Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the release dates for 47 Ronin on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD. As with many titles these days, the Digital HD format will precede the disc versions by a couple weeks, releasing on Tuesday, March 18. The Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD editions will hit shelves on Tuesday, April 1. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Ko Shibasaki and reimagines the Japanese tale of the 47 Ronin.
While you’ll be able to purchase the digital version of the 47 Ronin before the packaged media, the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray Combo Packs will also contain Digital HD copies via UltraViolet access code. So if you can wait a couple weeks, you’ll get a digital version of the film along with multiple hard copies.
Bonus material on all three disc disc editions of the film include deleted scenes and the featurette “RE-FORGING THE LEGEND.” Additional material on the Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D packs includes the exclusive featurettes “KEANU & KAI,” “STEEL FURY: THE FIGHTS OF 47 RONIN,” and “MYTHS, MAGIC & MONSTERS: THE FX OF 47 RONIN.”
47 Ronin on Blu-ray Disc is formatted in 1080p Full HD at 2.40:1 widescreen aspect ratio and a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack.
