Shooter makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD one week ahead of the film’s 15th anniversary of its theatrical release in 2007.

In development hell for well over a decade, the film is based on Stephen Hunter’s 1993 novel, Point of Impact. One of the things that screenwriter Jonathan Lemkin did was move the script out of the Vietnam War and into a contemporary setting. It certainly works for the film’s advantage to an extent. A TV series, based on the film, aired on USA for three seasons before getting the axe.

To mark the anniversary, the film will be available on a Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD SteelBook. It will also include a digital copy.


Mark Wahlberg and director Antoine Fuqua first teamed up for this standard action thriller, available for the first time in 4K UHD. Respected former Marine count and sniper Bob Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg) is pressed into service to stop an assassination attempt against the President. But the unthinkable occurs–he’s double-crossed and framed for the attempt. And so begins a high-tension race against every law enforcement agency in the country and a shadowy organization that wants him dead. Proving his innocence will be the most dangerous mission of his life.
