You can bring home the adaptation of a children's literary classic on DVD and Blu-ray this June. Inkheart will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 23. We have no cover art or special features details, but the DVD will be priced at $28.95 SRP and the Blu-ray will be priced at $35.99 SRP.
The BD release was said to be a "combo" release, which will have both the standard DVD disc and the Blu-ray disc along with a Digital Copy and "30 minutes of special features." It doesn't appear the standard disc will receive any bonus materials. The film stars Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany, Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren and Eliza Bennett.
When Mo Folchart reads a story, the characters leap off the page. Literally. And that's a problem. Mo must somehow use his special powers to send the interlopers back to their world...and save ours. If ever a task was easier read than done, this is it. Mo and his daughter Meggie, aided by friends real and fictional, plunge into a thrilling quest that pits them against diabolical villains, fantastic beasts and dangers at every turn.
Brendan Fraser leads a splendid cast (including Academy Award winners Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent) in an all-fun, all-family film of Cornelia Funke's bestseller. Follow Mo and Meggie into adventure more exciting than any ever read. Because it's adventure they're going to live!
