Posted Thu Jan 10, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

The acclaimed TV drama won't be available on Blu-ray until April.

As previously reported, HBO was readying 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' for Blu-ray on March 19, but now the date has been changed to April 2.

Academy Award® and three-time Golden Globe® winner Nicole Kidman and Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Clive Owen star in HBO Films' 'Hemingway & Gellhorn,' under the direction of Academy Award® nominee Philip Kaufman ('The Unbearable Lightness of Being'). Nominated for 15 Emmy® Awards, winning two, the film was hailed as "poignant...Kidman and Owen bring real pathos and power to their portrayals" (Newsweek) and "intoxicating...the star power is formidable" (TV Guide).

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include Making Hemingway & Gellhorn - From casting to costumes to editing, the cast and crew provide a detailed view of the production process; Behind the Visual Effects - The cast and crew discuss the special effects and how they enriched the film's historical accuracy; and Audio Commentary with director Philip Kaufman and Academy Award® winning editor Walter Murch.

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