Our magic 8-ball says Martin Scorsese's 1986 drama featuring Paul Newman in his Academy Award-winning role is planned for Blu-ray this June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista is readying 'The Color of Money' for Blu-ray on June 5.
Experience legendary actor Paul Newman in the role that earned him an Academy Award® (Best Actor, 1986, 'The Color Of Money'). Newman joins Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise ('Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol') in Academy Award winning Martin Scorsese’s (Best Director, 2006, 'The Departed') brilliant and powerful drama, 'The Color Of Money' – now available for the first time on Blu-ray with an astonishing digital transfer. Revisiting one of his most memorable roles, Newman stars as Fast Eddie Felson from 'The Hustler.'

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this dazzling classic – now better than ever on Blu-ray!
