Mark Hamill stars in UK thriller 'Airbourne': DVD release details

The UK thriller Airbourne will be hitting R2 DVD on July 23rd through Chelsea Films. The film marks the first time Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, has had a starring role in a British flick, and is about a routine flight that doesn't go quite according to plan. The film also features Julian Glover, who you will recognize from Game of Thrones, and Alan 'Nemesis' Ford (Snatch), and was directed by Dominic Burns. You can check out the trailer, promo pics and some stills below.

As a severe storm front rapidly closes in on the UK, all flights out of East Midlands airport are cancelled – all save Atlantic Sky Airways Flight 686, bound for New York. Shortly after take-off, several passengers become concerned when one of their number inexplicably goes missing. Their anxieties are further increased when it becomes apparent that the flight has veered off course and it is revealed that the plane is carrying an interesting item of cargo: a rare and extremely valuable ancient Chinese vase. The assumption is that terrorists are responsible, but nobody on board is showing their hand – for now. With tensions rising amongst the passengers and crew, violence soon breaks out, forcing those behind the deadly plot to expose their identities.
