Its characters may not have been so lucky onscreen, but the Coen Brothers’ “No Country for Old Men” was a big winner at the Oscars earlier this week, scaring up a ton of hardware for its writers/directors and its villain. The DVD hits the streets on regular DVD and Blu-Ray edition March 11, 2008 from Miramax Films, and specs for the release, including cover art, can be found below.
Violence and mayhem erupt in the parched scrubland and panoramic skies of West Texas after Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) stumbles on a suitcase containing $2 million dollars at the site of drug deal gone bad. Fleeing with the money, he is stalked relentlessly by hired gun Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), an unstoppable sociopathic killer unafraid to leave a bloody trail in the wake of his cold-blooded search to recover the cash. As Moss scrambles to hang on to the money and his life, small-town sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) closes in on both men in a tautly plotted cat-and-mouse game that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats until the final credits roll.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray Disc include bonus features that take viewers behind the scenes of one of the most compelling thrillers of the year and shed new light on the complex characters and celebrated creators of No Country for Old Men.
