Blu-ray Takes 'Flight' in February

Posted Mon Jan 7, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

Robert Zemeckis' acclaimed film will be boarding Blu-ray this February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount says 'Flight' will hit Blu-ray on February 5.

Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington stars in this “riveting and powerful nail-biting thriller” (Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood) from Robert Zemeckis, the Academy Award®-winning director of 'Forrest Gump' and 'Cast Away.' Airline pilot Whip Whitaker (Washington) miraculously lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe. But even as he’s being hailed for his heroic efforts, questions arise as to who or what was really at fault. Action-packed, engrossing and powerful, Washington’s performance is being hailed as “a triumph” (Richard Corliss, TIME) and one that “will be talked about for years” (Pete Travers, Rolling Stone).

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Origins of Flight, The Making of Flight, Anatomy of a Plane Crash, and Q&A Highlights.

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