Culver City, Calif. (November 5, 2012) – THE WORDS, a thought-provoking romantic thriller from CBS Films and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD December 24th – both with UltraViolet™. Bradley Cooper (Limitless) stars as Rory Jansen, a young literary hopeful who risks it all to become a success. While on their honeymoon in Paris, Rory and his wife Dora, played by Zoë Saldana (Colombiana), step inside an antique shop where they find a briefcase that will later reveal the key to the career he has always desired... but the find comes with a steep price. This dramatic story within a story exposes the strong effects that life’s choices can have on us all. The film also stars Jeremy Irons (Margin Call), Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow), Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian), and Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy).
The Blu-ray and DVD both come with the Extended Special Edition of the film, featuring an alternate ending, as well as two featurettes: “Unabridged: A Look Behind the Scenes of The Words” provides an in-depth look at the making of the film; while “A Gentleman’s Agreement” gives a look at how Cooper and the filmmakers found THE WORDS. Exclusive to the Blu-ray are two additional featurettes: “Clay
and Daniella” focuses on the characters of Quaid and Wilde; and “The Young Man and Celia” highlights the characters of Ben Barnes and Nora Arnezeder.
“There’s more than one way to take a life…” and there are no truer words. Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper) has achieved his every goal: a loving wife, critical success and a best-selling novel. The only problem, he’s
risked everything he values because his success is not entirely his own. Now, as his conscience starts to haunt him and his past wrongs are revealed, he uncovers the steep price that must be paid, throwing his whole world and relationship into jeopardy. The consequences may just affect the legacy of himself as well as those closest to him. Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes and Zoë Saldana star in this
romantic thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end.
THE WORDS is written and directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal (both TRON: Legacy), graduates of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, produced by Jim Young (Lovelace), Tatiana Kelly (Wristcutters: A
Love Story), and Michael Benaroya (Lawless), and executive produced by Cassian Elwes (The Paperboy), Laura Rister (Lawless), Lisa Wilson and Bradley Cooper.
