20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment Preps July Street Dates For Both Home And The Longest Ride

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment will be releasing the DreamWorks Animation production of director Tim Johnson’s animated film adaptation of Adam Rex’s kid fable, “The True Meaning of Smekday” — retitled for its theatrical release as simply, Home — on July 28 as a three-SKU selection. 

Fans can enjoy a stand-alone DVD edition or one of two Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packs (with or without a 3D viewing option).

The ARR comes in at 123 days and the box office take was an impressive $162.2 million (there is definitely a new franchise in the offing with this one). 

Bonus features — exclusive to the Blu-ray SKUs — include deleted scenes, a music jukebox, the Jennifer Lopez sing-a-long, “Feel the Light,” interactive features, tutorials and an array of featurettes, including one titled “This is Being Boov.”

Also added to the release calendar this week by 20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment is  director George Tillman Jr.’s film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ 2013 romance novel, The Longest Ride.   It will be available as both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings on July 14 … be sure to have a box of Kleenex handy.

The ARR works out to 95 days and ticket sales were a nice $35.3 million.  

The lives of an elderly car crash survivor named Ira (Alan Alda and Jack Huston at various ages) and the couple who rescue him, Sophia (Britt Robertson) and Luke (Scott Eastwood), become inner-connected with their stories becoming the source of both smiles and tears.   Yes, this is pure Nicholas Sparks … he has his way of making the same pattern seem different and fresh.  The Longest Ride is no exception.

Bonus features, all exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU, commentary by director George Tillman, Jr. (Faster, Men of Honor) and actress Oona Chaplin, five production features and both deleted and extended scenes.
