Get Scrooged this Halloween with a Special Edition

Paramount Home Entertainment has made arrangements to release Richard Donner’s modern-day Scrooged as a Special Edition in October.

A network TV president is perhaps the most cold-hearted man ever, but his holiday spirit is given a painful booster shot by three vengeful ghosts. In this darkly comic updating of Charles Dicken’s Christmas classic “A Christmas Carol”, Bill Murray portrays Frank Cross, an evil, crass, executive who caters to the lowest-of-the-lowest common denominators, firing people whenever he wants to and for the flimsiest of reasons. Therefore, to change his cruel and tasteless ways, Cross is taken on a trip through his past to his future, accompanied by ghosts David Johansen and Carol Kane, so that he can achieve redemption.

The Special “Scrooged – Yule Love It” Edition DVD will come with a number of great extras, such as a Commentary Track by Richard Donner, and a ShoWest Message from Bill Murray. Also included are a number of Featurettes,/b>, such as A Christmas To Remember, Update Ebenezer, Bringing Ghosts To Life, The Look Of Scrooged and On The Set With Bill Murray. The DVD will be rounded out by the movie’s Theatrical Trailer.

“Scrooged – Yule Love It” will be in stores on October 31 with a $19.98 price tag attached to it.
