BVHE bring you Chicago this August

Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Chicago for August 4th 2003. Arriving two weeks before the Region 1 DVD release we can expect the following features on the UK disc...

  • 28 minute Behind the Scenes featurette
  • Deleted scene
  • Theatrical trailer
There is no word on the AV side of things at this time though it seems reasonably safe to assume we'll be treated to an Anamorphic Widescreen transfer with DD5.1 audio at the very least. Once we have confirmation on these details and of course the all important pack shot we shall of course update the site. For now here is the promotional text from the press release...

A flash of leg, the taste of temptation, the smell of corruption and things that go bump in the night. Chicago, the sizzling smash hit film that took the world by storm, will be available to own and rent on DVD and video from 4 August 2003, a full two weeks ahead of Region 1.

The all-singing, all-dancing spectacle of glamour, glitz and intrigue that was a massive hit on the silver screen, stars some of Hollywood’s hottest talent including Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta Jones, Richard Gere, Queen Latifah, Lucy Liu and John C. Reilly.

Hitting a high note at awards ceremonies including the Oscars, the BAFTAs and the Golden Globes, Chicago won six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress and Best Costume Design and was nominated for a further seven Oscars making it the third most Oscar nominated film of all time.

Chicago is a DVD and video performance not to be missed. Cleverly adapted from the hugely popular Broadway show, Chicago is the musical that has captured imaginations everywhere and has was it takes to strike the right chord with everyone.

A revealing look behind the glamorous scenes as part of the extras makes the Chicago DVD the only way to get under the sequinned skin of the Hollywood blockbuster.

Story Synopsis

Everyone loves a legend, but in Chicago, there’s only room for one. Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta Jones) burns in the spotlight as a night-club sensation. When she shoots her philandering husband, she lands on Chicago’s famed murderous row, retains Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) and is the centre of the town’s most notorious murder case, only increasing her celebrity.

Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger) seduced by the city’s promise of style and adventure, dreams of singing and dancing her way to stardom. When Roxie’s abusive lover tries to walk out on her, she too ends up in prison. Billy recognises a made-for-tabloids story. Infamy is Roxie’s ticket to stardom. Billy turns her crime of passion into celebrity headlines, and in his town, where murder is a form of entertainment, she becomes a bone fide star – much to Velma’s chagrin. As Roxie fashions herself as America’s sweetheart, Velma has more than a few surprises in store and the two women stop at nothing to outdo each other in their obsessive pursuit of fame and celebrity.
