Miles Teller And Shailene Woodley Star In The Critically Acclaimed

Coming Of Age Tale Arriving On Blu-ray and DVD January 14th

From Lionsgate Home Entertainment



SANTA MONICA, CA (November 4, 2013) – Featuring acclaimed performances by Miles Teller (21 and Over) and Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), stars of the upcoming 2014 theatrical release Divergent, the disarmingly powerful The Spectacular Now, arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD UltraViolet) and DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) January 14th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.  Following a successful theatrical run via A24, this winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, “hits you like a shot in the heart” (Rolling Stone) with a story that follows high school senior Sutter Keely as his “live in the moment” outlook on life is changed forever when he meets the not-so-average girl next door.  From screenwriters Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber ((500) Days of Summer, the upcoming The Fault in Our Stars), the film is directed by James Ponsoldt (Smashed), and co-stars Brie Larson (Don Jon21 Jump Street), Bob Odenkirk (TV’s “Breaking Bad”) and Dayo Okeniyi (The Hunger Games). It also features Jennifer Jason Leigh (Rush, Showtime’s “Weeds”), and a scene-stealing performance by Kyle Chandler (Argo, TV’s “Friday Night Lights”).


With sly humor and an intensity of feeling, The Spectacular Now creates a vivid, three-dimensional portrait of youth confronting the funny, thrilling and perilous business of modern love and adulthood.  Based on the Tim Tharp book, this is the tale of Sutter Keely (Teller), a high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with "the good girl" Aimee Finecky (Woodley). What starts as an unlikely romance, becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth – one that doesn’t look for tidy truths. 


The Blu-ray and DVD bonus materials include an extensive four-part “making of” featurette, deleted scenes and audio commentary with Director James Ponsoldt. The Spectacular Now Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
