Paramount Home Media has targeted Feb. 28 as the release date for a three-SKU array of home entertainment products for director Robert Zemeckis’ World War II-era spy thriller, Allied.
This blend of espionage and romance, teaming Brad Pitt with Marion Cotillard (Oscar winner for Best Actress in 2008 for her performance as Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose … and also nominated in the same category for the 2014 film release of Two Days, One Night), arrives with an ARR of 95 days and domestic ticket sales currently stands right at $40 million.
Bonus features, which are exclusive to the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD editions, are ten productions featurettes — “Story of Allied,” “From Stages to the Sahara: The Production Design of Allied,” “Through the Lens: Directing with Robert Zemeckis,” “A Stitch in Time: The Costumes of Allied,” “‘Til Death Do Us Part: Max and Marianne,” “Guys and Gals: The Ensemble Cast,” “Lights, Pixels, ACTION! The Visual Effects of Allied,” “Behind the Wheel: The Vehicles of Allied,” “Locked and Loaded: The Weapons of Allied” and “That Swingin’ Sound: The Music of Allied.”
Also added to the release calendar by Paramount Home Media this past week is the Comedy Central production of Drunk History: Season 4, which will be available as double-disc DVD set — featuring all ten episodes — on Mar. 14.
Host Derek Waters is joined by guest “storytellers” — who all have had perhaps a tad too much to drink — who “retell” historical events and details about historical figures as they best can (considering their state of being).
Subjects covered during season four range from the legend of Sadie the Goat (Cub fans know this one well), to events in the life of presidents Roosevelt (both Teddy and Franklin) Jackson and Washington, and little known facts about the Wright Brothers, Timothy Leary and Buster Keaton.
On Mar. 21 the Nickelodeon hit animated series starring Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael returns with the double disc DVD collection of 11 thrill-packed adventures in Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Super Shredder.
