Mechanic: Resurrection has been announced by Lionsgate Home Entertainment, scheduled for a November 22nd, 2016 release on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD.

Philip Shelby and Tony Mosher penned the screenplay for this action thriller.

Mechanic: Resurrection was directed by Dennis Gansel.

The movie has a generally poor critical reception with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 26%,

However it did better with the public, earning an IMDb score of 5.7/10.

Mechanic: Resurrection saw some success in the local cinema, taking in $21.2M at the US box office.

It was pretty big overseas though, taking in a worldwide total over $109M.

Planned features for the disc include a 1080p video encode presented at 2.40:1, with Dolby Atmos object based audio soundtrack.
