The riveting action-drama starring Matthew McConaughey is headed for Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal has revealed 'Free State of Jones' will arrive on Blu-ray on September 20.
Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey stars in this epic, untold true story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy during the Civil War. Despite overwhelming odds, Knight banded together with other small farmers and local slaves and launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Written and directed by four-time Oscar® nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit), critics are hailing Free State of Jones as “riveting” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times).
The Blu-ray combo pack will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 audio, and supplements include: The History of Jones County.
