Tropic Thunder deploys on November 18, 2008 in a Unrated Director’s Cut on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as in a single-disc DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment. Directed by and starring Ben Stiller (Zoolander) and featuring an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda), Danny McBride (Foot Fist Way), Nick Nolte (The Spiderwick Chronicles), and Steve Coogan (Hamlet 2), Tropic Thunder is “laugh-until-your-stomach-hurts hilarious” (San Francisco Chronicle). The film follows five pampered actors on the set of a Vietnam War movie who are thrust into real-life danger and forced to become the fighting unit they’re portraying in order to survive. The result is an over-the-top, unforgettable film that is “a knockout of a comedy that keeps you laughing” (Rolling Stone).
