Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has added director Clint Eastwood’s latest movie, American Sniper, to its line-up, bringing the film to Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in May.
“American Sniper” stars Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, whose skills as a sniper made him a hero on the battlefield. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.
Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.
Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
The release will include the Featurette ”One Soldier’s Story: The Journey of American Sniper”, in which you can join director Clint Eastwood and his creative team, along with
Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, as they overcome enormous creative and logistic obstacles to make a film that brings the truth of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s story to the screen.
In addition, the release will also feature Making of American Sniper Featurette.
“American Sniper” arrives on May 19 with a $44.95 sticker price for the Blu-Ray/DVD + DigitalHD combo pack, and $28.98 for the DVD-only version.
