Lionsgate will release the drama Trial by Fire through digital retailers July 30, and on DVD Aug. 13.
Directed by Edward Zwick, the film is based on the true story of Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O’ Connell), a poor, uneducated heavy metal devotee with a violent streak, who was convicted of arson-related triple homicide and put on death row in Texas. The film depicts the unlikely bond that formed between Willingham and Elizabeth Gilbert (Laura Dern), a Houston mother of two, who battled against the state for 12 years to try to save Willingham by exposing suppressed evidence and illogical conclusions.
The DVD will include a photo gallery.
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.
