Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio and one really angry bear are heading to Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'The Revenant' for Blu-ray on April 19. An Ultra HD Blu-ray version will also be released on that same day.
Leonardo DiCaprio gives "a virtuoso performance" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) in Oscar Winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s ('Birdman') cinematic masterpiece. Inspired by true events, 'The Revenant' follows the story of legendary explorer Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) on his quest for survival and justice. After a brutal bear attack, Glass is left for dead by a treacherous member of his hunting team (Tom Hardy; 'Mad Max: Fury Road'). Against extraordinary odds, and enduring unimaginable grief, Glass battles a relentless winter in uncharted terrain. This "boldly original" (Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch) epic adventure captures the extraordinary power of the human spirit in an immersive and visceral experience "unlike anything you have ever seen" (Jake Hamilton, FOX-TV).
The Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack. Meanwhile, the Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack will feature 2160p video and a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack. Supplements will include: "A World Unseen" – A Documentary of The Revenant.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99. Suggested list price for the Ultra HD Blu-ray has not been announced yet.
