Now that Easter has come and gone, it’s time for Son of God to look beyond its theatrical release — and sure enough, yesterday came word that the Blu-Ray and DVD release is set for June 3. According to High-Def Digest, the bonus features will include: “Son of God: Reborn; Making of Video (includes Spanish version); Son of God Set; and Compassion Video.” Curiously, this movie, which consists of about four episodes’ worth of the ten-episode mini-series The Bible, is currently selling at Amazon for $35.99 (a slight reduction from the official retail price of $39.99), whereas The Bible itself is selling in its entirety for $29.99 (less than half the official retail price of $69.99).
