DICK TRACY Blu-Ray Release Set

Last week, when we showed you some pictures of the various makeup designs that Al Pacino developed for his character Big Boy Caprice for the movie Dick Tracy, I mentioned that I hoped we would be able to experience the film on blu-ray soon. Well, if you shared that sentiment with me I have good news. A release date for the film’s high-def home video release has been set – December 11.

Now the Amazon listingdoesn’t mention any extras for the disc yet, but I would think that there should be a few things that could be put on there at least.

While the script might be a bit bare bones, the production design of the film is just flat out stunning. By replicating the look of a Sunday color comic strip (all the reds are the same red, all blues the same blue, etc…) star and director Warren Beatty created a film that was eye-catching and stylistically paved the way for films like Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City. And he was able to do it in the days before CGI.
