Magnolia Home Entertainment announced earlier this week that Grand Piano will be hitting shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on May 20. This exciting suspense thriller starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack takes Frodo on a wild symphony he’ll never forget. Check out what special features you can find after the break.
Ever since I saw the firs trailer for Grand Piano I have been raving about this movie even though I haven’t even seen it. It’s like Phone Booth meets Speed in one of the most insanely brilliant concepts ever. And the fact that Elijah Wood is the point man in this film is absolutely brilliant.
I would really like to see in the special features how exactly they were able to convey Wood as this amazing concert pianist. What kind of sorcery did they use? The editing on the trailer is seamless. We’ll just have to wait and see.
The Blu-ray and DVD special features for Grand Piano includes:
- • Behind The Scenes
- AXS TV: A Look at Grand Piano

Check out the plot of Grand Piano below, courtesy of Magnolia Home Entertainment:
Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, stopped performing in public because of his stage fright. Years after a catastrophic performance, he reappears in public in a long awaited concert in Chicago. In a packed theater, in front of the expectant audience, Tom finds a message written on the score: “Play one wrong note and you die.” Without leaving the piano, Tom must discover the anonymous sniper’s motives and look for help without anyone realizing.
Watch the trailer here:
Pretty awesome right? Just from the trailer alone I get a rush of energy from the suspense of the music and the unique, twisting shots. It feels like a throwback to old Hitchcock movies.
Grand Piano releases on home video Blu-ray and DVD March 4, but you can get it on Digital HD on February 18.
