Ben Affleck's 'Live by Night' Blu-ray Bound

Posted Wed Feb 22, 2017 at 01:00 PM PST by

The period crime drama is set to arrive on home video next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is working on 'Live by Night' for Blu-ray on March 21. The release will also be part of 'The Ben Affleck Collection' that also includes 'The Town,' 'Argo,' and 'The Accountant' available in stores on the same date.

Oscar winner Ben Affleck ("Argo") directed and stars in the dramatic crime thriller "Live by Night." Affleck also wrote the screenplay based on the award-winning best-seller by Dennis Lehane, marking the second collaboration for the fellow Boston natives, following the acclaimed drama "Gone Baby Gone."

"Live by Night" is set in the roaring `20s when Prohibition hasn't stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa's steamy rum-running underworld.

The release will feature 1080p video and supplements include: Angels with Dirty Faces: The Women of Live By Night; The Men of Live By Night; Live By Night's Prolific Author; In Close Up: Creating a Classic Car Chase; Deleted Scenes; Deleted Scenes Commentary; and Director's Commentary.
