The 1996 drama starring Liam Neeson and Julia Roberts is headed for Blu-ray.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive will be releasing 'Michael Collins' on Blu-ray later this year.
Michael Collins tells the powerful, turbulent story of one of Ireland's most controversial patriots and revolutionary heroes, known as 'The Lion Of Ireland', who leads his countrymen in their fight for independence. Set in the early 20th century, when a monumental history of oppression and bloodshed had divided Ireland and its people, the film covers the bloody 1916 Easter Uprising, when Irish revolutionaries surrendered to the overwhelming military power of the British forces and Collins was arrested. Upon his release, he takes leadership of the Irish independence movement and strives to create a free and peaceful country.
Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include: Audio Commentary by Neil Jordan; In Conversation with Neil Jordan; Deleted Scenes; The South Bank Show documentary with Neil Jordan Interview; Actual Footage of Michael Collins; and Original Theatrical Trailer.
