The gambling film from two time Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Frears ('The Queen,' 'High Fidelity') will place the odds on Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will release 'Lay the Favorite' on Blu-ray on March 5.
Get ready to get lucky! Professional odds-maker Dink (Bruce Willis) is running a small-time sports gambling enterprise when a former stripper named Beth (Rebecca Hall) promises to help him score big — and turns his world upside down. With his connections and her knack for numbers, the lucrative business of sports betting will never be the same. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Joshua Jackson round out the talented cast of misfits who are willing to risk everything for their dreams. Sly and sexy, heart-warming and hilarious, 'Lay the Favorite,' directed by Stephen Frears, delivers laughs and thrills in this vivid exposé of the world of gambling based on the Beth Raymer’s best-selling memoir, “Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling.”
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary With Director Vic Armstrong and Producer Andy Armstrong; Alternate Ending With Commentary By Vic Armstrong and Andy Armstrong; New Interviews With Vic Armstrong, Andy Armstrong and Actors Dolph Lundgren And Kristian Alfonso; and Theatrical Trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
