Personally one of my favorite films of 2011, the Best Picture nominated War Horse has enjoyed a great amount of time in the sun. While it’s still somewhat galloping in theaters, some may have missed Steven Spielberg’s latest directorial effort. Now, Touchstone Pictures has revealed just when you’ll be able to pick up the film, along with the cover art and special features of the release.
War Horse will hit shelves on April 3rd, in an outstanding four disc combo pack, which features the Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray Special Features, DVD, and Digital Copy of the film. The two-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo will be release as well, along with single DVD and digital download copies of the film as well.
Here is a peek at the cover art for both Blu-Ray versions, as well as the full press release detailing the prices, and special features of all the combo packs:
