    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - SteelBook Blu-ray

    The classic John Hughes comedy starring Steve Martin and John Candy celebrates its 35th anniversary with a 4K UHD Blu-ray including over an hour's worth of brand new content on November 22.

    Steve Martin and John Candy star in this hysterical tale of travel gone awry. Neal Page (Martin) is an uptight ad exec trying to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family. When rerouted to Wichita, Neal reluctantly partners with Del Griffith (Candy), an obnoxious yet loveable salesman. Together, they embark on a cross-country adventure filled with outrageously funny situations and a generous helping of warmth.

    The newly-remastered film not only arrives on a 4K UHD Blu-ray presented in HDR-10 & Dolby Vision, the release will also include a "bonus “LOST LUGGAGE” Blu-ray Disc™ containing over an hour of never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes that were recently discovered in the archives of writer, producer and director John Hughes. The newly uncovered footage offers a unique glimpse into the filmmaking and editing process and features even more hilarious moments between Steve Martin and John Candy."
