The Vow - Blu-ray and DVD release details

It's not all death, mayhem and violence here at the Lair. Once in awhile I do watch something that would probably fall into the category of "easy viewing", so to speak. The Vow, which stars Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, is one such movie. I actually caught it at the theater with my wonderful wife, and really enjoyed it. Sure, it's a little cheesy, but it was well done. Now it is set to get a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack release from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on May 8th.

The Vow also stars Sam Neill and Jessica Tandy.

CULVER CITY, CALIF. (April 2, 2012) – Rachel McAdams (Midnight in Paris, The Notebook) and Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, Dear John) rediscover the meaning of true love in THE VOW, coming to DVD and Blu-rayTM Combo Pack May 8th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Both DVD and Blu-rayTM Combo Pack include UltraViolet, which allows owners of the Blu-ray and DVD to add the film to their Digital Rights Library, enabling them to instantly stream or download the film. Inspired by true events, the romantic tale follows Paige (McAdams) and Leo (Tatum) after they survive a car accident that leaves Paige without any memory of the man she fell in love with or their marriage. It’s up to Leo to win back her heart … and her mind. The film also stars Sam Neill (TV’s “Alcatraz,” Jurassic Park), two-time Academy Award® winner Jessica Lange (Best Supporting Actress, Tootsie, 1982; Best Actress, Blue Sky, 1994) and Scott Speedman (Underworld).

The DVD and Blu-rayTM Combo Pack bonus features include commentary with Director Michael Sucsy, a gag reel and deleted scenes.  Exclusive to the Blu-rayTM Combo Pack are three behind-the-scenes featurettes: “’Til Death Do They Part,” a look at how the true-life story was made into the movie; “Profiles of Love: Paige and Leo,” which discusses what drew McAdams and Tatum to the project, as well as their perspectives on their characters and the film's themes; and “Trying to Remember,” explaining how trauma can affect memory.
