The acclaimed drama inspired by the riveting true events behind the American financial crisis is coming to Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is preparing 'Margin Call' for Blu-ray on December 20.

This "impressively cast" (The New York Times) Wall Street drama stars an A-list ensemble including Oscar® winners Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons, along with Oscar® nominee Stanley Tucci and Golden Globe® nominee Demi Moore. The film also features Mary McDonnell (TV's "The Closer"), Paul Bettany ('The Tourist'), Simon Baker (TV's "The Mentalist"), Zachary Quinto ('Star Trek') and Penn Badgley (TV's "Gossip Girl"). Hailed as "dazzling" (The New York Times) and honored as an official selection of the Sundance and Berlin International film festivals, 'Margin Call' revolves around the key people at an investment bank who are faced with the unimaginable task of navigating the first 12 hours of the financial crisis.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio commentary with writer/director J.C. Chandor and producer Neal Dodson, deleted scenes, and behind-the-scenes featurettes.

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