'The Open Road' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Sep 16, 2009 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Anchor Bay Entertainment will bring 'The Open Road' to Blu-ray in November.

In 'The Open Road,' minor leaguer Carlton Garrett (Justin Timberlake) takes an unexpected road trip to track down his estranged father, legendary baseball player Kyle Garrett (Jeff Bridges), when Carlton’s mother (Mary Steenburgen) becomes sick. Knowing his charming yet painfully immature dad’s likelihood to disappoint, Carlton enlists his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy (Kate Mara) for emotional support. Once reunited, Carlton struggles to deal with the series of misadventures caused by his father’s antics, including missed flights, car trouble, and bathroom brawls. Years of miscommunication, frustration, and comically awkward attempts at bonding come to a head as the mismatched trio make their way from Ohio back home to Houston to reunite the family.

Available November 17, the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and the same supplements on the DVD release including an audio Commentary with Writer/Director Michael Meredith and Actor Jeff Bridges, “Behind the Scenes of The Open Road,” and a theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.98.
