'Arthur Newman' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Jul 3, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Colin Firth and Emily Blunt will take on new identities in a journey toward self discovery on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, New Video Group is preparing 'Arthur Newman' for Blu-ray on September 3.

'Arthur Newman' follows the mid-life travails of sad sack Wallace Avery (Colin Firth). He hates his job, his ex-wife and son hate him, and he's blown his one shot at living his dream. Not wanting to face all this, he stages his own death and buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman. However, Arthur's road trip towards a new life is interrupted by the arrival of the beautiful but fragile Mike (Emily Blunt), who is also trying to leave her past behind. Drawn to one another, these two damaged souls begin to connect as they break into empty homes and take on the identities of the absent owners: elderly newlyweds, a high-roller and his Russian lady, among others. Through this process, Arthur and Mike discover that what they love most about each other are the identities they left at home, and their real journey, that of healing, begins.

Specs and supplements have not been announced yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
