Universal brings us Tower Heist in February

Buy on Amazon

Universal Home Entertainment has just added Tower Heist to their release line-up, scheduling the Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller action-comedy for February.

When the staff of New York City’s most expensive and luxurious condominium discovers that the billionaire investment advisor living in the penthouse has plundered their retirement fund, they take matters into their own hands. Convinced that light-fingered Wall Street Titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) has stashed his ill-gotten millions in his apartment, building manager Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) rallies his troops and enlists the help of small-time thief Slide (Eddie Murphy) to make sure they get back what’s rightfully theirs. These rookie thieves—including high-strung concierge Charlie (Casey Affleck), broke ex-Wall Streeter Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick), new bellhop Dev’Reaux (Michael Peña) and feisty maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe)—know the building better than anyone.  It turns out they’ve been casing the place for years… they just didn’t know it.

Arriving as a Blu-Ray combo pack that contains the Blu-Ray and DVD version of the movie along with an Ultraviolet copy, the movie will feature a 1080p high definition transfer and high definition audio.

Also to be found on the release is a Commentary Track with director Brett Ratner, editor Mark Helfrich and co-writers Ted Griffin & Jeff Nathanson. Two Alternate Endings, Deleted Scenes, a Gag Reel and exclusive Behind-the-scenes Features on the making of the film will also be part of the release.

The Blu-ray Disc also includes Universal’s Second Screen — a technology that enhances the viewing experience by allowing viewers to simultaneously control and interact with the film and bonus material on a WiFi-connected tablet or computer as the movie plays on the television screen.  The new Flick View Feature will allow fans to interact even more with the movie and be able to move content from their tablet to their TV screen.

“Tower Heist” will take place on February 21 with a$29.99 price tag for the DVD version and a $34.98 sticker price for the Blu-Ray Combo.
