Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release 1999’s The Green Mile on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Feb. 22.
Written and directed by Frank Darabont, and based on the 1996 Stephen King novel of the same name, the film stars Tom Hanks as a prison guard whose sense of humanity is re-awakened when he meets a death-row inmate (Michael Clarke Duncan) whose caring demeanor belies his gruesome murder conviction, and who seems to have a supernatural gift to heal living things.
The cast also includes David Morse, Bonnie Hunt, James Cromwell, Michael Jeter, Graeme Greene, Doug Hutchison, Sam Rockwell, Barry Pepper, Jeffrey DeMunn, Patricia Clarkson and Harry Dean Stanton.
The film was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Duncan, Best Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay.
The 4K combo pack of The Green Mile will include a 4K disc with the film with HDR, and a regular Blu-ray of the film with bonus features. Extras include a commentary by Darabont; additional scenes; a “Walking the Mile: The Making of The Green Mile” documentary; a “Miracle and Mystery: Creating The Green Mile” featurette gallery; Hanks makeup tests; Duncan’s screen test; and the film’s trailers, including the teaser trailer “A Case Study.”
