– Commissions Earned –

The 2006 film Man of the Year starring the late Robin Williams will be making its Blu-ray Disc debut on November 3rd — appropriately enough — via Sony. The film, which was written & directed by Barry Levinson, co-starred Laura LinneyLewis Black, Christopher Walken, and Jeff Goldblum. Tech specs for the release have not yet been detailed, nor is it known if this will contain bonus materials, but stay tuned for a possible update on that soon. Considering it is a Presidential election year, it’s not surprising that this film is finally making its debut to the Blu-ray format, however, it is a bit unexpectedly coming with it would seem very little to no promotion. You can now find the Blu-ray Disc available for preorder over at Amazon.

Lastly, my inner film nerd is going to take over for a moment here. I have to say it’s a bit weird that Sony is now distributing this film, looking back on it? In fact, as you’ll notice on IMDb this film was released theatrically and on home video in the United States originally by Universal. So, I guess they [Universal] have let the rights to the film go to Sony? Interesting. Regardless, I have to say it’s very nice to see that someone is finally bringing this underrated Robin Williams film out on the format.
