'American Hustle' Hits Disc18 Mar, 2014 By: Chris Tribbey
On March 18, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s American Hustle arrived on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, and the studio announced the film had passed the $250 million mark at the worldwide box office.
The studio will add to that total soon, with the film debuted in China in April.
“David O. Russell has not only made one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2013; he has also proved that he is a formidable box office draw,” said Jeff Blake, chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures. “The performance of American Hustle is far beyond all of our wildest dreams. As we launch the home entertainment release today, it’s gratifying to look back and note the incredible connection this film made with moviegoers everywhere.”
Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, the film stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.
Bonus materials on the DVD and Blu-ray combo pack include “The Making of American Hustle,” a behind-the-scenes featurette with filmmakers and cast, and more than 20 minutes of deleted and extended scenes.
