Jean-Luc Godard's controversial 1985 film is heading to Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cohen Media Group is preparing 'Hail Mary' for Blu-ray on January 7.
Denounced by the Pope and banned and boycotted worldwide, this surprisingly serene and lyrical work translates the Virgin Birth into tangible contemporary terms, with Mary as a teenage basketball-playing gas-station attendant who receives the Annunciation by jetliner. Mary is a beautiful yet ordinary teenager who vows to maintain her chastity. Following a warning from an angel, a confused and innocent Mary unexpectedly falls pregnant and is forced to wed her taxi-driving boyfriend Joseph. He, in turn, must love his virgin bride from a distance, revering her without touching her. Forced to face a shocking reality, Mary and Joseph along with their family and friends must struggle to cope as the provocative theme unfolds. 'Hail Mary' is a sensational and bold work from French master director Jean-Luc Godard which touched off an uproar of protest heard around the world.
Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price for the Blu-ray have not been announced yet.
