'Parkland' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Oct 21, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Peter Landesman's acclaimed historical drama will be available on Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Millennium Entertainment is set to release 'Parkland' on Blu-ray on November 5.

Written and directed by Landesman and produced by Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, Bill Paxton and Exclusive Media's Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson, 'Parkland' is the ferocious, heart-stopping and powerful untold true story of the people behind the scenes of one of the most scrutinized events in history. It weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas' chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK's security team, witnesses to both the president's death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson's rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplements will be deleted scenes.

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