A favorite among many Julia Roberts fans, My Best Friend’s Wedding was released just in time for Christmas of 1997, but was sadly lacking any extra features. Now Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is preparing a new Special Edition of the film for release this August.
Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz and Rupert Everett star in this high-spirited romantic comedy that serves up something wild, something new, something touching and something truly hilarious. Roberts dazzles as commitment-shy Jules Potter, who reluctantly realizes she is in love with her best friend Michael (Mulroney). There is just one catch: he’s about to marry someone else. Comically crazed and full of devious plans, Jules will do anything to steal him back… except tell him the simple truth.
The new DVD will come with an anamorphic widescreen transfer with audio presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Stereo. The disc will contain a new documentary: “Unveiled: The Making of `My Best Friend’s Wedding’”, HBO’s making-of Featurette “On the Set”, Wedding Do’s and Dont’s – Helpful Hints for the Soon to Be Wed, My Best Friend’s Wedding Album: Behind-the-Scenes Facts and Trivia, “Say A Little Prayer” Sing-A-Long, theatrical trailers and cast and crew filmographies. There will also be DVD-ROM content including a “Soul Mate Quiz” and “Do-It-Yourself Photo Screensaver”.
“My Best Friend’s Wedding” Special Edition will be available from Columbia TriStar on August 28, for $24.95.
