Becket (Blu-Ray) in November

Released to rave reviews last year in standard definition, **MPI** has announced a November 25th release date for Becket (Blu-Ray). This Peter O'Toole epic will retail for $34.98, but is available at for only $27.99. No concrete details yet, but we've listed the synopsis and bonus features from the SD version below which will most likely carry over to this BD release.

Peter O'Toole delivers an electrifying performance as the mischievous Henry II, who surprises England by naming his fellow rogue and trusted valet Thomas Becket (Richard Burton in a career defining role) as Chancellor.

But when Henry next appoints him Archbishop Of Canterbury, Becket shocks the world by openly defying the King with his newfound faith and compassion. Will a desperate ruler now destroy a beloved friend to save his splintering kingdom? John Gielgud co-stars in this stunning epic based on the Broadway sensation and brought to the screen by Hal Wallis, the legendary producer of Anne of a Thousand Days, True Grit and Casablanca.
