‘The Black Phone’ To Dial Up Digital, Blu-Ray, DVD Releases

by Thomas Tuna

It’s hard to ignore a ringing phone.

The Black Phone–from Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures–recently passed the $100-million mark at the global box office, and will come home on digital, Blu-ray and DVD starting later this week, according to a report on Collider.

The film will be available with a slew of extra features on digital starting Aug. 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD Aug. 16.

The extras include Ethan Hawke’s Evil Turn (see how the actor transformed into The Grabber), Answering the Call (a behind-the-scenes look at key elements of the film’s production), Devil in the Design (a look at the intricacies of production design), some deleted scenes and feature commentary from director Scott Derrickson.

The Black Phone–helmed by Derrickson and written  by C. Robert Cargill–is based on a 2004 short story by Joe Hill and stars Ethan Hawke, Mason Thames, Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies, James Ransone and E. Roger Mitchell.

In the film, young Finney Shaw (Thames) is abducted  by The Grabber (Hawke) and trapped in a soundproof basement. But, when a disconnected black phone on the wall starts to ring, the boy discovers he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And those voices “are dead-set on making sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.”
