OVERVIEW: Inspired by a remarkable moment in history when the world came together for one common cause, Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of the true events that transpired when a family of whales became trapped beneath the deadly Arctic Circle ice. Directed by Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and starring Golden Globe® winner Drew Barrymore (50 First Dates, He’s Just Not That Into You) and John Krasinski (“The Office,” It’s Complicated), Big Miracle is available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, and On Demand on June 19, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
