The acclaimed fantasy drama has been slated for Blu-ray in December.
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' for Blu-ray on December 4.
Teeming with magic, beauty and pure joy, this crowd-pleasing winner at the Sundance Film Festival has emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed films. Newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis delivers an “Oscar®-worthy performance” (Philadelphia Daily News) as Hushpuppy, the six-year-old force of nature in an isolated bayou community. When her tough but loving father Wink (Dwight Henry) succumbs to a mysterious malady, the fierce and determined girl bravely sets out on a journey to the outside world. But Hushpuppy’s quest is hindered by a “busted” universe that melts the ice caps and unleashes an army of prehistoric beasts.
The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: a making-of featurette, trailer, and the Blu-ray exclusive Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Director Benh Zeitlin, Auditions, Music, Glory at Sea, and The Aurochs.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
