Sony Pictures Home Entertainment reportedly is expanding the electronic sellthrough window for upcoming release Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt.
The studio is releasing the critically acclaimed baseball movie featuring Pitt as Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane for digital sellthrough Dec. 22 — nearly three weeks before the title’s release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Moneyball, which includes UltraViolet functionality, retails for $35.99 on Blu-ray and $30.99 on DVD.
Previous early EST titles included Bad Teacher and 30 Minutes or Less — both of which were available for purchase electronically 14 days before their retail street dates.
