Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today that Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is slated to hit DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack on February 26. You can check out the stylish cover (based on a French poster) and watch a trailer for the release below.
The 1950s-set drama centers on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “The Master” (Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Moneyball) who creates a belief system which catches on with other lost souls – and a young WW-II veteran (Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator) who becomes his right-hand man. In addition to Hoffman and Phoenix, the film also stars Amy Adams (Doubt) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park).
Although subject to change, The Master‘s special features are planned to include: “Back Beyond” which features outtakes and additional scenes edited to music by Johnny Greenwood; “Unguided Message,” an 8 minute short / behind the scenes; Teasers/ Trailers. The Combo Pack also includes an additional special feature “Let There Be Light (1946), John Huston’s landmark documentary about WW-II veterans.”
A SRP of $39.99 is set for the Blu-ray Combo Pack and $29.98 for the DVD.
