Both releases also include a digital copy of the film allowing you to transfer the entire movie onto a portable device such as your iPod or laptop.
Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz (Gothika, Assassins) and starring Vin Diesel as Hugo Cornelius, a mercenary, Melanie Thierry as a genetically altered woman called Aurora and Michelle Yeaoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Sunshine) as Sister Rebecca, Babylon A.D features a fast-paced, futuristic storyline that's guaranteed to get your adrenalin pumping.
Set in the post-apocalyptic future, Toorop (Vin Diesel) is a mercenary hired to deliver a package from the ravages of post-apocalyptic Eastern Europe to a destination in the teeming megalopolis of New York City. The secret package is a mysterious young woman carrying an organism with potential to become the next Messiah - and everybody wants to get their hands on it.
