Let's just make 2011 the year of the Coen Brothers on Blu-ray.
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista is working on 'O Brother Where Art Thou?' for a Blu-ray release on September 13.
George Clooney ('The Perfect Storm') and John Turturro ('Cars 2') embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious, offbeat road picture. And now, for the first time, this quirky gem shines more brightly than ever in Blu-ray High Definition!
Fed up with crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (Clooney) busts loose…except that he’s still shackled to two misfits from his chain gang: bad tempered Pete (Turturro) and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelsen) With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain, the three embark on a riotous odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses and betrayal. Experience every unpredictable moment as it plays out in the crystal-clear sound and breathtaking picture quality of Blu-ray. Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman), 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn!
The Blu-ray will feature will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, two storyboard-to-scene comparisons, "I Am a Man of a Constant Sorrow" music video, and theatrical trailer.
