The acclaimed film by Wes Anderson is coming to high-definition in October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Moonrise Kingdom' will have a Blu-ray release on October 16.
A star-studded and visually stunning box office hit, and a tale of first love directed by two-time Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson ('The Royal Tenenbaums,' 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' 'Rushmore'), Focus Features’ 'Moonrise Kingdom' follows two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way.
Charming screen newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward star alongside Bruce Willis ('Die Hard'), Academy Award® nominees Edward Norton ('American History X') and Bill Murray ('Lost in Translation'), Academy Award® winners Frances McDormand ('Fargo') and Tilda Swinton ('Michael Clayton'), Jason Schwartzman ('Rushmore'), and Bob Balaban ('Gosford Park'). 'Moonrise Kingdom' is a movie that critics are calling “extraordinary from start to finish” (Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies).
The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: A Look Inside Moonrise Kingdom; Welcome to The Island of New Penzance: Bob Balaban narrates a series of guided tours from the locations of Moonrise Kingdom featuring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Wes Anderson; set Tour With Bill Murray: Bill Murray personally takes viewers on a tour of the Moonrise Kingdom sets; pocket BLU; and uHear.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.98.
