Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the 1989 Civil War drama Glory on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K digital with HDR July 30 to mark the film’s 30th Anniversary.
Directed by Edward Zwick, the film tells the story of the first all-black volunteer company formed by the Union during the U.S. Civil War. The cast includes Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman.
The film was nominated for five Academy Awards and won three, including Best Supporting Actor for Denzel Washington, Best Cinematography and Best Sound.
The re-release comes from a 4K resolution scan from the original camera negative, with a 4K HDR master approved by director Edward Zwick, plus a new Dolby Atmos audio mix, as well as the original theatrical audio mix.
Extras include director’s commentary, deleted scenes with commentary, a virtual interactive Civil War battlefield map, the documentary “The True Story Continues,” and the featurettes “The Voices of Glory” and “The Making of Glory.” The 4K disc will include a visual feature-length commentary and the film’s theatrical trailer.
In addition, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures will present Glory as part of the year-long TCM Big Screen Classics series. The film will play in more than 600 movie theaters nationwide July 21 and 24. Tickets are available at FathomEvents.com.
