Warner Home Video is bringing the hit family drama The Blind Side to Blu-ray and DVD March 23 (order date Feb. 16).
The film, directed by John Lee Hancock (The Rookie), has earned critical and audience acclaim for its portrayal of the true story of Michael Oher, a 2009 draft pick of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens who grew up in foster homes before being adopted by the Tuohy family. Star Sandra Bullock has earned praise for her performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy, recently taking home a Golden Globe for her efforts.
As of Jan. 19, the film has earned nearly $228 million at the U.S. box office, enough to be proclaimed not only the highest-grossing sports movie of all time, but also the top movie ever with a solo female headliner.
Warner will release the film as a Blu-ray combo pack (BD + DVD + digital copy) at $35.99 with more than an hour of exclusive extras, as well as a standalone DVD version at $28.98.
