According to DVDActive, the Unrated Edition of HANNIBAL RISING (review) will
be hitting stores on
June 5th. The film stars Aaron Thomas as the young
Hannibal Lecter. Special features and the final artwork have yet to surface,
but we'll keep you updated. Based on the
book by Thomas Harris, Mischa and
Hannibal (Gaspard Ulliel), baby brother and sister, are inseparable; it is their
love for each other that ties their bond. Their companionship is forever
binding, until, with their family, while hiding from the Nazi war machine a
twisted set of circumstance sets the pace for a most vicious attack on the
future of one Hannibal Lecter for the sworn vengeance for the brutal killing of
his baby sister.

Years later, we find Hannibal, the teenager, setting up in Paris, and living with
his aunt Lady Murasaki Shikibu (Li Gong) and studying at medical school here
he finds his forte. Still searching for his sister's murderers, still bitter and still
ever hopeful of satisfying his desire for retribution. This chance arrives, and
soon we are to learn that for a pound of flesh lost a pound of flesh must be
repaid. This is the horrific tale of justice and honour, a young mans growing
pains that will have the guilty paying with more than just flesh and bone. This
is the up and rising tale of the young Hannibal, prey you do not meet him, for
meat you shall be to him. Taste his wroth.
