Toast of this year's Academy and BAFTA Awards, The King's Speech is the cinematic phenomenon of the year. Now set to become the must-have home entertainment release of 2011, Momentum Pictures proudly presents The King's Speech on DVD and Blu-ray from 9th May 2011.

Having captured the imagination of a global audience, The King's Speech has quickly become one of the most beloved films of recent years, storming the international box office and receiving unanimous critical support.

The overwhelming affection felt for this majestic cinematic achievement has also extended to a wealth of international awards success, including 12 Academy Award nominations and four wins (Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay), seven BAFTA Awards (Best Film, Leading Actor, Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor, Outstanding British Film, Original Screenplay and Original Music) and a Golden Globe Best Actor Award for Colin Firth. With a further twelve Oscar® nominations amongst the many, many accolades to date, The King's Speech is already an unstoppable triumph of royal proportions and the film's impending DVD and Blu-ray release will only serve to further cement the film as a true modern classic.

Based on the true story of King George VI's epic journey to overcome immense personal difficulties on his way to the throne,The King's Speech deftly explores the touching and intricate personal relationship between a reluctant king and the unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue. With the threat of the Second World War growing on the horizon, the king must discover hidden worth to become the voice of, and inspiration for, the nation.

Packed with sumptuously detailed extra features and oozing with class, elegance and wit, The King's Speech is one royal appointment fans will be queuing up to honour.

After the death of his father King George and the scandalous abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII, Bertie, who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of the United Kingdom.
