Universal Studios Home Entertainment has tagged Nov. 10 as the consumer-ready street date for DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions of director Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck, a star vehicle for stand-up star Amy Schumer.
Expect to see Schumer in more films very soon as Trainwreck pulled in $107.2 million in domestic ticket sales and that translates to more screen appearances.
Especially so, since she wrote the script and teaming with Apatow puts her on the inside track to more adult-oriented theatrical comedies as he is no dummy in smelling-out the nuts and bolts of those elements (writing and acting) that yield hit film properties. It doesn’t hurt that Apatow and Kim Caramele are among the producers and that her co-star, Bill Hader is an Apatow regular. Now Bill Hader you know from Saturday Night Live and such films as Knocked Up, Superbad and Tropic Thunder, but who is Kim Caramele you might ask. That would be Amy’s younger sister and tour manager!
For the record, the ARR works out to an industry average of 116 days.
Universal has both DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions planned, with both SKUs featuring the theatrical cut of the film (R-Rated) and an unrated version (clocking in at an extra four minutes … likely featuring footage that might have pushed the film into NC-17 territory).
In addition to the two viewing choices, both home entertainment editions feature commentary from director Judd Apatow, writer and star of the film, Amy Schumer and associated producer Kim Caramele, a gag reel, deleted scenes and the “Line-O-Rama” feature.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack are extended scenes and four additional featurettes — “Behind the Scenes,” “Directing Athletes: A Blood Sport,” “The Dogwalker” and “Trainwreck Comedy Tour.”
