Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Cry Macho for premium digital ownership Nov. 5, followed by a release on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Dec. 7.
Cry Macho is directed by and also stars Clint Eastwood as an aging former rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder in 1979 who takes a job from an ex-boss (Dwight Yoakam) to bring the man’s young son (Eduardo Minett) home from Mexico. Forced to take the backroads on their way to Texas, the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption.
The cast also includes Natalia Traven, Fernanda Urrejola and Horacio Garcia Rojas. The screenplay was written by Nick Schenk and N. Richard Nash, based on the novel by Nash.
It earned $10.2 million at the domestic box office during a theatrical run in which it was also available concurrently on the HBO Max streaming service for 31 days.
The disc editions include the featurette “Back in the Saddle: The Making of Cry Macho.” The Blu-ray editions also include the featurette “Macho and the Mustangs.”
The year 2021 marks the 50th year of Eastwood’s partnership with Warner Bros., starting with Dirty Harry.
