'Romeo and Juliet' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Dec 13, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 2013 adaptation of the classic literary work by William Shakespeare is planned for Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is set to bring 'Romeo and Juliet' to Blu-ray on February 4.

William Shakespeare's epic and searing love story has been revitalized for a whole new generation by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes and acclaimed director Carlo Carlei. Douglas Booth and Academy Award® Nominee Hailee Steinfeld lead an extraordinary ensemble cast as Romeo and Juliet, the star-crossed youths who fall for each other in spite of their feuding families. Filled with lush, enchanting imagery amid its original setting in Verona, Italy, this legendary tale of romance remains timeless and transcendent...and as powerful as ever.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include 4 featurettes and the theatrical trailer.

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