The combo pack will include the director’s cut of Darren Aronofsky’s adaptation of Hubert Selby Jr.’s novel about four people pursuing their visions of happiness through drugs, plummeting with their dreams into a nightmarish, gut-wrenching freefall.
The cast includes Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly and Marlon Wayans.
The 4K disc includes Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos sound with a transfer supervised by cinematographer Matthew Libatique, plus four new 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.”
The standard Blu-ray included in the combo pack includes legacy extras such as “The Making of Requiem for a Dream” featurette, the “Memories, Dreams, & Addictions: Ellen Burstyn Interviews Hubert Selby Jr.” featurette, deleted scenes with optional commentary by Aronofsky, and a marketing gallery
Both the 4K and regular Blu-ray discs include separate audio commentaries by Aronofsky and Libatique.
