A limited edition Blu-ray of Nora Ephron's 1993 romantic comedy is now available for pre-order!
In an "early" announcement to retailers, Twilight Time says 'Sleepless in Seattle' is headed for a Blu-ray release on July 9.
Tom Hanks stars as Sam Baldwin, a widowed father who, thanks to the wiles of his worried son, becomes a reluctant guest on a radio call-in show. He's an instant hit with thousands of female listeners, who deluge his Seattle home with letters of comfort. Meanwhile, inspired in equal parts by Sam's story and by classic Hollywood romance, writer Annie Reed (Meg Ryan) becomes convinced that it's her destiny to meet Sam. There are just two problems: Annie's engaged to someone else, and Sam doesn't know - yet - that they're made for each other.
The release will be limited to 3000 units and will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron; Isolated Score Track; Love in the Movies; "When I Fall in Love" Music Video; Original Theatrical Trailer; and Extensive Liner Notes by Julie Kirgo
The Blu-ray can be pre-ordered from Screen Archives here for $29.95.
