Just in time for awards season, Ben Affleck's 'Gone Baby Gone' will make its next-gen debut this February.
Surprising even his biggest detractors, Affleck's directorial debut has become one of the best-reviewed films of the year, with 'Gone Baby Gone' already earning buzz as a potential Oscar contender.
Clearly hoping to capitalize on that buzz, Buena Vista has set a February 12 day-and-date Blu-ray and DVD debut for 'Gone Baby Gone, only two weeks before the scheduled Oscar telecast.
Among the many bonus features planned are an audio commentary with Ben Affleck, the featurettes "Going Home," "Capturing Authenticity" and "Casting Gone Baby Gone," and deleted scenes. At press time, there were no announced Blu-ray exclusives, aside from the studio's standard Movie Showcase highlighting the disc's three most HD-ready scenes.
Tech specs include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround audio (at 48kHz/24-bit).
Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.98.
