Universal StudiosUniversal Studios Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release Focus Features' Moonrise Kingdom as a Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 16th.

Special Features:

  • Welcome to The Island of New Penzance: Bob Balaban narrates a series of guided tours from the locations of Moonrise Kingdom featuring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Wes Anderson
  • Set Tour With Bill Murray: Bill Murray personally takes viewers on a tour of the Moonrise Kingdom sets.

Note: In May, Moonrise Kingdom set a new record in the U.S. Focus Features announced that the film recorded the highest per-theatre North American gross ever for a non-animated film. The previous record was held by Bill Condon's Dreamgirls.

Despite a Criterion release obviously coming soon, I think I'll still pick this up. Too great of a movie to pass up.

Day 1, one of the best films all year! And for people waiting for a Criterion release, you may be waiting a long time. Fantastic Mr. Fox has yet to come out on criterion and its been out for over 2 years...

I want a Criteion version, too. However, I'll want to watch the film before that time. Buy now, upgrade later.

Will be getting this, definitely. Didn't get to see it in theater. Don't see a reason to wait for a Criterion release. We'll see Life Aquatic or even Fantastic Mr. Fox before we'll see this from them. An at least two year wait? No thanks.

I could say I'll wait for the Criterion version, but I know I'll end up buying this one and double dipping later on, oh well, it's a great movie!

This is my favorite Anderson film, so it's a first-day purchase for me. I'll probably be upgrading whenever Criterion releases it, though, haha.

Best Film of 2012 (so far) hands down! I'll own it no matter who puts it out!

Also why is everyone here talking about a Criterion Edition of this. Nothing is mentioned here about it, or on their website. I know Andersons' work is ends up there but do you guys know it's a FACT that EVERY Anderson film is picked up by Criterion? Does he have some kind of deal with them? just curious

It's not a given that it'll wind up a Criterion and even if it does, it's going to be way longer than I'm willing to wait to own a movie this great. I'll simply double-dip if a Criterion comes to pass. Still my favorite film of the year and we're two-thirds of the way through but admittedly the best films often wind up releasing toward year's end. I expect several films to top this one (among them could be The Hobbit, Django Unchained, The Master & Lincoln) but no way it falls out of the top 5-7 of the year for me though.

Well considering this a brand new movie, I'm sure the Universal transfer will be fine and I certainly don't need to wait for a Criterion version that may or may not ever come. I loved this movie and I'll enjoy watching it again while you guys feel some bizarre need to wait.

I really enjoyed this film. All of the cast is excellent. Surprisingly risque (for an American film) in how it dealt with the kids' young romance. The kids are great, as well as Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban, and, in the year's most wonderful cameo, an unbilled Harvey Keitel. Those sets are phenomenal; the film should get an Oscar for Art direction. Cinemtography,too. And then there's that wonderful Hank Williams,Sr. music. Just a great time, really. One of the year's best films.

I love Bottle Rocket and Rushmore, but with Life Aquatic, Royal Tenenbaums and this movie Wes Anderson has shown himself to be a bit of a one-trick pony--beautifully shot movies with so-quirky-they're-contrived characters saying and doing unnatural things. It's cute for a while, but his movies are a real challenge for those of us who enjoy believable characters being compelled by realistic motivations. Movies like this are saturated with form and style but have so little substance. It's disappointing to see a personal favorite's popularity increase as the quality of his output declines.

I already have Moonrise Kingdom on preorder and have for some time. This film is one of Wes Anderson's best, possibly the best in his career.

Given that this is one of my favorite films of this year so far, I don't mind acquiring Universal's blu-ray, whether or not the Criterion Collection releases its own, better version at some point. Since Criterion has released nearly all of Anderson's films, it does seem a strong possibility it will eventually also tackle Moonrise. But, there's no need to hold my breath.

Judging by (two) other Universal releases (Fear & Loathing, Traffic) that eventually got a Criterion "upgrade" you can expect 9-15 months wait. Those were catalog titles though, this is brand spanking new. Considering that all his other films were released by Criterion, the odds aren't staggering against this one also ending up there, however, when it comes to the CC, nobody can tell. Was a bit disappointed that they didn't get to release Melancholia. 15th of the month is their usual announcement-day, wonder what they have for us today.

Just picked up Royals Tenanbaums at Best buy for $20 on Blu and got Rushmore during the B&B 50% off sale. Will be getting this title day one. Then at the next B&B sale(oct or nov im guessing) ill get Bottle rocket and Darj L. Now wheres....The gam...oops....I mean where is The Life Aquatic on Blu?!

For all waiting on a Criterion Edition, I wouldn'y hold your breath, and this versions seems to have some nice extras.

Now for other Criterions needing to be pressed, wheres Time Bandits, Brazil on Blu?!

@ Five Inches, Oh my gosh, Criterion REALLY had a treat for us with their announcement today! Jesus. They have Pasolini's 'Trilogy of Life' ("Decameron","Canterbury Tales", "Arabian Nights"), Godard's "Weekend", Cimino's fully uncut Director's Cut of "Heaven's Gate", a blu of "Rashomon", and an Eclipse set of Japanese horror films, ALL in November!!!
