Details have been revealed for the Norwegian drama setting sail for Blu-ray in August.
As previously reported, 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.
The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Kon-Tiki: The Incredible True Story; and a Visual Effects Featurette.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
