Preview- Who Dares Wins (Special Edition DVD/Bluray)

Decades before Ant Middleton screamed at super fit estate agents in Snowdonia, the SAS were relatively unknown. Until 1980’s Iranian Embassy Siege put them on the front page of every newspaper. Who Dares Wins producer Euan Lloyd lived near the Embassy and as the SAS stormed the building, he watched the live news coverage and decided to pop over to watch. As soon as it ended Lloyd phoned his lawyer registering several movie titles for films about the SAS including Who Dares Wins.

This iconic movie is out now on DVD and Blu-ray in an Uncut Special Edition with a fold-out double-sided artwork poster by the legendary Graham Humphreys. When an anti-nuclear group resorts to terror to secure their ends, it takes the SAS to deal with them…as only the SAS can. Lewis Collins plays Peter Skellen, an SAS Captain sent to join the terrorists who are led by Frankie Leith (Judy Davis). Skellen joins as an undercover agent as the terrorists attack the London residence of the American Secretary of State. Only the SAS can save the VIP hostages…because only they dare. (And because they are told to by their chain of command).

Fans of the film include Stanley Kubrick and Ronald Reagan, who requested it have a special screening for ‘friends and cabinet members’ at the White House. In America the film was released with the title The Final Option. Soldiers from the SAS assisted in the production of the film but weren’t supposed to perform stunts for the SAS assault. When the crew had the scene set up with helicopters and stuntmen at the ready the SAS offered to do the scene instead which director Ian Sharp jumped at.

You can pre-order now on Bluray and DVD.

Extras: • Audio Commentary from Producer Euan Lloyd and Director Ian Sharp with Jonathan Sothcott • 'The Making of Who Dares Wins'- The Electric Theatre Show • Trailers • The Last of the Gentleman Producers • Fold-Out Double-Sided Graham Humphreys Artwork Poster.
