Anchor Bay announces The King’s Speech

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company just announced the highly anticipated Academy Award nominated movie The King’s Speech for release on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in April.

After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon) and the scandalous abdication of his brother King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), Bertie (Colin Firth) – who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life – is suddenly crowned King George VI of England.  With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually forge a genuine friendship.  Through this unexpected bond, the new monarch will overcome his stammer to find his voice, inspire his people, and rally the world.

“The King’s Speech” will include a Commentary Track by director Tom Hooper, a Making-of Featurette as well as Historic Archival Footage of the actual King George VI.

Arriving on April 19, “The King’s Speech” can be yours for $29.98 on DVD or $39.99 on Blu-Ray Disc.
