Both releases will be available in stores this February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is preparing 'Hacksaw Ridge' for Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on February 21.
'Hacksaw Ridge' is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers, was wounded by a grenade, and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Both releases will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and supplements include: The Soul of War: Making Hacksaw Ridge Documentary; Veterans Day Greeting with Mel Gibson; and Deleted Scenes.
