Good news for those of you who love action blockbusters! Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that London Has Fallen will be arriving in not only Blu-ray/DVD format, but also available for digital download. For those who don't want to wait for physical copies, the digital download format will come a few weeks earlier, on May 31st, while the movie will be available on digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on June 14th.
The film is the follow-up sequel to surprise hit, Olympus Has Fallen.
