Miramax and Disney Home Entertainment today announced the release date for No County for Old Men on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. Both versions of the film, which stars Tommy Lee Jones, will hit retailers on March 11. The Blu-ray bonus features are outlined below.
No Country for Old Men was written, directed and produced by the Cohen brothers (Joel and Ethan Cohen), and is arguably the brothers’ most gripping and ambitious film yet. No Country for Old Men is based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy (in 2007, for Fiction for The Road).
In the movie, violence and mayhem erupt in the parched scrubland and panoramic skies of West Texas after Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) stumbles on a suitcase containing $2 million dollars at the site of drug deal gone bad. Fleeing with the money, he is stalked relentlessly by hired gun Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), an unstoppable sociopathic killer unafraid to leave a bloody trail in the wake of his cold-blooded search to recover the cash. As Moss scrambles to hang on to the money and his life, small-town sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) closes in on both men in a tautly plotted cat-and-mouse game.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray Disc include the same bonus features:
- Working with the Coens: Reflections of Cast and Crew: Learn more about Joel and Ethan Coen from the perspective of their collaborators, cast and crew.
- The Making of No Country For Old Men: Take a journey through the Coen Brothers’ process and back to their roots as storytellers with a unique voice and vision.
