‘Miles Ahead’ DVD & Blu Ray August 2016 Release Announcement.

‘Miles Ahead’, the film on the inherent musical brilliance of mercurial jazz genius Miles Davis, written and directed by and starring Don Cheadle, arrives on digital platforms on Monday 15th August and on Blu-ray and DVD from Monday 22nd August, 2016, courtesy of Icon Film Distribution.

It’s 1979 and the world-renowned jazz musician Miles Davis is in a desperate rut. Miles hasn’t appeared publicly for six years and has not picked up a trumpet for three. His complete loss of musical inspiration, addiction to cocaine and alcohol, and chronic pain from a deteriorating hip have rendered him a virtual hermit, locked up in his wrecked Upper-West Side apartment in a deep depression. Despite all this, the record company to which Miles is signed are attempting to claim ownership of a mysterious tape in Miles’ possession, supposedly containing brand new unheard content, and they are prepared to go to great lengths to get their hands on it.

Starring Don Cheadle (Captain America: Civil War, Ocean’s Thirteen) as Miles Davis and Ewan McGregor (August: Osage County, Trainspotting 2)  as vivacious Rolling Stone journalist Dave Braden this film provides powerful performances and an insight into one of the most influential musicians in the 20th century.
