Director Kathryn Bigelow’s Academy Award-winning war film The Hurt Locker will arrive on digital 4K Ultra HD and on demand Feb. 4 from Lionsgate.
The film won six Oscars, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.
It has been remixed in Dolby Atmos by Academy Award-winner Paul N.J. Ottosson (part of the team responsible for The Hurt Locker’s Best Sound Editing/Best Sound Mixing wins) for the home entertainment release.
The Hurt Locker stars Academy Award-nominee Jeremy Renner (2009, Best Actor, The Hurt Locker; 2010, Best Supporting Actor, The Town), Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty and Evangeline Lilly, with Ralph Fiennes, David Morse and Guy Pearce.
The film follows Staff Sergeant William James, head of an elite squad of soldiers tasked with disarming bombs in the heat of combat. To do this nerve-shredding job, it’s not enough to be the best: you have to thrive in a zone where the margin of error is zero and think as diabolically as a bomb-maker.
