Midnight in Paris Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted October 10, 2011 10:20 AM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Classics have revealed that they will release on Blu-ray Woody Allen's love letter to the French capital Midnight in Paris (2011), starring Owen Wilson (The Darjeeling Limited), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), and Kurt Fuller (The Pursuit of Happyness). Earlier this year, the film had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy set in Paris about a family that goes there because of business, and two young people who are engaged to be married in the Fall have experiences there that change their lives. It's about a young man's great love for a city, Paris, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.

Update: Sony's Blu-ray presents the film in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Sony's official press release notes that the disc will have a 3.0 LCR audio track and the following bonus supplements:
  • Midnight in Cannes featurette
  • Photo gallery
Midnight in Paris - which was financed by Mediapro, the Spanish company that also funded Woody Allen's last two films, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger - is set to arrive on December 20th. Amazon pre-orders are now available.

Looking forward to this. Just wish it were being released sooner (the Region B French version is out in 2 days).

Wow, this was definitely one of the lengthier transitions to video -- 6 months! (released theatrically in early June). However, it'll make for nice viewing over the Xmas holidays

Yeah! My favorite film of the year so far. It is still playing at the Arclight Hollywood and has been there since May.

Eh, it was OK. The writing was a bit lazy in that the movie is little more than an intellectual writer's "Wouldn't it be great to meet famous writers?" fantasy with a platitude for a conclusion. At least Woody Allen wasn't playing Woody Allen. Marion Cotillard must be too old for him.

I really liked it. I wish Woody would (or would let someone) beef up his Blu/DVD releases though.

+1 on the hopefully a reasonable price on release week.

Reminds me I have a few of his dvds still needing a view yet (most of those that weren't in the 3 box sets). Doubtful many of them will be getting a blu treatment since seemingly several of them are out of print altogether. Maybe we'll be surprised some day, preferably soon.

I enjoyed immensely. Much more than I expected to. Looking forward to the Blu.

It's a longer transition to video because it's actually still playing in theatres in some cities. It's still playing in New York, for example. And since this has been the best performing Woody Allen film in years, they're going to milk it to get as much revenue as they can, because most of his films lose money in the theatrical run.

This was a great film...probably the best of his of the last 20 years or so.

As for the sound, even though it's LCR, expect it to be mono. All of Allen's films are mono. He apparently does not like stereo sound at all.

I don't think the writing was lazy at all as it respects the audience ability to know who these characters are.

One of Woody Allen's better films in recent memory, I'll pick it up at some point down the road. I thought the writing was rather good.

Day 1 for me. This will be my 4th Woody Allen blu-ray. I'm looking forward to seeing more of his catalog on blu.

It's still playing theatrically in DC as well. It's probably the "word of mouth" release of the year. Easily the best film I've seen this year. Should be gorgeous on Blu-Ray.
