RBG, one of this year's many huge documentary hits, is just the first of two stories we'll get this year about legendary Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. (The dramatized version, On the Basis of Sex, hits theaters near the end of the year.)
The doc looked at Ginsburg's years as a feminist and progressive icon, and of course her ascendance as a meme. But the film took on a different relevance as she's now one of the Court's few remaining liberal voices, and with her advanced age (she turned 85 this year) may not hold onto her seat for much longer, meaning Donald Trump could be naming her successor, in addition to Anthony Kennedy's.
The DVD and Blu-ray features deleted and extended scenes, as well as bonus interviews. The film will likely get a big push at awards season, not only in the documentary category, but also the original song category. Oscar nominee Diane Warren penned the theme song "I'll Fight," sung by Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson.
RBG will be released on August 28, but hits digital platforms on August 3.
