Movie News | May 28th, 2009

The most hilariously awful job in the world turns into the most unforgettable summer of a young man’s life in Adventureland, coming to Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and DVD from Miramax Films and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Director Greg Mottola follows up his runaway hit comedy Superbad with an irreverent and insightful look back at the summer of 1987 and that last bittersweet moment between college and the “real world.” Available in Two-Disc Blu-ray™ Hi-Def, Two-Disc DVD and Single-Disc DVD, Adventureland will keep viewers in stitches long after the summer is past with its outrageous comedy and array of “funtastic” bonus features. The Blu-ray™ Hi-Def edition also includes a Digital Copy of the movie that can be viewed on an array of electronic devices.

The film boasts a fresh young cast with impeccable comedy pedigrees including Jesse Eisenberg (The Squid and the Whale), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Martin Starr (Knocked Up), Bill Hader (Tropic Thunder), Kristen Wiig (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Ryan Reynolds (X-Men Origins: Wolverine). Its irresistible vintage soundtrack rolls back time more than two decades with great ‘80s pop songs by iconic music acts of the era, including The Cure, David Bowie, Crowded House, INXS, Lou Reed and more.


Both the Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and Two-Disc DVD editions of Adventureland include these exciting bonus features:

· Audio Commentary – With writer/director Greg Mottola and actor Jesse Eisenberg

· Just My Life: The Making Of Adventureland – Director and writer Greg Mottola sits down to reveal how his real life experiences helped inspire his unique comic vision for Daytrippers, Superbad, Arrested Development and now Adventureland.

· Picture Music Selection

The Blu-ray™ Hi-Def edition of Adventureland keeps the fun coming with:

· Frigo’s Ball Tap – The “drive by,” the “ambush,” the “stranger,” the “tying of the shoe” and the knee-buckling, tear-inducing “Bangkok” are just a few of the nad numbing moves demonstrated by the testicle tapping guru himself, Matt Bush.

· Lisa P’s Guide To Style – Ms. “Rides, Rides, Rides” herself, Lisa P (Margarita Levieva), shares her totally hip, totally ‘80s fashion advice from spiral locks to neon pink nail polish.
