Sony has set the Moneyball DVD and Blu-ray release date for January 10, 2012. The movie, starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright, was released back in September and follows the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.
Moneyball was directed by Bennett Miller and has made $71 million worldwide so far (it will be rolling out in the UK and other territories between now and February). The movie has an impressive 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, so an awards campaign and Best Actor push for Pitt may be on the horizon.
Blu-ray.com has the special features:
