Drive Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted November 12, 2011 07:46 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesIn an early announcement to retailers, Sony Pictures has revealed that it will release on Blu-ray Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn's (Bronson, Valhalla Rising) Drive (2010), starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. Earlier this year, the film, which was distributed theatrically in the U.S. by FilmDistrict Pictures, won Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).

Update: The Blu-ray presents the film in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio sound. The disc also contains a number of bonus materials, including:
  • Five behind-the-scenes featurettes:
  • - Drive Without A Driver: Talking with Director Nicolas Winding Refn
    - I Drive
    - Under The Hood
    - Driver and Irene
    - Cut To The Chase
Street date is January 31.

@chillwill92

It's the best blind buy you could possibly make. You just have to watch it with the right expectations. Don't go in thinking it'll be a fast paced action movie. There's not much dialogue, it takes its time and actually earns it violence, which also doesn't disappoint by the way. AMAZING FILM! A true life changer! A total instant classic!

Do yourself a favor. Blind buy and don't watch ONE SINGLE FRAME! For the first time in years I managed to avoid trailers and walk in based solely on word of mouth and reviews.

After seeing the movie I watched the trailer and found most of the moments that shocked me spoiled lol.

I'd love to own this, but I'm torn on whether I should wait or not. Here's what the director Nicolas Winding Refn said about this:

“The version that is released now, like soon, is fairly standard. It does not include any audio commentaries with either Ryan or myself, and it does not include any secret, revealing elements, or mysteries solved, or a huge amount of spinoffs. Because I’m a Blu-ray fanatic – no, fanatic, like religiously – I hope that in the near future, I will be able to release a blu-ray that’s not just a movie, but also one that describes the process of the filmmaking, and answers some of the more mysterious elements of the success of that it has achieved.”

“I think it will be fun sometime next year to just start thinking about putting it all together. By then it has played itself through in all of the countries in the world, and all of the various Blu-ray editions have been released. So that would be the time to make, what I would say would be the ‘Queen’ version. That’s what is in the plan for Ryan and I.”

Who knows how long that'll be in the future, if at all.

ckyrico,

Thanks for posting that little tidbit, but let me tell you, I don't think I can wait that long to have a nice deluxe edition. This is a flick that I will GLADLY double dip on in the future.

I'm calling 5.0's for picture and audio, the soundtrack on this movie is insane.

Im certainly intrigued by all the comments here and elsewhere on this one. When I saw the film title I automatically thought "oh here we go again, another fast & furious film to be ignored". But its obviously not. The fact that a lot of people who thought it was a Fast & Furious clone got annoyed because it wasnt makes me want to watch it!

Right, Im not watching any trailers on this one and will rent at the first opportunity because I never blind-buy.

Without a doubt, one of the best acting performances of the year by Ryan Gosling - excellent movie.

@ RiffFan924

Agreed. Drive is the one movie I've seen in 2011 where after leaving the theater, I immediately couldn't wait to own it on Blu-ray. And even though Refn seems to promise a much more meaty BD package of the film in about a year, I'll still buy this first bare-bones version and very happily buy whatever special edition comes along later. This is the best film of the last 2 years in my mind, and in any case the PQ and AQ will assuredly be impeccable.

Thus far one of the the best films of the year-only Tree of Life and Moneyball rival it. There is little doubt, however, it is the coolest picture of the year and the best neo-noir in years. Albert Brooks deserves an acting nomination and Ryan Gosling is revelatory in his minimalist style. Not since Viggo Mortensen's performances of a few years back, has an actor so captivated the screen. This is definitely a first day purchase.

I hope he's planning to give Pusher trilogy the same treatment....

'Drive' belongs in the Criterion Collection, but oh well.

I'm definitely buying this title, as long as the picture and sound are as awesome as in the theatrical release.

One of the best films of the year for sure. I LOVED it. Ryan Gosling is AMAZING and deserves an Oscar nomination for his performance. This deserves several nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actress (Carey Mulligan). Can't wait to buy it.
