It's time to quirkily question your place in the universe with the impending Blu-ray and DVD release of Wes Anderson's Asteroid City. The idiosyncractic cosmic romp from the undisputed master of methodical filmmaking arrives on physical media Tuesday, August 15 with an interstellar vessel chock full of bonus features.

If you can't wait that long to catch a glimpse of Jeff Goldblum's meteor-stealing extraterrestrial, don't worry — the film is also hitting Digital (along with a number of exclusive goodies) as well as Peacock four days prior on Friday, August 11.

Framed as a televised stage production and featuring one of the most impressive ensemble casts in recent memory, Asteroid City takes place against the backdrop of a fictional town in the American Southwest, circa 1955, where regular atomic tests — and a curious visitor from another planet — are simply par for the course.
