Planned for delivery to retail on that date are both DVD and Blu-ray editions, plus the release of a day-date 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack. The VOD window begins on Apr. 8.
That first Tuesday in May street date yields an ARR of 130 days and ticket sales generated during the film’s Christmas opening currently stand at $56.4 million.
Jennifer Lawrence earned her fourth Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Home Shopping Network mop queen Joy Mangano — her previous nods were for Winter’s Bone and Silver Linings Playbook in the Best Actress category (winning for Silver Linings Playbook — of note, David O. Russell was nominated as both Best Director and for his writing adaptation of Matthew Quick’s novel) and a Best Support Actress nomination for her performance in another David O. Russell film, American Hustle.
Bonus features — limited to the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack SKUs — are a photo gallery, the featurette titled “Joy, Strength and Perseverance” and video session hosted by Maureen Dowd featuring Lawrence and Russell.
