Fox Home Entertainment will release the family film ‘City of Ember’ on DVD January 20, 2009. Directed by Gil Kenan, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Harry Treadaway, Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Toby Jones.
A heart-thumping, edge-of-your-seat adventure comes to light in this exhilarating family film based on the best-selling novel by Jeanne Duprau. For centuries, the residents of the underground City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights and quiet contentment. But when the City’s massive power generator begins to fail, the street lamps start to fade — along with the hopes and dreams of the townspeople. Now it’s up to two courageous teenagers to follow a trail of clues left by the ancient Builders and find a way out of Ember before their world is plunged into darkness forever!
The City of Ember DVD will be presented on a flipper disc in both full screen (1.33:1) and wide screen features (2.35:1 ratio) with English 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish and French Dolby Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles.
