Toby Maguire’s Brothers Reunite on Blu-ray!

BrothersHere’s one I unfortunately did not catch in the theaters, but our Gregg Senko did.  Brothers comes highly recommended from him (see here), so I think I will give it a try the second time around on the Blu-ray format.  Just my luck as Lionsgate has announced a March 23rd release date for the film on the Blu-ray format.  The film features an all-star cast including Toby Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman and more.  Not too much is know about the Blu-ray’s technical details and features, but make sure to check out the full press release below from Lionsgate to whet your appetite for this riveting release. 

Lionsgate is proud to announce the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Brothers arriving on March 23rd

Featuring an all-star cast that includes a Golden Globe® nominated performance from Toby Maguire, Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, 2005), Academy Award® nominee Natalie Portman (Closer, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role, 2004), Academy Award®  nominee Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, 1983) and Emmy® winner Mare Winningham (“George Wallace,” Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie, 1998), the explosive film Brothers arrives on DVD and Blu-ray Disc this March.  Directed by six-time Academy Award® nominee Jim Sheridan (In the Name of the Father, Best Director, 1994), the film tells the compelling tale of how two brothers come to terms with issues of love, loyalty and manhood with the woman caught between them.  The DVD and Blu-ray disc contain numerous bonus materials that include two featurettes plus a director commentary.  A truly riveting drama with superb performances, Brothers is a film not to be missed!  

A Marine about to embark on his fourth tour of duty, Sam (Maguire) is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, the aptly named Grace (Portman), with whom he has two young daughters.  Tommy (Gyllenhaal), his charismatic younger brother, is a drifter just out of jail who’s always gotten by on wit and charm.   He slides easily into his role as family provocateur on his first night out of prison, which is also Sam’s farewell dinner with their parents, Elsie (Winningham) and Hank Cahill (Shepard).  When Sam’s Blackhawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains of Afghanistan, the worst is presumed, leaving an enormous void in the family.  Tommy steps in to fill the void with consequences that will shake the foundation of the entire family.


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
