The film, which is nominated for a total of six Academy Awards (including “Best Picture”), based on a book (written by Jessica Bruder) was directed by Chloé Zhao. This movie co-stars David StrathairnLinda May, and Charlene Swankie. It’s also worth noting that this film is, at this time, “Certified Fresh” over at Rotten Tomatoes based on critics’ reviews. The tech specs for the Blu-ray include a 1080p HD video presentation in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless surround sound. The release will include a digital code (copy) of the film. You can now finally find the Blu-ray listed for preorder over at retailers Best Buy, Target, and Walmart as well as online retailer Deep Discount. There’s no Amazon preorder listing yet and because Disney doesn’t seem to like them, it may be a while before you can purchase it from there but stay tuned for an update on that. The following bonus materials will be included with the Blu-ray release.

  • The Forgotten America
  • Deleted Scenes
    • Lunch Interrupted
    • A Gift From God
  • Telluride Premiere Q&A with Frances McDormand and Chloé Zhao

Also, there will not be a 4K UHD Blu-ray physical release however there will be a 4K digital release. Yes, I know. That’s typical. And finally, yes, I’m reporting this news late because Disney doesn’t send me any announcements. So, I’ve had to resort to finding my ways to get press releases on my own, plus there were not any preorder listings until just recently. That being said, below after the break you can find the trailer for the film and the full details regarding this upcoming release.
