The critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning Australian cinema classic CHOPPER celebrates its 20th anniversary. With never before seen bonus footage and a digitally remastered master, overseen by the director, Chopper tells the story of the late Mark Brandon “Chopper” Read, real-life convict, bestselling author, and self-proclaimed “national icon”.
“I’m just a bloody normal bloke,” he says in the movie. “A normal bloke who likes a bit of torture!” Written and directed by Andrew Dominik, in his feature directorial debut, Chopper stars Eric Bana as the title character – recommended for the role by Chopper himself – and co-stars Vince Colosimo, Simon Lyndon, Kate Beahan and David Field.
With an arsenal of extra features and never-before-seen footage such as Eric Bana and director Andrew Dominik meeting the real Chopper while researching the film.
