BEVERLY HILLS, CA - Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company are proud to announce the home entertainment release of the critically acclaimed Fruitvale Station.

It also played in the Un Certain Regard section at this year's Festival de Cannes, taking home the Prize of the Future award. Most recently, the Independent Filmmaker Project nominated Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan for the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director and Breakthrough Actor awards, respectively. The film is also up for the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Audience Award.

The Weinstein Company released this compelling drama theatrically on July 12, 2013, where it went on to earn over $16 million at the box office, making it one of the top ten highest grossing indie films of 2013.

Scott asserts that Fruitvale Station is "a powerful and sensitive debut feature from Ryan Coogler."
