James Franco, Danny Boyle bringing Oscar-nominated “127 Hours” to DVD

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Yesterday, it was just an awesome Danny Boyle movie. Today, it’s a Best Picture nominee. And on March 1, “127 Hours” is going to be a Blu-ray and DVD release that you will want to add to your collection.

Boyle’s film casts Oscar nominee James Franco as Aron Ralston, a mountaineer who went to extreme lengths to survive after getting pinned beneath a boulder while hiking. “127 Hours” earned six Oscar nominations this year, including Adapted Screenplay, Actor (for Franco), Editing, Score, Song and Best Picture.

As for the “Hours” Blu-ray, it will include over an hour of extra footage and behind-the-scenes looks at this Oscar-nominated film.

From the release:

Only on Blu-ray will viewers truly experience the award-winning cinematography in high definition, the way Boyle intended. From sweeping and majestic views of Blue John Canyon to the intimate scenes with Ralston trapped in the crevice, to the intricate weaving of the soundscape of the dessert available in 5.1 DTS HD Lossless surround sound, the Blu-ray format provides the viewer with the highest quality cinematic visual experience possible.

127 HOURS will be available on Blu-ray for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.98 Canada, and on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.98 Canada. Pre-book is February 2.
