Synopsis:

The riveting tale that took America by storm is now an unstoppable force: Taps 25th Anniversary Edition packs an arsenal of extras including an all-new, on-camera interview with Timothy Hutton, an Audio Commentary, two Featurettes and more! "Unequivocally thought-provoking" (Variety) and "spiked with beautiful performances (Los Angeles Times) from a cast including Timothy Hutton, Tom Cruise, Sean Penn, and George C. Scott, this definitive edition of the jarring film delivers an emotional wallop!

When a fiercely devoted group of Military School cadets learn that their school is being sold to real estate developers, they refuse to accept defeat...instead choosing to rise up together to protect the Academy and their honor. But the brave young soldiers soon learn that the most courageous decisions can sometimes have unexpected - and even fatal - consequences!

A cautionary, thought-provoking tale about the conflicts that arise between small sacrifices and the big picture, the military drama Taps celebrates its 25th anniversary on September 12 with a special edition DVD from Fox Home Entertainment. When the future of an elite military academy is threatened by local condominium developers in search of lucrative real estate, the cadets take up arms to defend their home.

Things quickly spin out of their control, however, when the protest escalates to violence, and the young men are forced to examine their values in the face of a far broader world view. Starring Oscar®-winners George C. Scott (Best Actor, Patton, 1970), Timothy Hutton (Best Supporting Actor, Ordinary People, 1981) and Sean Penn (Best Actor, Mystic River, 2004), as well as Ronny Cox (Deliverance, Robocop) and superstar Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, M:i:III) in his second screen role, the Taps 25th Anniversary Edition DVD includes all-new bonus materials, including Timothy Hutton interviews, audio commentary from the director, featurettes, the original theatrical trailers and more. The Taps 25th Anniversary Edition DVD will be available for a suggested retail price of $19.98 U.S./$25.98 Canada. Prebook is August 16, 2006.
