Previously only available high def on HD-DVD, both Simon Pegg / Edgar Wright comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are coming to Blu-ray in September.
There comes a day in every man’s life when he has to get off the couch…and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it’s up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal to save their friends and family from becoming the next entree. Satisfy your bloodthirsty appetite with the movie that masters of horror and film critics alike are hailing as the funniest and scariest movie of the year. Novelist Stephen King gushes “it’s a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic.” and Newsweek calls Shaun Of The Dead “a bloody hoot!” It’s a screamingly hilarious zomedy that will have you dying with laughter.
In “Hot Fuzz” get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun Of The Dead. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can’t be stopped – but he’s making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting, big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling “Outrageous! Uproariously funny!” (Thelma Adams, US Weekly).
Both films will finally arrive on Blu-Ray Disc on September 22nd from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Look for exciting extras to be announced soon.
