National Lampoon's Animal House coming to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the classic 1978 comedy NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE, directed by John Landis starring John Belushi, Karen Allen, Kevin Bacon, Tim Matheson, John Vernon and Donald Sutherland, will be available on Blu-ray July 26, 2011. The film takes place at a college in 1962 where Dean Vernon Wormer is determined to expel the entire Delta Tau Chi fraternity but those guys have other plans for him.
It’s hard to believe that this film was made all the way back in 1978 and is still probably one of the most popular comedies of all time. Does this just confirm that college fraternities haven’t changed in over three decades? Just kidding frat guys, I’m sure you don’t still have toga parties, and plot practical jokes, right? Special features for NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE include:
- U-Control Scene Companion: Watch cast and crew interviews during key scenes with this picture-in-picture companion.
- U-Control, The Music of Animal House: Instantly identify the songs heard while watching the film, create a custom playlist of your favorites and even purchase songs from iTunes.
- The Yearbook, An Animal House Reunion: An original documentary featuring interviews with key members of the cast and crew, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and clips with John Belushi.
