Darkest Hour releases to Blu-ray & DVD, Feb. 27

Darkest-Hour-Blu-ray-720pxJust in time for the 2018 Academy Awards, Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman will release to Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The film, a biographical drama about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during World War II, has been nominated for six Oscars including the prestigious Best Motion Picture of the Year and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role awards, among four other nominations for production.

So far, we don’t have any information about a 4k disc release of Darkest Hour [Updated: ‘Darkest Hour’ coming to Ultra HD Blu-ray], but given the excellent work of cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel (nominated for Best Achievement in Cinematography), we would hope an Ultra HD Blu-ray edition with High Dynamic Range (HDR) color would be in the works. (Although, the film can be purchased in Digital 4k/HDR from iTunes, and in Digital UHD from Fandango and Google Play.)

On Blu-ray, Darkest Hour is formatted in 1080p using MPEG-4 AVC at 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio. The soundtrack is offered in immersive Dolby Atmos backed by Dolby TrueHD 7.1 at 24-bits.

Extra bonus features include the featurettes Into Darkest Hour and Gary Oldman: Becoming Churchill, as well as feature commentary with Director Joe Wright. The 2-disc Blu-ray combo edition from Universal Pictures also includes a DVD and Digital HD copy redeemable with Movies Anywhere.

Darkest Hour on Blu-ray is list-priced $34.99 but pre-orders are available for $19.96 via Amazon (see below) or Best Buy $22.99.
