More About Adventureland
The most hilariously awful job in the world turns into the most unforgettable summer of a young man’s life in Adventureland, coming to Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD from Miramax Films and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Director Greg Mottola follows up his runaway hit comedy Superbad with an irreverent and insightful look back at the summer of 1987 and that last bittersweet moment between college and the “real world.” Available in Two-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def, Two- Disc DVD and Single-Disc DVD, Adventureland will keep viewers in stitches long after the summer is past with its outrageous comedy and array of “funtastic” bonus features. The Blu-ray Hi-Def edition also includes a Digital Copy of the movie that can be viewed on an array of electronic devices.
