HEINEKEN. Starring Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, The Elephant Man, Thor), the action-packed caper film will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray beginning April 14, 2015.
SYNOPSIS: In 1983, a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire (Hopkins). The shocking capture--by gunpoint on the streets of Amsterdam--resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. It was truly the perfect crime…until they got away with it.

HEINEKEN also stars Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation, Clash of the Titans, Wrath of the Titans), Jim Sturgess (21, Cloud Atlas, Across the Universe, Stonehearst Asylum) and Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s “True Blood,” Knights of
Badassdom, Don’t Fade Away).
