HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "One of the most memorable movie-going experiences of the year" (Richard Roeper, "Richard Roeper & The Movies"), the "keenly felt, knuckle-biting drama" (Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly) FLIGHT makes its Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand debut on February 5, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Hailed by critics and audiences alike, FLIGHT is directed by renowned filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) and stars the incomparable Denzel Washington in a performance that "will be talked about for years" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) and has earned him Golden Globe®, SAG and Critics' Choice award nominations. Written by John Gatins, the film tells the story of Whip Whitaker, a commercial airline pilot who miraculously lands a plummeting airplane during a breathtaking sequence described as "the hairiest, scariest, most realistic, and thrilling plane crash in movie history" (Richard Corliss, Time). But despite his heroics, Whip comes under investigation and begins what may be an even more harrowing personal descent. FLIGHT also boasts an exceptional supporting cast including John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo and Brian Geraghty.
FLIGHT will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack with UltraViolet™ and compelling special features that take audiences behind-the-scenes to learn about the film's journey to the screen, how the filmmakers created the terrifying plane crash, and more. In addition, the two-disc set includes highlights from a Q&A panel. The film will also be available as a single-disc DVD.
