Now it’s official. Anchor
Bay Entertainment
and The Weinstein Company will release Lee Daniels’s The Butler on a Blu-ray and standard combo DVD set, On Demand
cable and pay-per-view, starting on January

The film will also be available early in Digital HD on December 31.

Butler has earned some $159 million worldwide, and I don’t
need to tell you that the film was at the center of lots of controversy, with both its defenders and detractors.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s your chance to decide for yourself on what side of the fence you sit.

The blu-ray and standard DVDs, of course, will include
several extras, including 2 featurettes – Lee
The Butler: An American
and The Original Freedom
 – as well as Gladys Knight and Lenny Kravitz’sYou” and “I Ain’t Nothin’
More” music videos, some deleted
scenes and a gag reel.
