Anchor Bay has announced that they are releasing 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s The Newton Boys onto Blu-ray this May. The film was directed by Richard Linklater and starred Matthew McConaughey, Skeet Ulrich, Ethan Hawke, Gail Cronauer, Vincent D’Onofrio, Julianna Margulies, and Dwight Yoakam. The Newton Boys will be available online and in stores beginning May 28th.
The Newton brothers (McConaughey, Ulrich, Hawke and D’Onofrio) belong to a poor farmer family in the 1920’s. The oldest of them, Willis, one day realizes that there’s no future in the fields and suggests he and his brothers become bank robbers. Soon the family agrees, not just becoming small-time crooks but famous robbers who, five years later, execute the greatest train robbery in American history.
The Newton Boys was released in March of 1998 and grossed over $10 million in worldwide box office.
Anchor Bay has not released any information concerning technical specifications and special features yet.
