Dwayne Johnson Stars In ‘Snitch’ Arriving This June On Blu-ray

Dwayne Johnson stars in the action-packed thriller, Snitch arriving on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), Digital Download, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View June 11 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.  I did not get a chance to watch Snitch in theaters, but I do like Dwayne Johnson and given that he’s starring in several films this year, I guess it only makes sense that I catch them all, right?  Well, regardless, the film has a more interesting premise than the average action film, and I have heard things that suggest this is closer to being a character drama than an action film.  I will find out this June I guess and really see how strong a film this is for The Rock.  Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.
