Director Bryan Singer’s Valkyrie will debut on DVD and Blu-ray Disc May 19 (prebook April 22) from MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
The film, based on a true story, stars Tom Cruise as Nazi Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, who in the midst of World War II led a conspiracy to kill Adolf Hitler. Rounding out the cast are Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Bill Nighy and Eddie Izzard.
Valkyrie will be available in three configurations: a bare-bones single-disc edition at $29.98; a $34.98 two-DVD set including two commentaries, two featurettes and a digital copy; and a Blu-ray version with all the special-edition DVD material plus five more featurettes.
The film grossed $82.9 million at the domestic box office last year.
