Fans of the "We Are Marshall" movie can now have their own copy. The DVD went on sale Tuesday.
Both wide-screen and full-screen editions are available and some stores also carry a special collector's edition that comes with a Marshall University stadium towel.
The movie, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Matthew Fox, chronicles the aftermath of a 1970 plane crash that killed most of Marshall's football team. Much of the Warner Bros. film was shot in and around Huntington.
West Virginia Film Office director Pam Haynes says the DVD includes features on the state of West Virginia, Marshall University and legendary coaches.
