Home Release For The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is in June

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent flew a bit under the radar last month when it was released, which is a real shame because it's one of the best movies of the year so far. It was made on a modest $30 million budget; it just couldn't find a place in a packed April and only made just under $24 million worldwide. However, this movie has all the markings of a cult classic, so the announcement that the home release will be in June. According to a press release put out by Lionsgate, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will be available on Digital on June 7th and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On-Demand on June 21st.
