Save the Date: The Big Year Coming to DVD & Blu-ray

 

The Big Year will be coming out on DVD and Blu-ray in just a few weeks, on January 31st.

I really enjoyed the movie both times I managed to see it during its theatrical run, which was unfortunately quite short.

 

The first time was a midnight screening opening day where Arthur and I were the only attendees. Just three weeks later we caught it again, this time at a second-run cinema with a handful of other viewers.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing The Big Year again in the comfort of home in just a few weeks, and I'm especially looking forward to seeing the extended version and what extras the producers will be including with the release. Extras slated for the Blu-ray include a behind-the-scenes feature, 14 deleted scenes, and a gag reel.

 

The publicity department at Fox is gearing up for The Big Year release; here's hoping that DVD and Blu-ray sales perform better than the initial box office run! If you're gearing up for the upcoming home video release too, here's a cute graphic Big Year / New Year's Resolutions Checklist you can print out as a reminder. January 31st - save the date!
