'The Message' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Aug 29, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 1977 drama about Islamic history is bound for Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'The Message' for Blu-ray on November 12.

Beginning in 7th century Mecca, 'The Message' tells the conflict between its powerful leaders and Muhammad, who attacks the greed and cruelty rife in this profligate community. After a revelation from God, Muhammad takes up arms against Mecca. Muhammad came to be known as the prophet, the servant, and the bearer of good tidings, and unified Arabia under one religion, one God, preaching the Message.

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

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
