‘Nightmare Alley’ Transactional Home Release Set for March

Disney-owned Searchlight Pictures’ Nightmare Alley will be available for digital purchase starting March 8, and on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray March 22.

From director Guillermo del Toro, Nightmare Alley is a psychological thriller about a down-on-his-luck grifter in the 1940s named Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper), who endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a traveling carnival. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet.

Del Toro co-wrote the screenplay with Kim Morgan, based on the 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham.

The film earned $10.9 million at the domestic box office. It earned four Oscar nominations for the upcoming 94th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.

The home video release includes three bonus featurettes: “Del Toro’s Neo Noir,” in which the filmmakers and cast decipher the dark, complicated world of the film; “Beneath the Tarp,” a look at the production design; and “What Exists in the Fringe,” about the film’s costumes.

Nightmare Alley became available for streaming on Hulu and HBO Max Feb. 1.
