20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is preparing a Blu-Ray Disc version of the acclaimed film The Last King Of Scotland for release in February.
As Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, Forest Whitaker gives “one of the greatest performances of modern movie history” (Wall Street Journal), one that the Associated Press calls “nothing short of Oscar® worthy.” This is Amin’s incredible story as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a young Scotsman who becomes the volatile leader’s personal physician, due in part to Amin’s unexpected passion for Scottish culture – Amin even proclaims himself “The Last King of Scotland”. Seduced by Amin’s charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan’s dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape. Inspired by real people and events, this gripping, suspenseful stunner is filled with performances you will never forget.
Arriving in 1080p high definition with DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio, the release will also contain a Commentary Track By Director Kevin MacDonald, as well as 7 Deleted Scenes, also with optional Commentary by Kevin MacDonald. The disc will contain the Documentary ”Capturing Idi Amin”, along with the Interview Featurette Forest Whitaker on portraying Idi Amin”. Also included is the
Fox Movie Channel Presents Featurette ”Casting Session – The Last King Of Scotland” and the movie’s Trailer.
“The Last King Of Scotland” can play on a Blu-Ray player near you on February 2 for $29.98.
