A Miramax Films Release  


Available on 2-disc Blu-Ray Hi-Def with Digital Copy, Two-Disc DVD and Single Disc 
DVD on August 25, 2009 
Burbank, Calif., May 22, 2009 – The most hilariously awful job in the world turns into the most 
unforgettable summer of a young man’s life in 
Adventureland, coming to Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD from 
Miramax Films and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Director Greg Mottola follows up his runaway hit 
Superbad with an irreverent and insightful look back at the summer of 1987 and that last 
bittersweet moment between college and the “real world.” Available in Two-Disc Blu-ray
 Hi-Def, Two- 
Disc DVD and Single-Disc DVD, Adventureland will keep viewers in stitches long after the summer is 
past with its outrageous  comedy and array of “funtastic” bonus features. The Blu-ray
 Hi-Def edition also 
includes a Digital Copy of the movie that can be viewed on an array of electronic devices.   

The film boasts a fresh young cast with impeccable comedy pedigrees including Jesse Eisenberg (The 
Squid and the Whale
), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Martin Starr (Knocked Up), Bill Hader (Tropic Thunder), 
Kristen Wiig (
Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Ryan Reynolds (X-Men Origins: Wolverine). Its irresistible 
vintage soundtrack rolls back time more than two decades with great ‘80s pop songs by iconic music 
acts of the era, including The Cure, David Bowie, Crowded House, INXS, Lou Reed and more.  

Both the Blu-ray
 Hi-Def and Two-Disc DVD editions of Adventureland include these exciting bonus

by the testicle tapping guru himself, Matt Bush.  
 Lisa P’s Guide To Style – Ms. “Rides, Rides, Rides” herself, Lisa P (Margarita Levieva), shares 
her totally hip, totally ‘80s fashion advice from spiral locks to neon pink nail polish.
