The 2018 film “White Boy Rick“ starring Matthew McConaughey and Richie Merritt is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on December 25th via Sony. The film, based on a true story, was directed by Yann Demange. This co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brian Tyree Henry, Jonathan Majors, YG, Bruce Dern, Piper Laurie, Rory Cochrane, and RJ Cyler.
Tech specs for the release have not yet been officially announced, but I’m going to speculate on it getting 1080p in the 2.39:1 aspect (as theatrically shown) with a DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix – typical on Sony Blu-ray releases. I’ve reached out directed to Sony about this and should have a reply hopefully sometime soon. The Blu-ray is now available to pre-order over at Amazon and at Best Buy. The release will come with a Digital Copy of the film. Bonus materials set to be included on the release are listed below.
