Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has this week announced the eagerly-anticipated release of American Sniper, the latest film from director Clint Eastwood. Nominated for six Oscars, as well as becoming 2014’s highest-grossing domestic film with $346 million ($540million worldwide), Sniper stars Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller.
U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Cooper) is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.
Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
The Blu-ray release of American Sniper is presented in 1080p with 7.1 surround and Dolby Atmos support. Special features are set to include:
–One Soldier’s Story: The Journey of American Sniper
–The Making of American Sniper
American Sniper will be released in the US on Blu-ray on May 19th.
