The historical war thriller starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan is now up for Blu-ray pre-orders at Amazon.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is prepping 'Anthropoid' for Blu-ray later this year.
ANTHROPOID is based on the extraordinary true story of "Operation Anthropoid," the code name for the Czechoslovakian operatives' mission to assassinate SS officer Reinhard Heydrich. Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution, was the Reich's third in command behind Hitler and Himmler and the leader of Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia. The film follows two soldiers from the Czechoslovakian army-in-exile, Josef Gabcik (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubis (Jamie Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland in December 1941. With limited intelligence and little equipment in a city under lockdown, they must find a way to assassinate Heydrich, an operation that would change the face of Europe forever.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
