LOS ANGELES — Mar. 1, 2013 — For Immediate Release — Two pilots must set aside their differences and lead the way to rescue a comrade and prevent war in the action-packed drama Black Eagle, flying onto DVD March 12 from CJ Entertainment America.
After pulling a dangerous, daredevil stunt at an air show, hotshot elite Air Force pilot Tae-hun (Jung Ji-hoon, aka “Rain,” Ninja Assassin, Speed Racer) is kicked off the military’s top-notch Black Eagle air team and demoted into combat.
Arriving at his new unit, the talented but reckless fighter is quickly popular with the majority of the squad, even sparking a heated romance with the lovely Se-yeong, the wing’s best technician, whose faulty hearing is the only thing keeping her out of the air. But Tae-hun’s brash ways soon cause tension with the unit’s own ace top gun, the strait-laced Cheol-hui (Yu Jun-sang, In Another Country, The Day He Arrives).
When a North Korean MIG fighter enters their air space, a reconnaissance mission erupts into a fierce dogfight, leaving one team member dead and another missing. Now, with just minutes to pull off the biggest airborne mission in history, they must set aside their differences and lead the way to rescue their comrade and prevent war …
Black Eagle is presented in widescreen (aspect ratio: 2.35:1) and 5.1 Dolby Digital sound with English dub and subtitles. Special features include “Sortie’s Ready! 500 Days of Filming,” “Pilot G-Force Test” and “Characters” featurettes; behind-the-scenes; outtakes and trailers.

Sounds a little like Top Gun that was filmed here in San Diego, and F-15s instead of the Naval F-14s… Sounds really exciting! It even has English dubs that a lot of people will prefer, although I like subs better. Who remembers the old PC game called F-15 Strike Eagle?!
