The Norwegian drama nominated for Best Foreign Language Film will set sail for Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'Kon-Tiki' for Blu-ray on August 27.
Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific ocean in a balsa wood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans already back in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the sea and settle on Polynesian islands. After gathering financing for the trip with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101 day-long journey across 8,000 kilometers, all while the world was watching. 'Kon-Tiki' tells about the origin of Heyerdahl's idea and the events surrounding the group's voyage.
Specs and supplements have not yet been announced, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is $29.99.
