Universal Pictures Home Entertainment expanded its post-Labor Day release calendar this past week with the news that director Gary Ross’ Civil War tale, Free State of Jones, will be available as both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings on Sept. 20.
The ARR for this STX Entertainment production starring Matthew McConaughey as the anti-Confederate revolt leader, Newton Knight, works out to a swift-to-market 88 days. Ticket sales currently stand at $20.4 million.
The only bonus goodie is the featurette titled “The History of Jones County.”
The first foray into the September release realm for Universal occurred about a week ago with the Sept. 6 street date for director Greg McLean’s possessed-house thriller, The Darkness, starring Kevin Bacon, who has to battle demons inadvertently brought home from a camping trip by his son.
The film pulled in $10.7 million from its theatrical run back in May, arrives as both Blu-ray and DVD selections and the ARR is 116 days.
Bonus features for The Darkness include an alternate ending and deleted scenes.
