The true story of one of the world's most famous assassinations will take a Blu-ray bow this August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'The Conspirator' is coming to Blu-ray on August 16.
Oscar®-winning director Robert Redford (Best Director, 'Ordinary People,' 1980) gives viewers a front-row seat in the thrilling courtroom battle waged against Mary Surratt (Golden Globe® nominee Robin Wright), the only female charged in the murder of President Abraham Lincoln. The film co-stars Golden Globe® nominee James McAvoy as the attorney who reluctantly takes on Surratt's defense, and who becomes her biggest ally as government forces align to bring her down. An all-star supporting cast includes Kevin Kline ('A Fish Called Wanda'), Danny Huston ('X-Men Origins: Wolverine'), Evan Rachel Wood (HBO's "True Blood"), Justin Long ('Going the Distance') and two-time Oscar® nominee Tom Wilkinson.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include a feature-length documentary about the plot to kill Lincoln, interviews with the cast and crew, and numerous featurettes on the making of the film and the true story behind it.
Blu-ray exclusives include image galleries, and a video commentary with Robert Redford.
'The Conspirator' is housed in collectible embossed, foil stamped packaging for a limited time.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
