On The Rocks stars Rashida Jones and Bill Murray and is from filmmaker Sofia Coppola.

A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city – drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.

The physical release will come almost exactly a year after the movie landed on Apple TV+ — it premiered on October 23, 2020. This isn't the first time Apple TV+ content has appeared on a disc, though. The excellent Defending Jacob show is already up for grabs.
