Yorgos Lanthimos' Critically-Acclaimed 'The Lobster' Blu-ray Bound

Posted Mon Jun 13, 2016 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The dystopian romantic comedy starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz is headed for Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate has revealed 'The Lobster' will arrive on Blu-ray on August 2.

In this highly imaginative, delightfully absurdist comedy, Colin Farrell stars as David, a man who has just been dumped by his wife. To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods. David is kept at the mysterious HOTEL while he searches for a new partner, and after several romantic misadventures, decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world. He ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as The Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there, David meets an enigmatic stranger (Rachel Weisz) who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include The Fabric of Attraction: Concocting The Lobster featurette.
