Posted Thu Feb 6, 2014 at 08:00 AM PST by

Martin Scorsese's unforgettable film starring Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, and Sandra Bernhard arrives on Blu-ray in March. You can pre-order this title here!

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is bringing 'The King of Comedy: 30th Anniversary Edition' to Blu-ray on March 25.

A funny thing happens to talk show host Jerry Langford (Lewis) on his way to the studio.... kidnapped by stand up comedian Rupert Pupkin (De Niro) and his wacky sidekick (Bernhard), Langford is forced to give Pupkin a shot at the big time by allowing the struggling comic to perform his routine on Langford's show. What unfolds is an incredibly funny and poignant story about the darker side of comedy.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 1.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Tribeca Film Festival: A Conversation with Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Jerry Lewis; A Shot to the Top: The Making of The King of Comedy; Deleted And Extended Scenes; and Theatrical Trailer and TV Spot.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
