DVD/Blu-ray Info: M*A*S*H* coming on Blu-ray.

As a hyoooge Robert Altman fan, I am pleased as punch to report that M*A*S*H* will be released, on Blu-ray, on Sept 1st.

“The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is shaken up by the arrival of Captains Hawkeye Pierce and Duke Forrest, amazing surgeons but lousy soldiers, who deal with the daily carnage of the war by raising hell, as M*A*S*H ten-huts onto Blu-ray Disc September 1st from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Robert Altman (Gosford Park), the film’s screenplay was written by Oscar® winner Ring Lardner Jr (Woman of the Year) based on the novel by Richard Hooker.

The original feature film inspired the popular television series of the same name and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Garnering both Oscar®* and Golden Globe®** awards, the film stars acclaimed actors Donald Sutherland (The Italian Job), Tom Skerritt (“Picket Fences”), Elliott Gould (Ocean’s Thirteen) and Robert Duvall (The Apostle). Hawkeye (Sutherland) and Duke (Skerritt) are joined by renowned thoracic surgeon Trapper John McIntyre (Gould) and Major Frank Burns (Duvall) as M*A*S*H juxtaposes gory operating room procedures with anti-establishment humor, all set against the backdrop of the Korean War.”
