Southland Tales "Cannes Cut" Coming To Blu-ray From Arrow Jan. 25th

A film maybe a little ahead of its time, Arrow Video will release Southland Tales on Blu-ray later this month. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Seann William Scott, the out-there film will come loaded with special features in a new, director-approved set. This will include the 15 minutes longer version that was shown at the Cannes Film Festival that garnered a standing ovation when shown, which led to lots of head-scratching when the film bombed on opening wide. Southland Tales is a weird film, not bad, but there is something about it that charms you while watching it. It might just be that you can tell Johnson is going to be a huge star, but who knows. Check out the list of the special features down below.

Southland Tales Blu-ray Details

"Los Angeles, 2008. As the city stands on the brink of social, economic, and environmental chaos, the fates of an eclectic set of characters – including an amnesia-stricken action star (Dwayne Johnson, the Fast & Furious series), an adult film star developing her own reality TV project (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Cruel Intentions) and a police officer whose identity has split in two (Seann William Scott, TV's Lethal Weapon) – intertwine with each other and with the whole of humanity. A darkly comic futuristic epic that speaks as presciently to our turbulent times as it did to the American socio-political climate in 2006, Southland Tales receives a fresh – and timely – lease of life with this new, director-approved restoration."
