The 1980 Zucker, Zucker & Abrahams production Airplane! is returning to DVD this winter, courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment.
The Airplane! – Don’t Call Me Shirley Edition puts you in first class, serving exactly what you asked for – more side-splitting laughs and more behind-the-scenes secrets, as an ex-fighter pilot is forced to take the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning. The persons and events in this films are fictitious – fortunately – as it turns into an off-the-wall comedy.
This version will offer up an anamorphic widescreen transfer of the movie with a 5.1 channel Dolby Digital track. The release will also include a Commentary Track by producer Josh Davidson, and writers/directors Jim Abrahams, Jerry Zucker and David Zucker.
The version presented on the release will be the “Longhaul Version” featuring Deleted Scenes and Interviews all threaded into the film, accessible via Branching throughout the movie. A Trivia Track will also be included as well as the movie’s original Trailer.
“Airplane! – Don’t Call Me Shirley Edition” will be ready for take-off on December 13. Ticket prices start at $19.99.
