Roger Waters The Wall - expanded two-disc Blu-ray special edition

Just announced, on the day following the worldwide screening in selected cinemas of Roger Waters The Wall for one night only, is the long-awaiting home release of the movie. It is being released as a digital download, as a DVD, a Blu-ray, and a 2-disc Blu-ray special edition, on November 16th, 2015. The physical editions are now available to order through selected outlets, and we have details below of what each edition contains.

There is also an additional release: an album of the Roger Waters The Wall soundtrack is set for release later this year (although no exact date is specified) via Sony Music. We suspect that this will be the concert itself, rather than the film soundtrack which of course is intercut with Roger's moving road trip.

For those who weren't able to see it last night, Roger Waters The Wall, written and directed by Roger Waters and Sean Evans combines an immersive and undeniably epic concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters' reckoning with the past, and an anti-war protest film, highlighting the human cost of conflict. Roger said: "I'm glad that we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale. It has had a deep effect on my life; and I'm not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones."

Roger Waters The Wall was shot during his sold out 2010-13 world tour. Seen by over 4 million fans at 219 shows over a period of three years, the show was the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history. The film, shot in 4k and mixed in Dolby Atmos, features concert footage from this incredible tour - a reminder of just how good the production was.

Roger Waters The Wall - scene from the film

Beyond the music, the film follows Roger Waters as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage and reflects on the impact of war with his own family. Woven throughout the film, Waters travels to France to the site where his grandfather is buried, and Italy to a memorial for his father – both lost to war. The journey offers a revealing, candid portrait of a man who is passionately and unapologetically anti-war.

The DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download releases feature bonus footage of Roger Waters visiting the grave of poet and soldier, Frank Thompson, who lost his life during the Second World War. The 2-disc Blu-Ray Special Edition features over 95 minutes of bonus footage, including the unforgettable moment in May 2011 when Roger Waters was joined on stage by David Gilmour and Nick Mason at London's O2 Arena in a performance of Comfortably Numb and Outside The Wall (Nick only appearing on the latter), as well as driving outtakes from the road movie, art cards, a poster and booklet.
