You can visit a lost underground city when it rises up to DVD this January. City of Ember will be released on DVD on January 20. It seems this will be a barebones release with no special features, but the disc will come with both the widescreen and fullscreen versions on one disc, priced at $29.98 SRP. The film stars Bill Murray, Tim Robbins and Saoirse Ronan.
A heart-thumping, edge-of-your-seat adventure comes to light in this exhilarating family film based on the best-selling novel by Jeanne Duprau. For centuries, the residents of the underground City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights and quiet contentment. But when the City's massive power generator begins to fail, the street lamps start to fade - along with the hopes and dreams of the townspeople. Now it's up to two courageous teenagers to follow a trail of clues left by the ancient Builders and find a way out of Ember before their world is plunged into darkness forever!
