The delightful The Phantom Of The Open is getting a physical media release – on DVD and Blu-ray – this coming summer: more details here.
After debuting to strong reviews at last year’s London Film Festival, The Phantom Of The Open finally made it into UK cinemas last month. The film didn’t, I’d suggest, do the business it deserved, but it’s nonetheless ripe for rediscovery as it heads to its home formats release. And now we know when the DVD and Blu-ray will be coming along.
The movie, if you’re new to it, tells the real-life story of Maurice Flitcroft, a man who in the 1970s decided to have a go at the British Open golf championship, in spite of never having played golf in his life. Delightfully played by Mark Rylance with excellent support from Sally Hawkins, the movie was penned by Simon Farnaby and directed by Craig Roberts.
The film has been earmarked – crikey, it’s taken us a fair few words to get to this bit – for its DVD and Blu-ray release on July 25th 2022. We don’t have details of extra features as of yet, but as we hear more, we’ll let you know.
In the meantime, you can find more information and order a copy here.
