Z For Zachariah (2015), an emotionally-charged post-apocalyptic drama starring Margot Robbie (Focus), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) and Chris Pine (Star Trek), will be available on DVD/Blu-ray on October 20, 2015.

The Craig Zobel-directed film, which hit U.S. theaters and On Demand on August 28, 2015 via Roadside Attractions, centers on Ann Burden (Margot), a village girl who survives a nuclear war and meets John Loomis (Chiwetel), a coldly rational scientist. As the two build a connection, Caleb (Chris) shows up and their bond begins to unravel.
