With SOURCE CODE coming to the end of it’s theatrical release in the US & UK, seems like a good time to look forward to the the home release on DVD and Blu-Ray. And we now have dates to pop on the calendar.

The US release has been reported on most sites as 26th July, and has been accompanied by quite different artwork (via dvdactive ) for the pack shots, than on the theatrical release. This appears to be an early trade advert, so things can change between now and release.

SOURCE CODE DVD / Blu-Ray Trade advertisement with some early package artworkWe’ve also had confirmation this morning of the UK DVD / Blu-Ray release of SOURCE CODE from online retailers play.com and Amazon UK, with play.com offering an exclusive Steelbook packaging on both DVD & Blu-Ray. Both confirm UK release date as 15th August 2011.

SOURCE CODE - play.com - SteelbookAll pack artwork subject to change at the moment, but certainly seems that the UK release is sticking with the UK theatrical release design. All seem to agree on the special features though:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Duncan Jones, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
  • Access: SOURCE CODE – featurette.
  • Cast and Crew insights.
  • Dynamic, scene specific focal points.

Having watched and listened to a fair amount of interviews with Duncan & Jake during the SOURCE CODE promotional tour, am now really looking forward to listening to the audio commentary, like a bloomin comedy double act they are, and could probably quite easily take that up if this movie business don’t pan out as well as it is at the moment.

Will keep you updated if anything changes 🙂
