'Submarine' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jul 15, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The acclaimed dramedy will fire its torpedoes at Blu-ray this fall.

In an early announcement to retailers, Anchor Bay has slated 'Submarine' for a high-definition release on October 4.

The enchanting coming-of-age comedy, 'Submarine,' from executive producer Ben Stiller ('Tropic Thunder') and writer/director Richard Ayoade (the cult British television series “The Mighty Boosh”) is based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne and stars Noah Taylor ('Almost Famous'), Paddy Considine ('The Bourne Ultimatum'), Craig Roberts ('Jane Eyre'), Yasmin Paige (the British miniseries 'Murderland'), and Golden Globe® winner Sally Hawkins ('Happy-go-lucky').

In his review for The Wall Street Journal, Joe Morgenstern called 'Submarine' “wonderfully funny,” and Joe Neumaier of The New York Daily News described it as “a charming indie that combines dreamy aspiration with mucky, hilarious reality.” Kyle Smith of The New York Post wrote that “the excruciating and the hilarious mingle nearly to perfection.”

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement revealed so far is The Making of Submarine.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
