Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Selects Aug. 25 As The Street Date For Both DVD And Blu-ray Editions Of Filmmaker Cameron Crowe's Aloha

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Auteur filmmaker Cameron Crowe’s latest film, Aloha, will be making its way to DVD and Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on Aug. 25.  

This romantic comedy, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams, failed to connect with audiences as an almost universally-panned and very muddled script — with way too much political nonsense for a light romantic comedy — undercutting the budding romantic vibes between Cooper and Stone at nearly every turn.  

Box office receipts were light at just $20.9 million … the ARR is a zippy 88 days and with that pre-Labor Day street date, Sony Pictures is making it fairly clear that it is time to move on and say aloha to Aloha.

Bonus features include the featurette titled “The Untitled Hawaii Project: The Making of Aloha” and a gag reel … exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are commentary by filmmaker Cameron Crowe (perhaps he will offer insight into what he was thinking … he also produced and wrote the script), an alternated ending, deleted scenes and four additional featurettes.
