500 Days of Summer available on Blu-ray and DVD December 22nd

Movie News | Oct 17th, 2009

500 Days of Summer was the indie film to see this summer. Of course I didn’t bother to see it in theaters. The film will be coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 22nd. Since I like Zooey Deschanel, I’ll definitely check this one out. Be sure to check out the soundtrack as well, which features a new song from She & Him (Zooey and M. Ward’s band).

Read the press release below:

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn’t. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents the critically acclaimed, offbeat romance that proves when it comes to love some people know nothing at all as (500) Days of Summer arrives on Blu-ray Disc (BD) and DVD December 22. Zooey Deschanel (Yes Man) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) star in this quirky romantic comedy about love and fate, as a young greeting card writer (Gordon-Levitt) who is hopelessly, helplessly searching for the girl of his dreams… and his new co-worker, Summer Finn (Deschanel), may just be “the one.” But the 500 days of their offbeat relationship reveal (in no particular order) that the road to happiness can be unpredictable, uncontrollable — and unbelievably funny! From first time feature film director Marc Webb (Jesse McCartney: Up Close), the hilarious true-to-life film also stars Matthew Gray Gubler (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Clark Gregg (“The New Adventures of Old Christine”) in a unique dissection of the uncertain and whimsical year-and-a-half of one young man’s no-holds-barred love affair, where he learns that love can be difficult, but it’s also by far the best thing life has to offer.

The (500) Days of Summer two-disc BD with Digital Copy* includes cast and crew commentary, deleted and extended scenes, a “making-of” featurette, Summer storyboards, audition tapes, music videos and much more, and will be available for the gift-giving price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada. The (500) Days of Summer standard DVD features the cast and crew commentary, deleted and extended scenes, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada. Prebook is November 25.
