The film starring Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, and Jennifer Jason Leigh comes to home video next month, but if you want the 4K UHD you'll have to head on over to Best Buy.

Biologist and former soldier Lena (Natalie Portman) is shocked when her missing husband (Oscar Isaac) comes home near death from a top-secret mission into The Shimmer, a mysterious quarantine zone no one has ever returned from.
