'Europa Report' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Jul 31, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The science fiction thriller will blast off toward Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia is preparing 'Europa Report' for Blu-ray on October 8.

'Europa Report' follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter's moon Europa to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean could exist underneath Europa's icy surface and may contain single-celled life, Europa Ventures, a privately funded space exploration company, sends six of the best astronauts from around the world to confirm the data and explore the revolutionary discoveries that may lie in the Europan ocean. After a near-catastrophic technical failure that leads to loss of communication with Earth and the tragic death of a crewmember, the surviving astronauts must overcome the psychological and physical toll of deep space travel, and survive a discovery on Europa more profound than they had ever imagined.

Supplements have not been detailed yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
