    The Oscar®-nominated provocative real story of three ambitious and strong women who risked everything to stand up to the man who made them, Bombshell arrives on Digital February 25 and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD March 10. This empowering drama commended by critics and audiences alike is nominated for three Academy Awards® including Best Actress (Charlize Theron), Best Supporting Actress (Margot Robbie), and Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling (Kazu Hiro, Anne Morgan, and Vivian Baker).

    Academy Award® winners Charlize Theron (Monster, Best Actress, 2003) and Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Best Actress, 2002) and Academy Award® nominees Margot Robbie (I, Tonya, Best Actress, 2017) and John Lithgow (Terms of Endearment, Best Supporting Actor, 1983) deliver tour-de-force performances in this provocative real story of three whip-smart, ambitious, strong women who anchored one of America’s most powerful news networks—becoming headlines themselves when they risked everything to stand up to the man who made them famous.

    Directed by two-time Emmy Award® winner Jay Roach (Outstanding Directing, “Game Change,” 2012; “Recount,” 2008) and written by Academy Award® winner Charles Randolph (Best Adapted Screenplay, The Big Short, 2015), Bombshell also stars Kate McKinnon (TV’s “SNL,” Ghostbusters), Connie Britton (TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Nashville”), with Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, TV’s “Entourage”), with Allison Janney (I, Tonya, The Help), and Margot Robbie (I, Tonya, Mary Queen of Scots, The Wolf of Wall Street).

    Explore the fascinating journey it took to bring this ripped-from-the-headlines tale to the screen with in-depth Blu-ray and DVD bonus features, including a 7-part making-of documentary featuring interviews with the incredible cast and crew that brought this story to the screen.

    I'm surprise this isn't getting a 4K/UHD release. If that remains so, I expect the digital will be in 4K. Also, this is a Lionsgate/Summit release do no MoviesAnywhere.

    I quite enjoyed this movie. Not sure why it didn't do so well at the box office. Great cast, well acted, some clever directorial touches. What is it people don't seem to like about it?

    I have to admit there are movies that I am now passing on seeing in a movie theater, but will purchase the 4K digital or disc once it comes into my price range. This is one of those movies.

    It's hard to get people to go see this kind of drama in a theatre these days. It also followed closely on the heels of Showtime's The Loudest Voice, which covered much of the same ground.

    Speaking only for myself, I just didn't want to watch a movie with political content such as this, which is the same reason I skipped Vice last year. I like al the actors in it but watching them in this particular story didn't feel interesting to me. It also came out in the end-of-year crunch when so many options flooded theaters, and I think the competition muted almost all grosses.

    More surprising: the Blu-ray lacks a lossless audio option!

    Lossy Dolby 5.1 only - WTF???

    I see that from no-name labels sometimes, but Lionsgate???
