OMFG! "LOL" arrives on DVD/Bluray on 7/31
Even though it just hit theaters four days ago Lionsgate has made public their plans — via an early alert to retailers — to bring the 2012 film “LOL” starring Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore to Blu-ray Disc on July 31st. This literally is the quickest I’ve ever seen a title get announced (even if it is just a retailer alert). A lot of this surely has to do with the film officially “bombing” at the box office in its limited theatrical run where it only was released to 105 theaters and earned $46,500 on opening weekend (see HERE*). If you think I’m just making this up the film is already scheduled for home video release, with nothing to back it up with, go see for yourself over at Walmart.com** where it already is listed. There’s no information yet regarding tech specs, bonus materials or even a pre-order listing over at Amazon but stay tuned.
Full Press Release
Teen sensation Miley Cyrus (The Last Song) stars in LOL, a story that perfectly captures growing up in today's digital world, arriving on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand July 31 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Golden Globe® nominee Demi Moore (Ghost), Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga), Douglas Booth (upcoming Romeo and Juliet), Adam Sevani (upcoming Step Up Revolution), Golden Globe® nominee Thomas Jane (HBO's "Hung") and Jay Hernandez (Crazy/Beautiful) also star in the romance, based on the hugely popular 2008 French film LOL (Laughing Out Loud)®.
In a world connected by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, Cyrus stars as a teen girl navigating her way through the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship, while dodging her protective mother (Moore), in the fresh coming-of-age comedy LOL. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD release includes special bonus materials such as behind-the-scenes featurettes and audio commentary with the director and cast. The LOL Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
Directed by Lisa Azuelos, who also wrote and directed the original film, from a screenplay by Azuelos & Kamir Aïnouz, LOL begins as Lola (Cyrus), (or "Lol," as her friends call her), starts a new year of high school. Lol works to find the right balance between family, school, friends and romance, all with a worried mother (Moore) also on her case. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol's world is soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend, Kyle (Booth), a musician in an up and coming rock band, could possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence, self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook "status" is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort.
