PROMISED LAND Set for DVD, Blu-Ray Release, 4/23


From Academy Award-nominated director Gus Van Sant (Milk, Good Will Hunting) comes Promised Land, the compelling contemporary drama based on an original screenplay by John Krasinski ("The Office") and Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity, Adjustment Bureau) from a story by David Eggers (Away We Go). Damon stars as corporate salesman Steve Butler whose journey from farm boy to big-time player takes an unexpected detour when he lands in the rural town of McKinley with partner Sue Thomason, played by Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, Moonrise Kingdom), to offer much-needed relief to the economically hard-hit residents in exchange for drilling rights to their properties. The heartwarming story of Focus Features' Promised Land is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on April 23, 2013 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

What seems like an easy job for the duo quickly becomes complicated by a respected schoolteacher (HAl Holbrook), a slick environmental activist (Krasinski), and Butler's interest in a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). As they grapple with a surprising array of both open hearts and closed doors, the outsiders soon discover the strength of an American small town at a crossroads.
