The biopic King Richard, starring Will Smith, will arrive for premium digital purchase and rental Jan. 4, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 8 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
Based on the true story, the film follows the uplifting journey of a family whose unwavering resolve and unconditional belief ultimately delivers two of the world’s greatest sports legends. Armed with a clear vision and a 78-page plan, Richard Williams (Smith) is determined to write his daughters, Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Serena (Demi Singleton), into history. Training in Compton, Calif., on abandoned tennis courts — rain or shine — the girls are shaped by their father’s unyielding commitment and their mother’s (Aunjanue Ellis) balanced perspective and keen intuition, defying the seemingly insurmountable odds and prevailing expectations laid before them.
The DVD, Blu-ray and 4K combo pack and Blu-ray include a “Following the Plan — The Making of King Richard” featurette. The Blu-ray and 4K versions also include deleted scenes and the featurettes “Becoming Richard” and “Champions on Screen.”
