One of the top 5 R-rated comedies of all time is bound for Blu-ray in September!
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios is working on 'Bridesmaids' for a Blu-ray release on September 20.
Hailed as “brazenly hysterical” by People Magazine and “the best comedy of 2011” (Back Stage), 'Bridesmaids' is the riotously funny and warmly outrageous comedy that has become the most talked about movie of the year. Critically acclaimed by fans and media alike, the “certified fresh” film (Rotten Tomatoes.com) received “two thumbs up! ®” from Ebert Presents. Surpassing 'Sex and the City' as the number one R-rated female comedy of all time, 'Bridesmaids' starring “Saturday Night Live” standouts Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, is produced by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow ('Knocked Up,' 'The 40-Year Old Virgin') and marks his most successful film ever.
Wiig and Rudolph are joined by an all-star comedy cast including Rose Byrne ('Get Him to the Greek,' “Damages”), Melissa McCarthy (“Mike and Molly,” “Samantha Who?”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Rules of Engagement,” “Reno 911”), Ellie Kemper (“The Office,” 'Somewhere'), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men,” 'Sucker Punch'), and Chris O’Dowd (“The IT Crowd,” 'Pirate Radio'). Directed by Paul Feig (“Nurse Jackie," “Arrested Development”) and written by The Groundlings comedy veterans Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig, 'Bridesmaids' is the must-own comedic phenomenon that fans will want to watch again and again!
The release will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo Pack (as well as a DVD/Digital Copy/Blu-ray Combo Pack) with the theatrical version and an all new never-before-seen unrated cut in 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Feature Commentary: With director Paul Feig, co-writer Annie Mumolo and cast members Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McClendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper; Line-o-rama; and Cholodecki’s Commercial: Check out what’s new with Cholodecki’s when you watch the never-before-seen “commercial” from Annie’s jewelry employer!
