Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the release dates for Lucy to home media formats including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital HD. The digital release of Lucy will pre-date disc releases by two weeks, launching on Tuesday, January 6, 2015. Blu-ray, DVD, and rental options will follow on January 20, 2015.
For extra material, both the Blu-ray Disc and DVD will include the bonus “Cerebral Capacity – The True Science of Lucy” hosted by Morgan Freeman. In addition, the Blu-ray Disc combo pack will include the exclusive featurette “The Evolution of Lucy” featuring Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman and Director Luc Besson.
The Blu-ray Combo pack from Universal also packs access codes for a Digital HD copy of the film redeemable though UltraViolet or iTunes. The inclusion of iTunes is always a nice addition to combo editions, allowing Apple users (and Windows users with iTunes) to expand upon their digital movie library.
On Blu-ray Disc, Lucy is formatted in 1080p at 2.40:1 widescreen aspect ratio with English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0.
