Coming soon, from a Galaxy not so very far away....
TO BLU-RAY & DVD IT WILL COME ON 4 OCTOBER 2010
From Producer Kevin Spacey
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... well, 1976 in California, there was a God, and that God was named George Lucas, and he created the greatest and most remarkable movie saga ever known to Man, Droid or Wookie...Star Wars. Lightspeed ahead to 1998 and four Star Wars fans hit the road in search of the impossible in the hilarious road trip comedy FANBOYS, released on Blu-ray and DVD on 4 October from Anchor Bay Entertainment.
Directed by Kyle Newman and produced by Kevin Spacey, this laugh-out-loud comedy features a fantastic cast including Sam Huntington (Superman Returns), Seth Rogen (Knocked Up, Step Brothers) Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Couples Retreat) Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, She’s Out of My League), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine), Danny Trejo (Anchorman, The Devil’s Rejects) and Dan Fogler (Love Happens, Taking Woodstock).
The film is also bursting with fanboy pleasing cameos Kevin Smith (Clerks), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars IV-VI), Ray Park (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, GI Joe), Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down, Pineapple Express), Jaime King (Sin City, My Bloody Valentine) and William Shatner (Star Trek).
Spurred by their impatience and an undying loyalty to their cause, five former high school friends reunite to undertake the road trip of their fan-tasies. Travelling west, across America to visit their Mecca – George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch. The plan is to break in, steal the first cut of The Phantom Menace six months before its worldwide release and stake their claim to be the first fanboys in history to watch it. They will need more than the force to be with them to overcome bizarre bikers, a crazy pimp and a deranged crew of Trekkies along their quest to hilarious consequences.
Released also on Blu-ray to extend the FANBOY experience armed with special features including a director’s commentary, deleted scenes and many more. The DVD and Blu-ray will also be available in a Limited Edition collector’s case, for the ultimate fanboy!
