Sony has announced the Oscar nominated black and white silent film, The Artist, for Blu-Ray this April. The film stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo and is about a fading movie star in 1927 Hollywood.

Director Michel HazanaviciusThe Artist is probably going to take home all of the big Oscars this season and while I don’t really agree with that decision I do think the films good intentions deserve some sort of credit. It’s a silent black and white film in modern day with mostly unknowns starring (aside from John Goodman) and its heart is in the right place. There are just so many more better films out there right now that deserve this level of praise, yet Hollywood keeps on praising the film because of its classic roots.

Not everyone feels the same way as I do though. As a matter of fact, most people enjoyed the film very much. Our very own Kristal Cooper had this to say about the film in her review.

Of course cinephiles will flock to see a film that tests the boundaries of modern entertainment but will a more general audience? Let’s hope so. The Artist is a movie that deserves to be seen and appreciated by everyone.

The Blu-Ray will come with a 1080p video transfer. The audio track isn’t confirmed just yet, but we do have a list of special features that will be on the disc. Check them out below.

  • Two behind-the-scenes featurettes (The Making of a Hollywood Love Story, Hollywood as a Character: The Locations of The Artist)
  • Q & A with the filmmakers and cast
  • Blooper reel

The Artist will hit Blu-Ray on April 24th, 2012.

I'm an avid watcher of films and I just love discussing and sharing them with the world. I enjoy horror, sci-fi and mostly any genre under the sun, plus I have a slight obsession with Blu-ray's and the whole high definition craze.
