'J. Edgar' To Open a File on Blu-ray in February

Posted Fri Jan 6, 2012 at 08:00 AM PST by

Director Clint Eastwood's epic biopic has just been announced for Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers has revealed 'J. Edgar' will hit Blu-ray on February 21.

Leonardo DiCaprio ('Inception,' 'Blood Diamond') stars as J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years. Hoover was feared, admired, reviled and revered, a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted prize. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life. Oscar Winner Clint Eastwood ('Gran Torino,' 'Million Dollar Baby,' 'Unforgiven') directs an all-star cast including Naomi Watts ('21 Grams'), Armie Hammer ('The Social Network') and Oscar Winner Judi Dench ('Shakespeare in Love') as Hoover’s overprotective mother.

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements have yet to be revealed.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray Combo is $35.99 and a Movie-only Edition will also be available at $29.98.
