek (Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Frida) and Penelope Cruz (Vanilla Sky, Sahara) as a formidable pair of female bank robbers, whose bold, original performances light up the screen with charismatic appeal not seen since Butch and Sundance!
Joined by a high-caliber ensemble cast including Sam Shepard (Stealth, The Notebook), Steve Zahn (Sahara, Daddy Day Care) and Dwight Yoakam (Crank, Panic Room), Bandidas features a fun action-packed script by acclaimed French filmmaker Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Transporter) and Robert Mark Kamen (The Karate Kid).
Determined to avenge the deaths of their fathers, Sara Sandoval (Hayek) and Maria Alvarez (Cruz) vow to seize the ill-gotten gains of robber baron Tyler Jackson (Yoakam). So, with help from a retired bank robber (Shepard) and a jittery criminologist (Zahn), these two beauties become unlikely outlaws, blazing a trail of larceny and laughter across Mexico!
A rollicking buddy movie with voluptuous sex appeal, outrageous comedy and breathtaking stunts, Bandidas breaks the clichés of Western conventions and gender stereotypes, setting a new gold standard for the genre and utilizing its distinctly feminine wiles to redefine the wild frontier.
The Bandidas DVD is presented on a flipper disc that includes both widescreen and full screen versions. The disc features English Dolby Surround 5.1 and Spanish Dolby Surround sound as well as English and Spanish subtitles. Bonus materials include:
