Dances With Wolves steps onto Blu-ray in November

Kevin Costner established himself as a movie star in the late ’80s with The Untouchables, Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. With his clout as a big name star, he was able to get work a deal to direct and produce a western. There were plenty of people suspect, but very quickly that doubt faded as Dances With Wolves became a box office hit and won Costner a Best Director Oscar as the film was declared Best Picture by the Academy. Now the film is coming out as a Collector’s Edition from Shout! Factory as a Blu-ray with two cuts and dozens of bonus features. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
