The comedy epic Monty Python and the Holy Grail is finally making Blu-ray debut. The film’s been “digitally remastered for high-definition,” so I imagine that means they did more than just upscale the previous DVD release. The Blu-ray release will also include several exclusive features, such as “Second Screen Experience” compatibility, along with extended scenes, outtakes, lost animations and more. Finally, the disc features UltraViolet compatibility, granting its owner a digital license for the product. The owner can then instantly stream, or download a digital copy of the film. Monty Python and the Holy Grail will be available March 6th and retails for $19.99, but you can pre-order it via Amazon for just $12.99.
True fanboys & girls should also pick up The Holy Book of Days interactive iPad app, also launching March 6th. The app serves as a reference guide & compendium for the film, taking you through the 28 days it took to film the original movie with outtakes, new animations, audio clips, photos and scripts. It also allows you to utilize “The Second Screen Experience” feature included with the Blu-ray, allowing you to control of the film from you iPad. The only drawback is that the app will cost an additional $4.99, but for a limited time, Sony will be offering a $5 mail-in rebate to those who purchase both the Blu-ray and app.
