Posted Thu Jul 11, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Zal Batmanglij's 2013 thriller will hit Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be bringing 'The East' to Blu-ray on September 17.

An undercover investigator's moral compass begins to change when she infiltrates an anarchist group responsible for targeting major corporations. When the CEOs of high profile companies find themselves the victims of a number of covert attacks, former FBI agent Sarah Moss (Brit Marling) is recruited by private intelligence firm Hiller Brood to gather information on 'The East', a shadowy eco-activist collective thought to be responsible. After finally managing to infiltrate the group, however, Sarah discovers her allegiances beginning to shift, as she increasingly begins to question the moral uncertainties of her life and finds herself falling under the spell of the group's charismatic leader Benji (Alexander Skarsgård).

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Two Brothers: Collaboration; Cause and Effect: The Movement of The East; and Examining the Moral Gray.

Blu-ray exclusives include Off the Grid: Creating the Story; Casting The East; and Deleted Scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
