French rocker Johnny Hallyday takes the lead role in Sergio Corbucci's 1969 spaghetti western The Specialists. Hallyday plays a gunfighter who arrives in a one horse town seeking vengeance for the lynching of his brother.

The Specialists makes its UK home video debut on May 18th when Eureka Entertainment release it on blu-ray from a new 4k restoration.

Bonus features include an audio commentary by filmmaker and spaghetti western buff Alex Cox; a new and exclusive interview with author Austin Fisher; and a trailer. The first 2000 units come in a limited edition slipcase with a collector's booklet featuring new writing by western authority Howard Hughes on both the film, and the “French-western” sub-genre.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Notorious gunfighter Hud Dixon (Hallyday) arrives in Blackstone, a town where his brother was wrongfully accused of robbing a bank and lynched for it. As Hud seeks revenge, he starts to discover the truth behind the stolen loot, and has to contend with an idealistic sheriff, a beautiful and seductive female banker, a corrupt businessman and a one-armed Mexican bandit, who was once his friend.
