New Line Home Entertainment and Warner Home Video have just scheduled Robert Altman’s acclaimed The Player for release on Blu-Ray Disc this fall.
“Movies. Now more than ever!” That’s the motto of the movie studio where fast-tracking exec Griffin Bell (Tim Robbins) works. But rumor has it a power play could push Bell out. And a rejected writer who’s sending anonymous death threats could push him under. Robert Altman directs this acclaimed and satiric love/hate valentine to Hollywood, and from the bravura opening tracking shot to the spot-the-star cameos (60+!) to the inside skinny of studio life to the gleeful finale, you’re in good, knowing hands. The Player. Now more than ever!
Featuring a 1080p high definition transfer with high definition audio, the release will also include a Commentary Track by Director Robert Altman and Writer Michael Tolkin, as well as Additional Scenes and the Featurette ”One on One with Robert Altman”. The movie’s Theatrical Trailer will also be included.
“ThE Player” is slated for release on September 7 for $24.98.
