    [​IMG]

    Universal City, California, February 20, 20201917, the critically acclaimed, multi-award winning action spectacle including Academy Award® winner for Best Cinematography arrives on Digital March 10, 2020 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-rayTM and DVD March 24, 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed as “One of the most extraordinary cinematic achievements of the year” (JoBlo), the universally acclaimed film combines groundbreaking film making, memorable performances, and an unforgettable insight into the human experience against the shattering background of war. Additionally an Oscar® winner for Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Mixing, 1917 is “a new war movie classic” (NY Post).

    In 1917 at the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them. 1917 comes to Digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-rayTM and DVD with bonus content showcasing the incredible craft and artistry behind the immersive feature, including a detailed look into the production design, how the film engineered a one shot, 360-degree format and interviews with the cast and crew.

    In 1917, Academy Award®-winning director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Spectre, Skyfall) brings his Golden Globe® and BAFTA award-winning directorial performance to a script co-written alongside Krysty Wilson-Cairns (“Penny Dreadful”). The film stars breakout actors George Mackay (Captain Fantastic, Pride, Sunshine on Leith) and Dean-Charles Chapman (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”). Accompanying Mackay and Chapman are standout performances by Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor, Kingsman, The Imitation Game), Andrew Scott (“Fleabag”, Sherlock, Spectre), Richard Madden (Netflix’s “The Bodyguard”, Rocketman, HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, Kingsman, Bridget Jones) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Dr. Strange, The Imitation Game). The film was produced by Mendes, Pippa Harris (“Penny Dreadful”, “Call the Midwife”), Jayne-Ann Tenggren (Spectre, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close), Callum McDougall (Spectre, Skyfall, Casino Royale) and Brian Oliver (Rocketman, Black Swan).

    This is one movie that I'll own on 4K disc. Not just a digital purchase for me which means I might not have it in my collection until Black Friday sales.

    Day 1 purchase. Tremendous. My # 1 film from last year, just slightly ahead of Parasite.

    Any word if it will be the theatrical 2:35 ratio or the IMAX 1:90 version ?

    Edit - Just saw Amazon lists it at 2:35..

    Yeah, I was looking for you and I stumbled upon the same thing from Amazon...

    ...however, I don't know how accurate that is because the aspect ratio isn't even listed in the press release we got. I just went to Universal's publicity site and they don't even have the title listed there yet which is odd.

    I understand that 2.35 is Deakins's preferred AR.

    Is it just me or does this seem like an awfully fast trip to disc? I mean, yes, technically it was in a handful of theaters at Christmas, but it didn't expand wide until the middle of January.

    Anyway, I might try to rent this at some point. It appears too jumpy for me to handle theatrically, but maybe if I can control the volume.

    It might seem that way because of the end of year break, but it’s three months from theatrical to disc which is generally standard for non-Disney these days. (Disney maintains a slightly longer window on most titles they control.)

    It especially makes sense for a title like this that’s probably peaked in terms of buzz. Not winning BP limits the amount of legs it has theatrically from this point on. Get it out there now to the home market while it can coast on the theatrical and awards advertising campaigns.

    I don't see it getting much box office the last week of March. It's not like the old days in which the studios can milk every single box office dollar as people of today get their entertainment from too broad of a spectrum for that to work unless it's a final Avengers movie or something of that irk.
