David Oyelowo (Selma) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) star in A United Kingdom, the true story of the relationship between London office worker Ruth Williams (Pike) and Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana. Amma Asante, who helmed the acclaimed 2013 feature Belle, directs the Guy Hibbert (Eye in the Sky) penned script.
Gone Girl comes with a new “Amazing Amy” story titled “Tattle Tale,” and the 36-page children’s book is only available with the purchase of the Blu-ray edition.
Along with “Tattle Tale,” the Blu-ray also comes with audio commentary from director David Fincher.
Gone Girl shook off three new films to retain the top spot at the box-office, as it made $26.8 million. The closest challenger to the film was Dracula Untold, which made $23.5 million. Robert Downey Jr.’ s star power couldn’t life The Judge from a mediocre opening weekend, as it limped into fifth place.
