Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones will be out on DVD and Blu-Ray April 20th from Paramount Home Entertainment! I heard the book is good but different than the movie. I’m not sure how either are or if I’ll even end up liking this or not. But since it’s Peter Jackson, I’ll at least give the movie a chance and see it when it comes on DVD. Anyone else see this?
Three-time Academy Award® winner Peter Jackson directs the stunning fantasy thriller THE LOVELY BONES, arriving on DVD, two-disc Blu-ray and VOD April 20, 2010 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The extraordinary story of one girl’s life and everything that came after, THE LOVELY BONES is filled with thrilling suspense, hope and the redeeming power of love. When 14-year-old Susie Salmon was murdered, she left her unfinished life behind. But now from her place in a strange but beautiful in-between world, she must help her father catch her killer and protect her family before she can finally move on.
The film features an extraordinary cast including Academy Award® nominee Mark Wahlberg (The Departed), Academy Award® winners Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener) and Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking), Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) and Stanley Tucci (Julie & Julia) in a role that earned him an Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Based on the best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, the screenplay was written by Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens and Peter Jackson. Bursting with brilliant fantasy, THE LOVELY BONES “cuts a path to a humanity that supersedes life and death” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), resulting in a film that is “complex, alluring and enthralling” (Rex Reed, New York Observer).
THE LOVELY BONES two-disc Blu-ray features nearly three hours of bonus content including an immersive, 15-week production diary hosted by Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens that provides in-depth, behind-the-scenes access to the film’s shoot in the U.S. and New Zealand, as well as a look at the stunning visual effects.
