Alternate Ending on ‘The Rite’ Home Video Release

Warner Home Video has announced DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo releases of The Rite (review) which stars Anthony Hopkins, Colin O’Donoghue, Alice Braga, Ciarán Hinds, and Rutger Hauer.

Each will be available to own from May 17th. DVD Active reports that the only extra material on the DVD release will be additional scenes. The Blu-ray/DVD Combo release will include those scenes, plus a chilling alternate ending, a featurette (“The Rite: Soldier of God”), and a digital copy of the film.

The Rite follows skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue), who reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While he’s in Rome, Michael meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith, uncovering the devil’s reach even to one of the holiest places on Earth.
