Get Him To The Greek with Russell Brand and Jonah Hill coming to Blu-ray September 28th
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Universal Studios is bringing GET HIM TO THE GREEK, starring Jonah Hill, Russell Brand and Rose Byrne to Blu-ray on September 28, 2010. The release will feature both the theatrical version of the film as well as an unrated version and is packed with additional footage as well as an option to choose one of three bonus movies (classic comedies, such as: UNCLE BUCK, DAZED & CONFUSED and LIFE) to stream instantly on Blu-ray, which will be available until March 31, 2011. That’s an interesting feature to include on a Blu-ray. I can only assume that Universal is hoping it will help their streaming movie service take off.
GET HIM TO THE GREEK received decent reviews and will have plenty of special features to check out if you are on the fence about adding it to your collection. I love that they got the cast together to do a commentary. I would have been disappointed without it. Special features include:
