According to ShockTillYouDrop.com & Fangoria.com there will be no US theatrical release for Dorian Gray. Instead, the movie will go straight to DVD.
Dorian Gray, the newest screen version of the Oscar Wilde novel, starring Ben Barnes, Colin Firth, Rebecca Hall and Rachel Hurd-Wood, will hit DVD August 24th from National Entertainment Media and E1 Distribution.
To celebrate the release of Dorian Gray, we’re giving 2 lucky readers the chance to win a money can’t buy goody bag that contains an exclusive Dorian Gray T-Shirt, a copy of the book and a poster signed by Ben Barnes!
Young Dorian arrives fresh on the London social scene and is taken under the wing of Lord Henry Wotton (Colin Firth of MAMMA MIA) who introduces him to the seedy pleasures of London life. When Dorian sees how incredible he looks in a newly painted picture of himself, he swears to do whatever it takes to look as young and handsome in real life as he does in the picture – forever.
His stunning good looks and charm soon attract the celebrity lifestyle and everything that it brings. Dorian finds himself slipping deeper and deeper into a world of sin, sex and celebrity, seemingly without any consequences. But as his actions become increasingly evil, for how long can he hide the secret behind his eternal youth?
