Bonus Footage, Extended Musical Sequences, Director Commentary, Featurettes And More!

CENTURY CITY, Calif. – The music of the legendary “Man in Black,” Johnny Cash, continues to rock when Walk the Line Extended Cut arrives on two-disc DVD March 25th from Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring over 17 minutes of footage, Walk the Line Extended Cut includes director commentary as well as a bonus disc packed with Grammy® award-winning performances, deleted scenes, and more. The multi-award winning film from director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Girl, Interrupted), stars Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon (Election, Vanity Fair), as the rebellious musician and his lifelong-love and savior June Carter. “Brilliant. Masterful,” (The Wall Street Journal), Walk The Line garnered multiple awards including Reese Witherspoon’s Oscar® for Best Performance by an Actress, and three Golden Globes® including Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, as well as Best Performance by an Actor and Actress. Featuring performances by the cast-themselves, the Walk the Line soundtrack won Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media at the 2007 Grammy® Awards. The Walk the Line Extended Cut two-disc DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98 U.S. / $37.98 Canada. Pre-book is February 27.


Singer. Rebel. Outlaw. Hero. With his driving freight-train chords, steel-eyed intensity and a voice as dark as the night, the legendary “Man in Black” revolutionized music—and forged his legacy as a genuine American icon.
