'The Heat' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Aug 15, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The hit buddy cop comedy will arrest Blu-ray in October.

In an early retailer announcement, 20th Century Fox has slated 'The Heat' for Blu-ray on October 15.

Oscar Winner Sandra Bullock and Oscar Nominee Melissa McCarthy team up in this outrageously funny comedy from the director of Bridesmaids, Paul Feig. Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Bullock) is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence--and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins (McCarthy), one of Boston P.D.'s "finest," is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Von Bloopers; Alternate Scenes; Police Brutality; Let's Get Physical; Acting Master Class; Supporting Cast Cavalcade; Making of Featurette; Over and Out; Audio Commentaries featuring Melissa McCarthy, director Paul Feig, and The Mullins Family; And more!

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
