The Drop, a gritty crime drama starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini, debuted in September to little fanfare, which was surprising given how riveting and well-acted the film actually was. Regardless, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is giving audiences another chance to discover The Drop by bringing it to Blu-Ray on January 20th next year.
In the crime drama, which was scripted by Shutter Island novelist Dennis Lehane, bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) and his hardened employer Uncle Marv (Gandolfini) are forced to choose between survival and loyalty when they find themselves caught in a robbery gone bad, and on the hook for a mob debt they can’t repay. Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts co-star in the film, which was directed by Michaël R. Roskam.
The Blu-Ray will boast 1080p resolution and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, in addition to a Digital HD copy. Included are special features such as:
- Deleted Scenes with optional commentary by Michael R. Roskam and Dennis Lehane
- Millie and Bob talk at the bar
- Bob puts away Xmas decorations
- Bob talks to Priest
- Bob scolds Rocco
- Promotional Featurettes
- Keeping it Real
- Making of The Drop
- Making Brooklyn Your Own
- Rocco the Dog
- Character Profile: James Gandolfini
- Audio Commentary by Michael R. Roskam and Dennis Lehane
The Drop features the last performance of James Gandolfini, and it’s worth picking up for more reasons than just that. Hardy, Rapace and Schoenaerts are all terrific as well, and the script displays a grit and grime that’s uncommon to see on screen.
