Judy DVD, Blu-ray and digital release UK

Renée Zellweger hasn’t had too many big film releases in recent years with the exception of Bridget Jones’s Baby in 2016. Her most recent role is in the Netflix mini-series thriller What/If where she plays venture capitalist Anne Montgomery, which was her first TV role in eleven years. However, with rave reviews for her performance in Judy we might see her starring in more movies again going forward.

Renée Zellweger takes the reigns at the end of the rainbow with the Judy DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date (UK details below) following its big screen run in October. It’s been a quiet year for biographical films, and with such a big name it’s bound to be high up on the pre-order chart on iTunes and Amazon Prime Video to buy or rent.

The story is very specific in terms of timelines, so it doesn’t cover huge swathes of Judy Garlands life. Instead, it takes place in London in 1968 as the American actress and singer comes to the swinging capital for a five-week winter run of sold-out concerts at the Talk of the Town. It’s based on the West End and Broadway play End of the Rainbow by Peter Quilter, which focuses on Garland in the months leading up to her death at the age of 47.

Zellweger is joined by a couple of other big names with Rufus Sewell (Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) as Sidney Luft, Judy’s third husband, and Michael Gambon (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) as Russian-British theatre magnate Bernard Delfont. The cast also includes Finn Wittrock, Jessie Buckley, Bella Ramsey, Royce Pierreson, Arthur McBain, John Dagleish and Gemma-Leah Devereux.

DVD, iTunes, Xbox ONE, PS4, Amazon and digital rental release date UK

The Judy DVD and Blu-ray release date is expected mid January 2020 in the UK, following on from its cinema release in October 2019. It’s doubtful that it’ll be available on 4K Ultra HD, but then you probably don’t need anything more in terms of definition than the high-def of Blu-ray for a biographical drama.

The iTunes and Amazon Video digital release will be out a couple of weeks earlier, so you’re probably looking at the first week of the year. However, the rental release will be on the same date as the DVD and Blu-ray, so around mid January 2020 with a little leeway either side.

The film has a runtime of 1 hour 58 minutes, so it’s a solid mid-length film with some pretty hefty subject matter to cover along the way. This will give it a digital file size in the region of 4.5Gb at 1080p high definition and 1.9Gb on standard definition. If you’re opting for the digital version of the film make sure you check your PC, Mac, PS4 or Xbox ONE hard drive for storage space before downloading it.

UK cinema release date

Judy has a UK release date confirmed for Friday the 4th October on the big screen, but it’s out in the USA on the 27th September 2019. It’s big box office competition will come from Joaquin Phoenix in Joker, which is out on the same weekend. The audiences for each are very different, so it should do well in the cinema, but a Joker is undoubtedly going to take the #1 spot.

Judy age rating

The British Board of Film Classification has given Judy an age rating of 12A in the the UK, and with the nature of the content of the release it’s easy to see why it wasn’t given a PG, despite The Wizard Of Oz links. The rating info includes scenes of drug misuse and infrequent strong language if you’re looking for a parents guide for the film.

We’ll add in more details about the film as they become available, including and special features that get added to the DVD, Blu-Ray and digital release. However, the information above should give you a good idea of what to expect.
