Hop on this DVD bus ride with The Beatles!

Across the Universe is making its way to DVD on February 5. The disc will be released in the standard format, as well as the Blu-Ray and UMD formats. The film stars Evan Rachel Wood, Jim Sturgess, Joe Anderson, Bono and Eddie Izzard.


An original musical film, Across the Universe is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and rock and roll. At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, the story moves from high schools and universities in Massachusetts, Princeton and Ohio to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Detroit riots, Vietnam and the dockyards of Liverpool. A combination of live action and animation, the film is paired with many songs by The Beatles that defined the time.

No special features have been released, as of yet.
