'Viva Zapata!' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Fri Mar 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The 60th anniversary edition of the Marlon Brando drama is planned for Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will release 'Viva Zapata!' on Blu-ray on May 7.

The life and times of the legendary Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata are brought to the screen in Darryl F. Zanuck's powerful production of John Steinbeck's screenplay. Marlon Brando, fresh from his success in 'A Streetcar Named Desire,' gives a stunning portrayal of the outlaw turned revolutionary leader. The film also boasts Anthony Quinn's 1952 Best Supporting Actor Oscar-Winning performance as Zapata's brother. 'Viva Zapata!' is one of the classic political movies and another fine example of Brando's genius as a film actor.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio Mono soundtracks, and supplements still have yet to be revealed.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
