DVD Info: Release date (and cover art) announced for No Country for Old Men.

Buena Vista Home Entertainment has set a release date for the DVD of the Coen Brothers No Country for Old Men.

The DVD will hit stores on March 11th and will have a SRP of $26.99
At this time, the only features announced are three featurettes:

The Making of No Country for Old Men
Diary of a Country Sheriff

The film is based on the novel, of the same name, by Pulitzer Prize winning-author Cormic McCarthy.

The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (BROLIN) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law – in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (JONES) – can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers – in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (BARDEM) – the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible, and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
