Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has scheduled The Social Network for release in January on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc.
David Fincher’s “The Social Network” is the stunning tale of a new breed of cultural insurgent: a punk genius who sparked a revolution and changed the face of human interaction for a generation, and perhaps forever. Shot through with emotional brutality and unexpected humor, this superbly crafted film chronicles the formation of Facebook and the battles over ownership that followed upon the website’s unfathomable success. With a complex, incisive screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and a brilliant cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake, “The Social Network” bears witness to the birth of an idea that rewove the fabric of society even as it unraveled the friendship of its creators.
The 2-disc DVD version will feature an anamorphic widescreen version of the film with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. The release will also include an Audio Commentary with director David Fincher, as well as a second Audio Commentary with Writer Aaron Sorkin and members of the cast.
On the second disc of the set you will find a 4-part Documentary called “How did they ever make a movie of Facebook?” as well as additional featurettes on the film’s score, visuals and the post production. A Multi-Angle Scene Breakdown is also included, as well as a look at the first draft and Swarmatron.
Arriving also on 2 discs, the Blu-Ray version will feature a 1080p high definition transfer with DTS 5.1 audio. It will contain the same bonus materials as the DVD version, though this time in high definition.
“The Social Network” will be on store shelves on January 11 for $28.96 on DVD and $34.95 on Blu-Ray Disc.
