'There Be Dragons' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Wed Nov 23, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

An "epic portrayal of faith, forgiveness, and redemption" is coming to Blu-ray in January.

In an early retailer announcement, 20th Century Fox says 'There Be Dragons' is coming to Blu-ray on January 10.

London-based investigative journalist Robert Torres (Dougray Scott, 'Hitman') travels to Spain to research a book about Josemaría Escrivá (Charlie Cox, 'The Merchant of Venice'), the controversial founder of the Catholic instiution Opus Dei. Robert’s visit is on track until he hits a wall, both professionally and personally, when his most promising source - his own father, Manolo Torres (Wes Bently, 'American Beauty') - turns out to be his least cooperative one. Robert begins to unearth his father's toxic secrets when he learns that Manolo was not only born in the same Spanish town as Josemaría, but that they were childhood friends and attended the same seminary. The two men take radically different paths in life, with Josemaría dedicating his life to his faith while Manolo is swept into the brutal and tumultuous Spanish Civil War. As Robert continues to explore the secrets of Josemaría's life and Manolo's mysterious anger, their overlapping journeys are revealed.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include a Facing Your Dragons: Inspiring Testimony from Wes Bentley featurette and deleted scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
