'Big Miracle' Splashes onto Blu-ray

Posted Wed Apr 18, 2012 at 01:00 PM PDT by

The heartwarming whale of a tale will surface on Blu-ray this summer.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will unleash 'Big Miracle' on Blu-ray on June 19.

Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski star in this incredible rescue adventure - the amazing true story that inspired the world and captured the hearts of millions. When a family of whales is trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle, a small-town reporter (Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Barrymore) rally an unlikely coalition of Alaskan natives, oil tycoons and the Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales before it's too late. Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney and Ted Danson costar in this charming feel-good movie that the whole family can enjoy!

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD Flipper Disc and will feature a 1080p presentation, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary with director Ken Kwapis, Deleted scenes with introductions by Ken Kwapis, A "Big Miracle" in Alaska, Truth is Stranger than Fiction, and a digital copy.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
