Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just released Black Adam, the DC Superhero action-adventure film starring Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji, Moana), on participating digital platforms; the film arrives January 3 on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Jaume Collet-Serra directed the film from a screenplay by Adam Sztykiel, Rory Haines, and Sohrab Noshirvani, based on Bill Parker and C.C. Beck’s comic book character “Black Adam.”
In the film, nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
In addition to Johnson as Black Adam, the film also stars Aldis Hodge (City on a Hill, One Night in Miami) as Hawkman; Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) as Atom Smasher; Sarah Shahi (Sex/Life, Rush Hour 3) as Adrianna; Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express, The Mummy) as Ishmael; Quintessa Swindell (Voyagers, Trinkets) as Cyclone; Bodhi Sabongui (A Million Little Things) as Amon; and Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia!, James Bond franchise) as Dr. Fate.
