Universal has announced that Bridesmaids, undisputedly one of 2011’s most talked about titles, is set for a Triple Play Blu-ray Disc release this Autumn. The terrifically funny, smart and tender comedy has yet to be assigned an official release date in Europe, but a whole host of special features have been confirmed which Blu-ray.com has got the inside track on.
Directed by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, Kristen Wiig stars as Annie, a thirtysomething singleton whose life is a failure thanks to a bankrupt business, the flatmates from hell and a selfish love interest played by Mad Men’s Jon Hamm. Best friend and confidant Lillian (Maya Rudolph) then drops the bombshell that she’s soon to be married, and so the chaos ensues as Annie instantly takes a dislike to fellow bridesmaid Helen (Rose Byrne) and battles her way through posh functions, a disastrous hen party and a now notorious dress fitting. Bridesmaids pulls off the remarkable by being brutal and gentle in equal measure, providing side splitting moments of comedy and cringe-worthy content that’s bound to leave a lasting impression.
Set to include an additional six minutes of unseen footage, the Triple Play edition will include a BD, DVD and digital copy of the movie, alongside audio commentaries from the cast and crew, outtakes of Wiig’s infamous plane scene in ‘Drunk-O-Rama’, and ‘Annie vs. Helen’ in which Wiig’s and Byrne’s best and worst moments are compiled. Also included are deleted, extended and alternate scenes.
