Invictus unveiled on Blu-ray Disc

Now available to pre-order on Blu-ray Disc is Oscar-nominated Invictus, the emotive story of how Nelson Mandela used the Rugby World Cup to bridge racial conflict in South Africa.  The film, produced by Clint Eastwood, sees Mandela (Morgan Freeman) work together with African rugby captain François Pienaar (Matt Damon) to motivate their team to victory.  Considered a turning point for race relations in South Africa, this historic period is depicted on film with Eastwood’s usual classic style.

Along with the HD version of the film, the Blu-ray Disc comes with engaging special features including ‘Vision, Courage and Honour’, an insightful look behind-the-scenes with cast interviews, and more importantly, interviews with the real men who inspired the making of the film.  Two further featurettes, ‘Mandela meets Morgan’ and ‘Matt Damon plays Rugby’, document challenges faced during filming and a light-hearted game of rugby between Damon and his on-screen team mates against their real-life counterparts.

Invictus will be available to buy from mid-June. For more information, has an early review.
