LINCOLN emancipates Blu-Ray on March 26

Daniel Day Lewis walked out of the Academy Awards with a well deserved grin on his face, as Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln biopic netted him another award and further proof that he may just be one of the greatest actors alive today.

I tried to watch the film on a flight back home last month, but any Oscar-worthy moments were drowned out by the shockwaves of epic snoring thanks to a fat yank sleeping away next to me on the plane. Fortunately, I can try attempt part deux when the Blu-Ray arrives.

Arriving on March 26 in North American markets, international releases of Lincoln will then make their way across the pond for a later April/May release. As usual, there’ll be a choice between a vanilla DVD version, a meatier Blu-Ray and a Meaty Deluxe 4 disc Blu-Ray set.  Here’s what’s on offer on those various menus, via Coming Soon:

If you haven’t seen Lincoln yet, well too bad then. Still, if you’re catching an international flight, then you can watch it on that tiny touch screen. If you’re still having doubts though, read Kervyn’s review which praises the film as a powerful piece of American drama bolstered by an ensemble cast.
