Posted February 4, 2014 06:01 PM by Webmaster

20th Century FoxTwentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray acclaimed director Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave (2013), starring Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Paul Giamatti, Paul Dano, and Benedict Cumberbatch. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the United States on March 4th.

12 Years a Slave has been nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Directing, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role.

Official synopsis: Based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Pitt) will forever alter his life.

Special Features:
  • A Historical Portrait
  • The Team
  • The Score
Note: Director McQueen's Hunger (2008) and Shame (2011) are already out on Blu-ray in the United States. You can see our listings and reviews of these releases here and here.

Wish there was more special features but maybe the ones we do have will be decent length and not little snippets. Looking forward to it.

Still on the fence about owning a film about slavery

Such a powerful film, I'm not sure I'd watch it often but it's film I feel deserves to be owned.

i thought all new movies would be mastered in 4K now since American Hustle is

I think this film was really good.Alot of good acting and a unreal story.

Terrific film. Would've been nice for a McQueen/Fassbender commentary.

@mredman: What's the point when the final result is still in 1080P? This is just the new variation of the Superbit ploy.

@reidw The point would be to future-proof the film for exhibition on superior formats down the line.

Saw it in the theater, it was good, don't need to own it though, felt the same about American Hustle, good but certainly not great.

I feel like it will eventually get a better release, so I think I will fight off the urge to buy for a while unless there is a big sale.

Easily one of the best films of 2013. Unfortunately, only about 30% of blu-ray.com members will watch it because it lacks CGI and non stop explosions.

Was waiting to see this on blu-ray. Wasn't sure I could handle it on a giant screen.

One of the most depressing and best movies ever made. It is equal to Shindler's List as a stunning examination of man's humanity to man

If Armond White didn't like it then it can't be good.

Once again, an almost bare-bones edition... will once again put this one in the "bargain bin ($7 and less)/big boosted special edition" file... this file is getting ridiculously big.

I didn't see this in theaters...but "Hunger" and "Shame" are both AMAZING. Day one for me!

bluknight1: How does this future proof it? It is still going to be 1080P even on a 4K display. Sure it can be upconverted but that is just a stopgap measure until the Ultra HD/4K version is released and that one will likely be remastered in 8K and downgraded to 4K just to keep the gullible happy.

@-jonny- : "Important subject matter does not a good film make."

Inverted syntax does not profundity confer.

"Important subject matter does not a good film make."

True, but excellent acting, excellent writing, excellent cinematography, excellent directing, & an excellent score certainly helped make 12 Years a Slave a great film.

Hats off to anyone who can watch this more than once. Powerful film but brutal beyond belief, once in theaters is enough for a while, maybe even a lifetime.
