Eureka Entertainment are to release Wild Orchid, a tale of sex, passion and erotic taboos set against the backdrop of the rich and powerful starring Mickey Rourke and Jacqueline Bisset, on Blu-ray in a Dual Format edition for the first time in the UK on 8 February 2016.

Set in the sultry splendor of Rio de Janeiro, Wild Orchid stars Mickey Rourke (9 1/2 Weeks), Jacqueline Bisset (Bullitt) and supermodel Carre Otis in a "torrid" (Variety) adventure of the senses. Filled with "exotic settings" (The Hollywood Reporter), it is a hypnotic odyssey that will leave you breathless and spellbound.

Beautiful young attorney Emily Reed (Otis) travels to Rio to work with international negotiator Claudia Lirones (Bisset) on a multimillion-dollar deal. But once exposed to the raw sensuality of her surroundings, Emily is increasingly drawn into a world of erotic fantasy. Eager to guide Emily through this underworld is Claudia's old flame Wheeler (Rourke). Mysterious and seductive Wheeler unleashes Emily's most primitive desires... even as she threatens to unlock his world-weary heart.

From director Zalman King (Red Shoe Diaries, Two Moon Junction) comes a tale of sex, passion and erotic taboos set against the backdrop of the rich and powerful.

Wild Orchid will be released in a Dual Format edition (Blu-ray & DVD), on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, on 8th February 2015 by Eureka Entertainment at the RRP of £17.95.
