Stand By Me starring Richard Dreyfuss, Wil Wheaton and River Phoenix coming to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the 1986 classic STAND BY ME, starring Richard Dreyfuss, Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Keifer Sutherland, Jerry O’Connell and Corey Feldman, will be released on March 22, 2011.  STAND BY ME is one of the classic coming of age films which was directed by Rob Reiner. It follows a group of young friends who bond over their search for a dead body (that sounds really morbid). The movie was based on a story from Stephen King. The Blu-ray will exclusively offer a new BonusView picture-in-picture track.

I know a lot of people love STAND BY ME and I can totally respect that.  I don’t really have that kind of connection because I didn’t see it until many years later. However, it is one of those films that really just needs to be in every collection because it just makes you look a little smarter and cultured. Special features for STAND BY ME include:
