Warner Legal Dramas on Blu-ray

Posted July 11, 2012 08:48 AM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.In the fall, Warner Home Entertainment will bring two legal dramas to Blu-ray: The Bonfire of the Vanities and The Client.

From Warner's official synopses:

The Bonfire of the Vanities -

"A hit-and-run accident in the Bronx prompts a citywide conflict, fueled by ambitious politicians, greedy lawyers, and jaded ministers with a wealthy businessman (Tom Hanks, Saving Private Ryan) in the center of the controversy. Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Wolfe, director Brian De Palma's film co-stars Bruce Willis (Die Hard), Melanie Griffith (Something Wild), Kim Cattrall (Big Trouble in Little China), Saul Rubinek (True Romance), and Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption)."

The Client -

"Brad Renfro (Sleepers) plays Mark Sway, an eleven-year-old torn between what he knows and what he can never tell. A hitman (Anthony LaPaglia, So I Married an Axe Murderer) will snuff him in half a heartbeat if Mark reveals what he learned about a Mob murder. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Tommy Lee Jones, U.S. Marshals) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Suddenly, Mark isn't a boy playing air guitar anymore. He's a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous but unseasoned attorney (Susan Sarandon, Dead Man Walking) who risks her career for him....but never imagines she'll also risk her life. Director Joel Schumacher's film features a sterling ensemble cast that includes Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Anthony Edwards (Zodiac), J.T. Walsh (The Negotiator), Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Ossie Davis (Do the Right Thing), Anthony Heald (The Silence of the Lambs), Will Patton (Meek's Cutoff), Bradley Whitford (The Cabin in the Woods), and William H. Macy (Shameless)."

Warner's Blu-ray will present The Bonfire of the Vanities in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio and The Client in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio. Further technical and supplementary details are still unknown.

Both The Bonfire of the Vanities and The Client are expected to street on November 6th.

Good to see 'The Client' coming to BD. Hopefully we will see all of the John Grisham stories on BD soon.

The Client was a solid film. But for me it's always good to see more De Palma on BD. I'd really like Body Double to be released sometime in the near future.

While this is good news, I wish we would get some comedies like the two Ace Venturas and Starsky and Hutch.

The Client is a buy because it's good. The Bonfire of the Vanities will be bought because it's DePalma, I saw it years after the original release while not great it's watchable and will get when price is right.

Glad to see The Client. Wondering why The Firm has been a Best Buy Exclusive for over 3 years.

Nice to see WHV continuing their support for "deep" catalog. THE CLIENT's serviceable DVD makes the pic's BD release all the more welcome.

@Schoecp: I think THE FIRM was released as a Best Buy exclu in May 2011. In any event, it's slated for general release (along with several other former BB exclusives from Paramount) on September 12, 2012.

If "Bonfire of the Vanities" is a "drama", then it must be a different, really bad movie, than I saw.

I saw "The Client" on HDMovies recently it looked quite nice so hopefully transfer will be good. I suspect "The Bonfire of the Vanities" will be soft and alot of people will complain but that's how many of DePalma's flick look ex. Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Body Double.

Um the Firm came out at the end of May in 2011 so it has not been a BB exclusive for over 3 years.

Another De Palma in BD is a great news, but I hope that Body Double will be released soon!
