Oscar Blu-ray: The Artist Coming in April
Already having bagged several high-profile awards including Best Actor at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best Film of the Year, The Artist has been confirmed for its Blu-ray release ahead of The Academy Awards at the end of the month. The film has 10 nominations, and is widely tipped to take home several Oscar statues at the end of the night.
The Artist will be released on the 24th April in the USA, and although it has yet to be confirmed for the UK, it has been speculated it will go on sale on the 7th May.
The disc will be presented in 1080p and will use the original 1.37:1 aspect ratio. The press release didn't include details on the audio format, but we'd expect a DTS-HD Master Audio track.
Extra features are as follows:
- The Artist: The Making of a Hollywood Love Story.
- Hollywood As a Character: The Locations of The Artist.
- Blooper Reel.
- Cast and Crew Q&A.
As that's hardly a stellar collection of extras, it's probably safe to assume we're in for a deluxe version of The Artist in the future.
