Flight, starring Denzel Washington, makes its Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand debut on February 5, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The Robert Zemeckis directed movie has earned Washington Golden Globe, SAG and Critics’ Choice award nominations. Written by John Gatins, the film tells the story of Whip Whitaker, a commercial airline pilot who miraculously lands a plummeting airplane during a sequence described as “the hairiest, scariest, most realistic, and thrilling plane crash in movie history” but despite his heroics, Whip comes under investigation and begins what may be an even more harrowing personal descent.
Flight will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack with UltraViolet and special features that take audiences behind-the-scenes to learn about the film’s journey to the screen, how the filmmakers created the terrifying plane crash, and more. In addition, the two-disc set includes highlights from a Q&A panel. The film will also be available as a single-disc DVD and digital download all set for release on February 5.
