British distributors Second Sight Films have revealed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray French director Jean-Jacques Beineix's 37°2 le matin a.k.a Betty Blue (1986), starring Jean-Hugues Anglade, Béatrice Dalle, and Gérard Darmon.

There they team up with another couple, who run a pizza joint, before moving south, where Betty begins her tragic demise into madness and eventual death.
The British distributors have confirmed that their upcoming Blu-ray release of Betty Blue will contain the theatrical version and the longer Director's Cut of the film. The distributors are also planning to include new interviews with director Jean-Jacques Beineix and actress Beatrice Dalle.
