Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has given District 9 a green light to touch down December 29 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
The relatively low budget with big returns sci-fi thriller from filmmaker Neill Blomkamp, starring Sharlto Copley and presented by Peter Jackson comes to Blu-ray in 1.85:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Sony has confirmed a two-disc Blu-ray release though we are unsure at this time if the second disc will include bonus features or a digital copy. The former is a better guess at this time due to a digital copy not appearing in the features list as outlined below:
- Joburg From Above: Satellite and Schematics of the World of District 9 – Interactive Map
- Director’s Commentary
- Koobus Big Gun
- The Alien Agenda: A Filmmaker’s Log Three-Part Documentary
- The Alien Agenda: A Filmmaker’s Log – Chapter 3: Refining District 9
- Metamorphosis: The Transformation of Wikus
- Innovation: Acting and Improvisation
- Conception and Design: Creating the World of District 9
- Alien Generation: Visual Effects
Amazon.com has yet to begin taking District 9 pre-orders but we will be sure to add the active listing to our Blu-ray pre-order page when it is available. District 9 carries an SRP of $39.95.
