'The Right Stuff: 30th Anniversary Edition' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jul 19, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Philip Kaufman's 1983 classic will blast off to Blu-ray this November!

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'The Right Stuff: 30th Anniversary Edition' for Blu-ray on November 5.

Chronicling the exciting early years of the United States' race to conquer the final frontier, and the daredevil test pilots who ultimately became the first Americans in space, The Right Stuff begins as America is pondering its future and looking to the skies. And intrepid test pilot Chuck Yeager (Shepard) and the seven pioneering astronauts of the Project Mercury space program are the ones the country looks to. Kaufman scripts and directs, pushing the envelope with a filmmaking bravado that matches this soaring story of training, heroism and of sudden fame for which there is no training.

The Blu-ray will feature 40-page digibook packaging as well as 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD soundtrack, and supplements (included on a bonus DVD) will include: The Journey and the Mission: Scene-Specific Commentaries with Director/Screenwriter Philip Kaufman, Cast and Crew Members; Additional Scenes; John Glenn: American Hero (1988 PBS Documentary); Realizing the Right Stuff; T-20 Years and Counting; The Real Men with the Right Stuff; and Theatrical Trailer.
