All The Money In The World, director Ridley Scott’s film that centers on the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) hits Blu-ray and DVD April 10 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The movie contains eight deleted scenes, and three featurettes (“Ridley Scott: Crafting a Historical Thriller,” “Hostages to Fortune: The Cast,” and “Recast, Reshot, Reclaimed”).
