Merchandising: Best Buy’s ‘Requiem for a Dream’ 4K Steelbook Becomes Available

The few major new titles that arrived on Blu-ray and DVD Jan. 18 didn’t draw interest from the major retailers in terms of exclusive editions.

The biggest exclusive during the week was for a catalog title, a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Steelbook combo pack of Lionsgate’s Requiem for a Dream available at Best Buy.

The psychological drama from director Darren Aronofsky was originally released in 2000 and features cinematography by two-time Academy Award nominee Matthew Libatique and music by Golden Globe nominee Clint Mansell.

With a screenplay by Aronofsky and Hubert Selby Jr., based on Selby’s nove, Requiem for a Dream stars Oscar winners Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly and Ellen Burstyn, along with Marlon Wayans, in a hypnotic film about four people pursuing their visions of happiness. Even as everything begins to fall apart, they refuse to let go, plummeting with their dreams into a nightmarish, gut-wrenching freefall.

The Steelbook features new artwork from Vance Kelly and was offered on street date for $19.99.

Previously released extras include the featurettes “On Set: 1999,” “Transcendent Moments: The Score of Requiem for a Dream,” “Ellen Burstyn on Requiem for a Dream” and “Through Their Eyes: Revisiting Requiem for a Dream.”
