OWN THE YEAR’S ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE!

 

NEED FOR SPEED

 

Bring Home the Real Action on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD,

DVD and On-Demand August 5, 2014

 

Tricked Out With Never-Before-Seen Bonus Features, Including Audio Commentary, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes, Making-Of Featurettes, and More!

 

BURBANK, Calif. May 16, 2014 — This summer, own the year’s ultimate thrill ride when Need for Speed races home on  Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, DVD and On-Demand August 5th, 2014, from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. Based on the best-selling video game series, this action-packed movie drives non-stop excitement into your home in various home entertainment models, each tricked out with never-before-seen bonus features you won’t want to miss!

 

Buckle up with star Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”), Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Dakota Johnson and Michael Keaton in this high-speed tale about an underground driver (Paul) who sets off on a race for revenge against the wealthy ex-NASCAR driver (Cooper) who framed him for a crime he didn’t commit.  Delivering real speed, real danger and real action, this turbo-charged thriller explodes on screen on Blu-ray and Digital HD with spectacular high definition picture and sound!

 

Then, experience first-hand what it took to make this breakthrough action hit with a series of revealing featurettes. First, go behind the wheel for an up-close look at what it took to capture the movie’s intense car stunts on camera with “Capturing Speed: Making An Authentic Car Movie”; next, meet the Gilbert family, four generations of professional stuntmen, who turned the Mustang hero car’s astonishing “grasshopper” jump over four lanes of traffic into a family affair in “Ties that Bind”; then, experience the Need For Speed traveling road show as the movie films from one end of the country to the other in “The Circus is in Town”; finally, discover how the movie’s stunning soundscape helps put the audience in the driver’s seat by recording “car bys,” accelerations, donuts, skids—and the "gnarly" signature sound of the hero Mustang - in “The Sound Of Need For Speed.”

 

Additional must-own bonus features on Blu-ray include an audio commentary with director Scott Waugh and Aaron Paul; Monarch & Maverick outtakes featuring stars Michael Keaton and Scott Mescudi cutting loose; 4 deleted scenes with introductions by director Scott Waugh; trailers, and more!

ABOUT NEED FOR SPEED:

Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, DreamWorks Pictures’ Need for Speed captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting. An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and ‘70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, Need for Speed taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.

 

The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) — who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side — reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to a car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poot) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter.

 

Two years later and fresh out of prison, Tobey is set on revenge with plans to take down Dino in the high-stakes De Leon race — the Super Bowl of underground racing. To get there in time, Tobey must run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet, dodging cops coast-to-coast and dealing with fallout from a dangerous bounty Dino put on his car. With his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia as allies, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

Disney is doing the US theatrical and home video distribution -- wonder if this is a new thing for them to skimp on the 3D release.  Would be the second time they've done that this year (so far).

Ron -- do you have any contacts you could politely ask (if it's appropriate to do so) about the lack of a Blu-ray 3D release on this title?

 

I'm sure this isn't going to be the Best Picture winner this year, but regardless, Disney used to be among the best at putting out BD3D titles, and this is their second BD release this year where there's no 3D disc for what was released in theaters as a 3D movie.  Their sudden shift is puzzling.

Josh,

 

Don't take this as gospel.  An inside source is telling me that a 

3D version could very well be forthcoming.

Disney/Buena Vista distribution of "physical" Blu-ray 3D media releases for the U.S. are becoming a past memory.  If you want a region-A BD 3D of Need For Speed there will be one available in Brazil that will be released by Disney on July 23, and I've read rumors of another possible version for release in Mexico.

That's just an assumption. NEED FOR SPEED has no official announcement yet.  And FROZEN 3D is coming out in October, apparently

Report of a Disney/Buena Vista distribution official announcement for a USA  Need For Speed 2D version came on May  16, for an August 5th release. There has been no official announcement for a Frozen 3D release, only a Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment email to a fan of a "tentative" planned 3D version this fall" and a hopeful corroboration report from an internet site.

And that was subsequently removed from Amazon.

Interesting.  They still have Need For Speed visible @ Bestbuy but it now states "This item is no longer available".
