L.A. Confidential hits the streets

A DVD release and Blu-Ray Disc are both coming for the noir piece L.A. Confidential later this year thanks to Warner Home Video.

Three cops (Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce), a call girl (Kim Basinger), a mysterious millionaire (David Strathairn), a tabloid journalist (Danny DeVito), and the Chief of Detectives (James Cromwell) fuel a labyrinthine plot rife with mystery, ambition, romance, and humor. What you’ll see is off the record, on the QT and very hush-hush.
