CULVER CITY, CALIF.; Dec. 9, 2013 - He held the gun...but she called the shots in the groundbreaking two-night, mini-series BONNIE & CLYDE
, arriving on Blu-ray (Includes Digital HD UltraViolet) and DVD Jan. 28 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Fresh on the heels of its simulcast premiere on History, Lifetime and A&E, the passion-filled mini-series, executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, follows one of the nation's most notorious couples, Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch) and Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger), who lusted after fortune, killed for fame, and embarked on an adrenaline-filled crime spree across America.
Fans, historians and skeptics who are restless to uncover more about this legendary couple can dive into a host of bonus materials available on the two-disc Blu-ray and DVD sets. Exclusive to the BONNIE & CLYDE
Blu-ray set is a never-before-seen featurette "A Legendary Story Revisited," giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at how the tale was refreshed to take on a modern twist.

Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre
) & Clyde Barrow's (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild
) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fueled by their passion for each other and Bonnie's obsession with fame, the couple committed increasingly dangerous robberies, leaving a trail of blood - and headlines - behind them. Aided by Clyde's sixth sense, they stayed one step ahead of the law until their final, fateful showdown. Also starring Academy Award(R) winners Holly Hunter (Best Actress, 1993, The Piano
) and William Hurt (Best Actor, 1985, Kiss of the Spider Woman
), BONNIE AND CLYDE
