Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Skydance Productions will be releasing the sci-fi thriller LIFE on digital June 2 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD June 20.

LIFE stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Nocturnal Animals), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool). All three actors play members of a team of scientists who discover a “rapidly evolving life form” that poses a threat to Earth. The film was released in the United States on March 24, 2017.

The Blu-ray, DVD, and digital releases come with bonus content. You’ll be able to enjoy deleted scenes, never seen before “Astronaut Diaries,” and three behind-the-scenes featurettes.

In “Claustrophobic Terror: Creating a Thriller in Space,” director Daniel Espinosa and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick take fans through their dynamic approach to creating the tense cinematic thriller. Fans dive deep into the scientific reasoning behind the creation of Calvin and learn why it inspires wonder and fear in “Creating Life: The Art and Reality of Calvin.” In “Life: In Zero G,” the cast and crew dive into the challenges of filming an entire film mimicking zero gravity. Finally, in “Astronaut Diaries,” Rory Adams, Miranda North and Hugh Derry reveal their inner most feelings about their mission and life, in video diaries pulled directly from the station.

The film is described as an “intense sci-fi thriller.” Directed by Daniel Espinosa and written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick, it was produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn; with Don Granger and Vicki Dee Rock serving as executive producers.
