Coming to Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, November 29th, is director Renny Harlin's riveting drama 5 Days of War, which stars Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, and Emmanuelle Chriqui. We have an exclusive look at this action-packed international thriller, with an all-new interview from star Emmanuelle Chriqui. Check it out below.

Inspired by the real events of the swift, but devastating, five-day war between Russia and Georgia in 2008, this action-packed international thriller centers around an American journalist (Rupert Friend) and his cameraman (Richard Coyle) caught in the combat zone during the first Russian air strikes against Georgia. Rescuing Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a young Georgian schoolteacher from the attack, the two reporters agree to help reunite her with her family when she loses them in the chaos in exchange for serving as their interpreter. As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness, and document, the devastation from the full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians. They desperately attempt to broadcast the footage they've captured while under attack from the Russian soldiers and local mercenaries, but are met with resistance from American and international networks either shorthanded from covering the Beijing Olympics or simply fatigued by war news. The trio realizes their survival is paramount, so they can live to broadcast the truth.
