'The 5th Quarter' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Jun 27, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The triumphant story of family, faith, and football will score a touchdown on Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is planning to release 'The 5th Quarter' on Blu-ray on August 30.

A recent recipient of the Dove Foundation’s “Family-Approved” seal for all audiences over the age of twelve and in the spirit of 'The Blind Side,' comes this inspiring true story of family, faith and football. Aidan Quinn ('Legends of the Fall,' 'A Shine of Rainbows') and Andie MacDowell ('Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Groundhog Day') deliver emotionally stirring performances as the mother and father of Jon Abbate, a rising football star at Wake Forest University. Their lives are suddenly shattered when the family’s youngest son, Luke, is killed in a tragic accident. Inspired by Luke’s memory, Jon courageously leads the Wake Forest team to a series of last-minute victories — leading to a thrilling climax that will “make you stand up and cheer” (NYC Movie Guru).

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement will be The Making of The 5th Quarter.

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