Academy Award-nominated Nightmare Alley is now available on digital, 4k, and Blu-ray. The Best Picture nominee was co-written by Guillermo del Toro and Kim Morgan, based on William Lindsay Gresham’s novel. The film noir follows the charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper) as he runs away from a past he can't quite escape and joins a traveling carnival.
Once there, he endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn). After newly acquired knowledge from Zeena and Pete, Stanton is able to grift his way to the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet.
