'The Hudsucker Proxy' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Feb 13, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

The Coen Brothers' 1994 dark comedy will be available on Blu-ray at the end of the month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive has set 'The Hudsucker Proxy' for Blu-ray on February 26.

Paul Newman, Tim Robbins and Jennifer Jason Leigh star in filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen's darkly comic look at big business. When the founder of Hudsucker Industries leaps to his death from the 44th floor boardroom window the board of directors panics. But there is a plan: install a complete imbecile as president of the company and devalue the stock so the board can acquire a controlling interest for themselves. But where can they find such a guileless patsy? Enter Norville Barnes. Fresh off the bus from Muncie, Indiana, as a graduate of the 1958 class of the Muncie College of Business Administration, Norville is ready to start at the bottom and work his way up to the top of the corporate world ... he just never imagined it would happen so quickly.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements haven't been revealed yet.

The Blu-ray is now available for pre-order here for $19.95.
