New Release: Swingers Blu-ray

Swingers movie scene

Jon Favreau (l.) and Vince Vaughn hit Vegas baby Vegas in Swingers.

Lionsgate premiered the long-overdue U.S. Blu-ray edition of the 1996 comedy movie Swingers, starring Jon Favreau (Couples Retreat) and Vince Vaughn (The Dilemma), on Aug. 23, 2011, for a list price of $14.99. That’s so money!

Written by Favreau and directed by Doug Liman (Fair Game), the movie about a New York dude (Favreau) in Los Angeles pursuing an acting and stand-up career as he tries to mend his broken heart and deal with a fast-talking buddy (Vaughn) is already considered a comedy classic. The pair’s exploits in Vegas in the early part of the film have already been co-opted more times than we can even count.

An earlier Blu-ray edition of Swingers was issued in Canada and is still available.

Bonus features on the U.S. Blu-ray include a director/screenwriter commentary, an illustrated action commentary with Favreau and Vaughn, a multi-part making-of documentary and other extras that all previously appeared on the Miramax’s 2002 DVD edition of the film.
