Arriving on Blu-ray this coming Tuesday, July 7, 2015 is the post-apocalyptic drama film Maggie. Directed by Henry Hobson, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator Genysis), Abigail Breslin (Zombieland) and Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck). Special Features include: Director's Commentary, "Making Maggie" Featurette, Deleted Scenes, Cast/Crew Interviews and a Trailer Gallery.

In a role that is a complete opposite of his action-flicks, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Wade, a father who retrieves his daughter Maggie (played by Abigail Breslin) from a hospital in the city. Maggie has been infected with the Necroambulist virus that slowly turns people into flesh-eating zombies. Against the doctor's orders, Wade takes Maggie back home to their farmhouse. Fearing they'll be infected too, he sends Maggie's step-siblings, Bobby and Molly (played by Aidan and Carsen Flowers) to live with their aunt while Maggie spends her last days at home with him and her stepmother Caroline (played by Joely Richardson).

Abigail Breslin ("Maggie") and Arnold Schwarzenegger ("Wade") star in Lionsgate Home Entertainment's MAGGIE.

While Maggie tries to live a normal life by reconnecting with her friends, the virus is slowly getting stronger and she knows eventually it'll take over her. Wade loves his daughter, but he doesn't want her to suffer. He has two choices - let her take the government cocktail, which is a painful death or take matters into his own hands and help end her suffering.
