'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Dec 22, 2011 at 12:00 PM PST by

The acclaimed film is set for a Blu-ray release in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' for Blu-ray on February 21.

From 2011 Sundance Film Festival “Best Director” winner Sean Durkin, in his feature film debut, and featuring breakout star Elizabeth Olsen in her “Best Female Lead” Film Independent Spirit Award nominated role, 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' is supported by unforgettable powerhouse performances from Academy Award® nominee John Hawkes ('Winter’s Bone,' 'American Gangster') and Sarah Paulson ('Down With Love,' 'What Women Want'),

After escaping from a dangerous cult and the watchful eye of its charismatic leader, a young woman named Martha (Olsen) tries to reclaim a normal life with her family. But the haunting memories from Martha’s past trigger a chilling paranoia — and nowhere seems safe as the fragile line between her reality and delusions begin to blur.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement shared with the DVD release is 'Mary Last Seen' - the chilling short film by writer/director Durkin that started it all.

The rest of the supplements are high-definition exclusives and include: Spotlight on Elizabeth Olsen, The Story, The Making of Martha Marcy May Marlene, A Conversation with Filmmakers, The Psyche of a Cult, "Marcy's Song" Music Video by John Hawkes, and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
