'Out of Africa' Double Dip Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Jan 9, 2012 at 08:19 AM PST by

The Academy Award winning film is getting a new transfer and non-flipper combo release this March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is reissuing the romantic drama 'Out of Africa' on Blu-ray on March 6.

Our review of the previous edition is available here.

The most acclaimed motion picture of 1985 stars Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in one of the screen's great epic romances. Directed by Oscar winner Sydney Pollack, 'Out of Africa' is the fascinating true story of Karen Blixen, a strong-willed woman who, with her philandering husband (Klaus Maria Brandauer), runs a coffee plantation in Kenya, circa 1914. To her astonishment, she soon discovers herself falling in love with the land, its people, and a mysterious white hunter (Redford). The masterfully crafted, breathtakingly produced story of love and loss earned Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay (based on material from another medium), cinematography, Original Score, Art Direction (Set Decoration) and Sound.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy will feature a brand new 1080p video transfer, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Feature Commentary with Director Sydney Pollack, Deleted Scenes, A Song of Africa, Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
