Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has moved on to 2014 with news this week that two of its recent theatrical hits will be ready for the home entertainment market place in January.
First up, on Jan. 21, is auteur filmmaker Woody Allen’s latest, Blue Jasmine … Blu-ray and DVD editions are planned, with the Blu-ray SKU featuring UltraViolet. The ARR for this bittersweet drama starring Cate Blanchett is 179 days and the box office gross (mainly generated by word-of-mouth) currently sits at $32.7 million.
The only bonus features are “Notes from the Red Carpet” and a press conference featuring Cate Blanchett, Peter Saarsgard and Andrew Dice Clay.
The following week, Jan. 28, look for the animated smash, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Slated for retail delivery are a three-SKU array — a 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and a stand-alone DVD (all three selections feature UltraViolet).
The ARR is 123 days and the box office haul was $114.2 million.
Bonus features include commentary from co-directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, seven featurettes and two mini-movies — “Attack of the 50-Foot Gummi Bear” and “Steve’s First Bath.” Exclusive to the Blu-ray SKUs are two additional mini-movies and deleted scenes.
