Platoon 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Release Date and Details

Oliver Stone’s Platoon turns 25 this year which has provided MGM Home Entertainment the perfect excuse to finally deliver the war epic on Blu-ray Disc. Not that Charlie Sheen’s recently discovered mega-stardom hurts.

Today MGM officially announced that Platoon starring a much younger and saner Sheen, Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, John C. McGinley, Forest Whitaker, Kevin Dillon, Keith David and Johnny Depp is coming to Blu-ray on May 24 in a DVD combo pack set. The video and audio have been remastered into a 1080p and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio presentation, respectively, so this should prove to be the definitive Platoon home video viewing experience.

There are numerous bonus features packed into this set including:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Oliver Stone
  • Audio Commentary with Military Advisor Dale Dye
  • Deleted & Extended Scenes
  • Flashback to Platoon
    • Snapshot in Time: 1967-1968
    • Creating the ‘Nam
    • Raw Wounds: The Legacy of Platoon
  • Documentaries
