Greyhound, the new WWII film starring Tom Hanks and directed by Aaron Schneider, is one of the most anticipated movies of 2020. Since its release in June 2020, moviegoers have been eagerly trying to get their hands on a DVD copy of the film. But will Greyhound ever be released on DVD
The answer is likely “yes”—but it could be some time before we see it. The theatrical release of Greyhound was severely limited due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it has since been made available through Apple TV+. Unless more people get a chance to watch it theatrically, the film won’t make much money—which could mean studios won’t be willing to invest in a DVD release.
That being said, DVD releases of movies are something of a tradition, and studios often wait until a movie has made a significant impact before giving it a DVD release. It would be surprising if Greyhound was not released on DVD in the future, although there is no way to know for certain when this may be.
For those who can’t wait for the DVD release, there are other options. Greyhound is currently available for rent or purchase on digital streaming platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube. These digital releases offer high-quality viewing experiences and eliminate the need to wait for a physical DVD release.
At the same time, DVD releases can be considered collectors’ items, and for many fans, the experience of owning a physical copy of the movie is an important part of the viewing experience. Special features such as deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes can also be found on DVDs, offering a complete look at the production of the movie.
Whether or not Greyhound will be released on DVD is unclear, but it is likely that at some point, the film will receive a physical release. Until then, fans can enjoy the film on digital streaming platforms and wait for the day when Greyhound can be added to their DVD collections.
