Posted Thu Nov 29, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

Daniel Barnz' school-based drama will be available on high-definition early next year.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has slated 'Won't Back Down' for Blu-ray on January 15.

Oscar® Nominees Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis lead a stellar cast in this empowering drama inspired by actual events. Hard-working single mom Jamie Fitzpatrick (Gyllenhaal) is concerned that John Adams Elementary is letting her daughter down. Teaming with a caring teacher (Davis) who wants the best future for her own son, she sets out to improve attitudes and elevate the school’s academic standards. Despite the odds, with courage, hope and persistence, the women just might prevail in this uplifting film that also stars Rosie Perez and Academy Award® Winner Holly Hunter.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director Daniel Barnz; A Tribute to Teachers; The Importance of Education; Audio Commentary with Director Daniel Barnz; Theatrical Trailer; Sneak Peek; and Ultraviolet Copy.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
