Age of Heroes (2011) starring Sean Bean - Alec Trevelyan/006 in the 1995 Bond film GoldenEye (1995) - is released in Sweden by SF Home Entertainment on 11th April 2012. (First released on DVD in the UK on 13th June 2011.)

Age of Heroes is an all-guns-blazing, World War II action film based on the incredible true story of the British special ops division 30 Commando, starring Sean Bean and Danny Dyer. Following the first mission of this elite unit, formed by 'James Bond' author Ian Fleming (played by James D´Arcy) and a precursor to the modern day SAS, AGE OF HEROES' 30 Commando take on the might of the Fuhrer's armed forces in a thrilling life-or-death operation.

The film follows the exploits of Corporal Rains (Dyer) as he is inducted into Fleming's newly formed 30 Commando, where he and the rest of the platoon are put through intensive training under the watchful eye of Sean Bean's Major Jones. Their skills and endurance are pushed to the limit as they prepare for their first highly classified and dangerous mission: to parachute into occupied Norway and capture vital radar technology that is key to winning the war. But the plan goes spectacularly wrong, and the commandos find themselves in a pitched battle to reach the border as vicious Nazi Commander Teichman (Eric Madsen) and the Germans' deadly 5th Alpine Division tighten the noose.
