From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment: MindGamers

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Let the mind games begin. Go inside the human brain like never before in the edgy, adrenaline-filled sci-fi adventure MindGamers, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand on May 2, 2017 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Starring Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Tom Payne ("The Walking Dead"), Melia Kreiling (Guardians of the Galaxy), Dominique Tipper ("The Expanse") and Ryan Doyle (Freerunner), MindGamers pushes new boundaries and goes beyond the ordinary, providing an incredible visual and stimulatory experience.  Be the first to own the film on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD, and go deeper into the making of the film with exclusive bonus features including a behind-the-scenes featurette!  

MindGamers follows a group of brilliant young students who create a wireless neural network, linking multiple minds via a quantum computer.  Capable of transferring motor-skills from one brain to another, they have brought into existence the first shareware for human motor-skills.  They freely spread this technology, believing it to be a first step towards a new equality and intellectual freedom.  But they soon discover that they themselves are part of a much greater plan and more sinister experiment, as dark forces emerge that threaten to subvert this technology into a means of mass control.

The global premiere of MindGamers took place last night where 1,000 individuals across the US were the first to participate in a neuroscience experiment on an unprecedented scale. Attendees and their brains were connected in real time using brain-computer interface technology, resulting in a world-record for the largest number of minds connected simultaneously to the cloud.

The film will be available on Blu-ray with DIGITAL HD and UltraViolet and DVD.

  • Blu-ray unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6x the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound.
