The supernatural thriller starring Jessica Chastain will haunt Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Mama' will have a Blu-ray release on May 7.
Guillermo del Toro, the Academy Award-nominated writer of 'Pan's Labyrinth,' presents this supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When the young sisters are found alive in a decrepit cabin, their uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, "Game of Thrones") and his girlfriend (Oscarr nominee Jessica Chastain, 'Zero Dark Thirty') take them in. As they try to introduce the children to a normal life, Annabel (Chastain) begins to wonder if the traumatized girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack will include: Matriarcal Secrets: An in-depth exploration of the digital and practical effects employed to shape the film's phantom presence; Deleted Scenes: Deleted scenes with optional commentary by director/co-writer Andy Muschietti and producer/co-Writer Barbara Muschietti; Original Short: Original short with introduction by Guillermo del Toro and optional commentary with Andy and Barbara Muschietti; The Birth of Mama: Mama began as a chilling short that announced a new voice in the horror genre. Exclusive interviews with Guillermo del Toro and the filmmakers track the bloodline of the feature and explore changes needed to make the transition to a film; and Feature Commentary: Audio commentary with Andy and Barbara Muschietti.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
