Moonrise Kingdom Blu-ray Announced

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom to DVD and Blu-ray this October. Set to be released on October 16th in a Blu-ray Combo Pack (with BD, DVD, a Digital Copy, and Ultraviolet capability), the comedy was an unlikely box office hit during the summer. Featuring a talented ensemble that included Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Frances McDormand, and newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, the film is a story of first love revolving around two 12-year-olds who run away together in the wilderness. As the search for them commences, a storm is brewing off-shore with intents on causing havoc to the island community.

The Blu-ray will be presented in a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen ratio with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. Special features to be found on both the Blu-ray and DVD include the featurette “A Look Inside Moonrise Kingdom,” “Welcome to the Island of New Penzance” (a series of guided tours narrated by Bob Balaban), plus a set tour with star Bill Murray.
