You can bring home one of Paul Thomas Anderson's most acclaimed films on Blu-ray early next year. Magnolia will be released on Blu-ray on Januray 19, 2010. The new BD disc will be priced at $28.99 SRP and while we don't have the cover art image as of yet, we'll update this story as soon as we get the new images. The film stars Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John C. Reilly and William H. Macy.
Anderson's follow up to Boogie Nights was called "one of the best movies of the year" by Rolling Stone's Peter Travers and was nominated for three Academy Awards-- Best Supporting Actor (Tom Cruise in an amazing performance as a sleazy infomercial host); Best Original Song (Save Me by Aimee Mann) and an Original Screenplay nomination for Anderson. The film takes place in a single day in Los Angeles, focusing on a number of interconnected people whose lives are forever changed as they search for love and meaning in a chaotic world. The film chronicles such diverse occurrences as a suicide turned homicide by a quirk of timing; a motivational speaker motivated by rage; and a quiz kid rendered stupid by a lightning strike. Besides Cruise, look for more great acting from Philip Seymour Hoffman, William H. Macy, Jason Robards, Philip Baker Hall and Julianne Moore.
