'Frankie Go Boom' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Mar 1, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

Jordan Roberts' zany comedy hits Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios says 'Frankie Go Boom' will have a Blu-ray release on May 14.

Two brothers, a girl with a broken heart, a sex tape, an angel... and a pig. For his whole life, Frank (Charlie Hunnam) has been tortured, embarrassed and humiliated on film by his horrible brother, Bruce (Chris O'Dowd). When Bruce makes and uploads a video of a disastrous one-night stand featuring Frank, the sex tape immediately becomes a viral hit and things really hit the fan. Will Jack (Chris Noth), Bruce's violent drug-fiend rehab buddy, find out it's his daughter (Lizzy Caplan) in the video? Can Phyllis (Ron Perlman), Bruce's transsexual computer hacker prison buddy, get them out of trouble? 'Frankie Go Boom' is a comedy about brotherly hate, amateur porn, and the dangers of online fame.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Behind the Scenes: Interviews with Roberts and his ensemble; Deleted and Alternate Scenes: Roberts introduces each omitted scene with insights into his editing process; and Pig in the Pool: A short featurette surrounding one of the film's most memorable characters, a pig.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.98.
