The film will be offered in a single disc and a double disc edition, and they will both feature digital copies for use on your home and personal computers. Here is the official press release:
On the streets of Los Angeles, every cop wants justice. But how they get it is what sets them apart. Fox Home Entertainment presents a gripping and pulse-pounding look at police corruption where no one can be trusted when Street Kings debuts on DVD and Blu-Ray August 19. Starring Keanu Reeves (The Matrix Trilogy, Speed) and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, Vantage Point), Street Kings follows veteran LAPD Detective Tom Ludlow (Reeves), a disillusioned cop who sets out on a quest to solve the murder of his former partner. With the help of his boss and mentor Captain Jack Wander (Whitaker), Ludlow begins a crusade to serve his own form of justice, breaking the rules of conduct on a regular basis and avoiding the watchful eye of Internal Affairs Captain James Biggs (Hugh Laurie; House M.D.). In the end Ludlow will be forced to question the loyalties of everyone involved and the truth will finally come to pass.
Directed by David Ayer (Harsh Times) from a story by James Ellroy ("L.A. Confidential", The Black Dahlia), Street Kings features an array of intense supporting performances from Chris Evans (Fantastic Four), Common (American Gangster), The Game (Waist Deep), and Cedric The Entertainer (Code Name: The Cleaner). Available on single-disc, two-disc and Blu-Ray DVD, special features include commentary by Ayer, deleted and alternate scenes, ten vignettes and more. The Street Kings two-disc DVD will be available for a suggested retail price of $34.98 U.S. / $45.98 Canada and on BD for $39.98 U.S. / $49.98 Canada, both featuring digital copy.
