‘The Messenger’ Comes Home on DVD and Blu-ray on May 18th

You can bring home Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster's powerful war movie home on DVD and Blu-ray this May. The Messenger will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on May 18. We don't have any cover art images as of yet, but the standard DVD will be priced at $29.98 SRP while the BD will cost $34.98 SRP and will also include a standard-definition copy of the film as well. The film stars Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster and Samantha Morton.

In his most powerful performance to date, Ben Foster stars as Will Montgomery, a U.S. Army officer who has just returned home from a tour in Iraq and is assigned to the Army's Casualty Notification service. Partnered with fellow officer Tony Stone (Woody Harrelson) to bear the bad news to the loved ones of fallen soldiers, Will faces the challenge of completing his mission while seeking to find comfort and healing back on the home front. When he finds himself drawn to Olivia (Samantha Morton), to whom he has just delivered the news of her husband's death, Will's emotional detachment begins to dissolve and the film reveals itself as a surprising, humorous, moving and very human portrait of grief, friendship and survival.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: ‘The Messenger’ Cast Interviews!

Ever since the country went to war in Iraq over six years ago, movies about the war have not been received well by audiences. This is in direct contrast to the 1940s when films about World War II, the current war of the time, were extremely popular. However, with the new administration in office the winds of change might be in the air as The Hurt Locker, a film about the current war, was released earlier this year to excellent reviews. Now, another film about the war is getting attention but it's not the kind of war movie that you might think. The Messenger, opening in theaters on November 13th, is a film about the repercussions of war and doesn't take place on the battlefield but instead on the home front. We recently had a chance to speak with the stars of the film, Ben Foster, Woody Harrelson and Samantha Morton, who along with the films director Oren Moverman discussed the movie, the war, meeting the current President and their distain for the former administration. To watch our exclusive interviews click on the video clips below.

Featuring tour-de-force performances from Foster, Harrelson and Morton, and an impressive directorial debut by Moverman, The Messenger brings us into the inner lives of these outwardly steely heroes to reveal their fragility with compassion and dignity. Also starring Jena Malone and Steve Buscemi and directed by Oren Moverman, The Messenger opens in theaters on November 13th.
