Guy Pearce bringing Animal Kingdom to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the crime drama ANIMAL KINGDOM, starring Guy Pearce, Ben Mendelsohn and Joel Edgerton, will be released on Blu-ray January 18, 2011. This should not be confused with one of the many nature documentaries that have been coming out as of late. This film is based in Australia and follows the story of a young adult as he tries to survive in a dangerous criminal family along with the help of a detective. The film had a limited theatrical release in August and took home the Award for World Cinema at the Sundance Film Festival.
This appears to be a very gritty drama with a lot of violence and drugs. From what I’ve read it has gotten rave reviews but just didn’t have the means to make it to more theaters. If you are into crime dramas or mafia-type movies, this may be worth checking out. Special features include:
Artwork Coming Soon
- Audio commentary with director David Michôd
- Creating Animal Kingdom
- Q&A with director David Michôd and actors Jacki Weaver and James Frecheville
