Alexander Payne's Academy Award-nominated film is planned for Blu-ray at the end of next month. Pre-orders are now live!

Hailed as an American masterpiece, Nebraska is nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Alexander Payne), Best Actor (Bruce Dern), Best Original Screenplay (Bob Nelson), Best Supporting Actress (June Squibb) and Best Cinematography (Phedon Papamichael).

The film tells the captivating story of a father (Bruce Dern) and his adult son (Will Forte) who embark on a journey to claim a million-dollar prize; what begins as a fool's errand becomes a search for the road to redemption.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 3.0 soundtrack, and a multi-part The Making of Nebraska featurette.
