Paramount Home Entertainment has announced a release date for Flight on DVD and Blu-ray. The critically-acclaimed drama from Robert Zemeckis, starring Denzel Washington, will be released in February. It will hit both DVD and Blu-ray on February 5th, 2013.
The movie will be released on a single-disc DVD as well as a Blu-ray Combo Pack. While the standalone DVD will feature only the movie, the Blu-ray Combo Pack will come with several bonus features. These features include a couple of featurettes highlighting the making of the film and how it was brought to the big screen. There will be an additional special feature which shows how the plane crash was created. Finally, the Combo Pack will include highlights from a Q&A for the movie.
Written by John Gatins, the film tells the story of Whip Whitaker, a commercial airline pilot who miraculously lands a plummeting airplane during a breathtaking sequence described as “the hairiest, scariest, most realistic, and thrilling plane crash in movie history” (Richard Corliss, Time). But despite his heroics, Whip comes under investigation and begins what may be an even more harrowing personal descent.
Flight is directed by Robert Zemeckis from a script by John Gatins. The movie stars Denzel Washington. John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo and Brian Geraghty also star.
