This is the true story of Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch). Freshly graduated from college with a promising future ahead, McCandless instead walked out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people -- a fearless risk-taker who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature.

Great movie, though not quite as in depth as the book. Has a Hollywood spin.Published 11 days ago by Rsd3

|HD DVD - does it play on a blu-ray?||
Regular DVD's will play on any HD-DVD or Blu-ray player, it's called backwards compatibility. But HD-DVD and Blu-ray will only play in there respected players. Regular DVD player will not be able to play those disks.

|Into the Wild in HD DVD||
sure is. I already got it in the mail. It's an amazing film. Great picture and sound on HD DVD. I don't care if the format is dead. It's still great while I own it.

|No bluray ?||
Paramount originally sided with HD DVD. Now that Blu Ray has won the format "war", Paramount has to come out with new relase dates for movies in Blu Ray. Beowulf should be in the same boat.
