Now that the movie has finished its theatrical run, Sony Pictures has announced the official Blu-ray release date for Brightburn. The horror superhero story arrives on digital August 6, then it will hit stores a couple of weeks later. In spite of the fact that the movie wasn’t a massive box-office sensation, producer James Gunn has teased the making of a sequel. In the meantime, Gunn is working on the upcoming The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, so it may take a little longer to see the project on the big screen. That gives everyone time to catch up on the first one this summer.
