The Sandra Bullock film will hit store shelves on March 23, a couple of weeks after the Oscars, where Bullock is expected to pick up her first statuette. Full announcement, with extras details, after the jump.
Based on the extraordinary true story, The Blind Side arrives on Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack March 23rd from Warner Home Video. Sandra Bullock stars in this heartwarming real life account of All-American football star Michael Oher.
Teenager Michael Oher is living on his own when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy. Learning that the young man is one of her daughter's classmates, Leigh Anne invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds. And as the family helps Michael fulfill his potential both on and off the football field, Michael leads them to some insightful self-discoveries.

Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughter's classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael--wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the dead of winter--come out of the cold. Without a moment's hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds.
Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. And as the family helps Michael fulfill his potential, both on and off the football field, Michael's presence in the Tuohys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.
