    TROPIC THUNDER

    THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS COMEDY BLOCKBUSTER OF THE YEAR EXPLODES IN AN UNRATED DIRECTOR’S CUT
    ON DVD AND BLU-RAY

    Hysterical Box Office Smash Takes Audiences by Storm November 18, 2008 with Never-Before-Seen Footage, an Alternate Ending, a Hilarious Faux Documentary, Commentaries and Much, Much More


    HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – “The best comedy of the year” (Newsweek) that “will blow your mind” (Rolling Stone) takes no prisoners when TROPIC THUNDER deploys on
    November 18, 2008 in a Unrated Director’s Cut on DVD and Blu-ray, as well as in a single-disc DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment. Directed by and starring Ben Stiller (Zoolander) and featuring an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda), Danny McBride (Foot Fist Way), Nick Nolte (The Spiderwick Chronicles), and Steve Coogan (Hamlet 2), TROPIC THUNDER is “laugh-until-your-stomach-hurts hilarious” (San Francisco Chronicle). The film follows five pampered actors on the set of a Vietnam War movie who are thrust into real-life danger and forced to become the fighting unit they’re portraying in order to survive. The result is an over-the-top, unforgettable film that is “a knockout of a comedy that keeps you laughing” (Rolling Stone).

    The TROPIC THUNDER Unrated Director’s Cut two-disc DVD set includes the feature film with over 14 minutes of never-before-seen footage and comes fully loaded with an arsenal of special features that take viewers even deeper into the s&*t including
    Rain of Madness, an uproarious faux documentary about the making of the film within a film, filmmaker and cast commentaries (including some in character), behind-the-scenes featurettes, cast profiles, “Dispatches from the Edge of Madness”, deleted and extended scenes, including an alternate ending, TROPIC THUNDER at the MTV Movie Awards and more.
