LAY THE FAVORITE

ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD


The Star-Powered Comedy Heads To Retail On March 5, 2013!



BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS-TWC announced today the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of LAY THE FAVORITE from two time Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, High Fidelity). The films all-star cast includes Bruce Willis (The Die Hard Franchise), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago), Rebecca Hall (The Town) and Joshua Jackson (“Dawson’s Creek”).  LAY THE FAVORITE heads to retail on March 5, 2013 with an SRP of $29.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $24.98 for the DVD.


Get ready to get lucky! Professional odds-maker Dink (Bruce Willis) is running a small-time sports gambling enterprise when a former stripper named Beth (Rebecca Hall) promises to help him score big — and turns his world upside down. With his connections and her knack for numbers, the lucrative business of sports betting will never be the same. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Joshua Jackson round out the talented cast of misfits who are willing to risk everything for their dreams. Sly and sexy, heart-warming and hilarious, LAY THE FAVORITE, directed by Stephen Frears, delivers laughs and thrills in this vivid exposé of the world of gambling based on the Beth Raymer’s best-selling memoir, “Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling.”



The LAY THE FAVORITE Blu-ray™ and DVD special feature includes deleted scenes.
