Four Lions Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Though it had low visibility in theaters, the first Alamo Drafthouse Films’ release surely made an impression on those who did have the opportunity to see it. Both myself and Robert Saucedo saw it at SXSW and enjoyed it so much that we had to recognize it as one of our honorable mention selections for our Best Films of 2010.

Days after its twelve-week run concluded, Magnolia Home Entertainment and Drafthouse Films have announced its Blu-ray and DVD release. Slated to hit stores on March 8th, both releases will contain bonus materials including deleted scenes, mini “background” documentaries about Muslim life in Britain, interview with director Chris Morris, and behind the scenes segments. The Four Lions Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 and $26.98, respectively. (Amazon currently lists Four Lions with a pre-order price of $20.99 (Blu-ray) and $13.99 (DVD).)

Artwork and synopsis below:

A whip-smart, slapstick comedy, Chris Morris’ FOUR LIONS takes aim at Jihadi suicide bombers and illuminates the war on terror through satire and farce. Follow five inept aspiring terrorists on their quest to strike a blow, and how they demonstrate that terrorism may be about ideology, but it can also be about idiots.
