Academy Award for Best Picture nominees Arrival, Lion, Manchester by the Sea, and the winner Moonlight, have all been given UK Blu-ray release dates.
Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner, will land on Blu-ray in the UK on 20th March, following its US release. As twelve spaceships appear around Earth, an elite team – led by linguistics expert Louise Banks – must try to ascertain their motives, while also keeping the planet calm.
Casey Affleck leads in Manchester by the Sea – due on Blu-ray on 15th May (and already out in the US) – which tells the emotional story of an uncle who is compelled to return home to care for his nephew, after the tragic death of his brother.
Based on a true story, Lion recounts the extraordinary tale of a young Indian boy who finds himself thousands of miles from home, after boarding a decommissioned train. Years later, after being adopted, he attempts to find his way home. You can catch Dev Patel’s compelling performance on Blu-ray from 11th April in the US and 22nd May in the UK.
Finally, the winner of the now infamous Academy Award for Best Picture, Moonlight will appear on Blu-ray in the UK on the 19th June (it’s already available in the US). Starring Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris and Janelle Monáe, Moonlight tells the story of a young man who grows up in a rough neighbourhood of Miami.
