Paramount Bringing Flight To Blu-Ray In February


Paramount has announced Robert Zemeckis’ Oscar-nominated Flight for Blu-Ray in February. The film stars Denzel Washington, John Goodman and Don Cheadle.

Director Robert Zemeckis has had his nose up the digitally-animated motion-capture world for the better part of the last decade. His last live-action film was the Tom Hanks-starring Cast Away and quite frankly it has been far too long.

Now, years later he’s returned with Flight. The film follows a pilot that miraculously lands a plane after a deadly crash. What is later revealed is the theme of addiction and just how powerful it is once it grabs a hold of you. Denzel Washington has already earned an Oscar nomination for best leading role and I’d have a hard time arguing against it, because he truly does take this film to new heights.

Zemeckis’ direction is solid, working on a not-too-shabby script, but the real winners are in the performances, led by Washington and supported by guys like John Goodman and Don Cheadle.

I wouldn’t call Flight a perfect film, but it soars in the character bits and it makes for a strong AA commercial.

Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:

With career-best work from Denzel Washington and a fascinating, personal story, Robert Zemeckis’ Flight offers smart and mature commercial drama at its very best.

Paramount will be bringing the film to Blu-Ray in a Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. The following bonus material has been confirmed:

  • Origins of Flight
  • The Making of Flight
  • Anatomy of a Plane Crash
  • Q&A Highlights
  • Digital Copy

Flight will be released in stores and online in just a little under a month on February 5th, 2013.
