CHUCK comes to Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD August 15th

A fascinating drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner, the riveting underdog story CHUCK arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD August 15, 2017 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The film will also be available for sale or rental from cable, satellite and telco providers through IFC Films.

Liev Schreiber gives an extraordinary and committed performance as Chuck Wepner, the man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali and became the real-life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It’s the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame—but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up?

CHUCK also stars Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men,” “The Handmaid’s Tale”), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Naomi Watts (The Ring, “Twin Peaks”), and Jim Gaffigan (“The Jim Gaffigan Show”).

The CHUCK Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and English, English SDH and Spanish subtitles.  The Blu-ray includes a behind-the-scenes featurette entitled “All About Chuck.”

The CHUCK DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with English 5.1 Dolby Digital and English and Spanish subtitles.
