WARNER HOME VIDEO CELEBRATES THE GOONIES 25TH ANNIVERSARY ON NOVEMBER 2, 2010
WITH THE DEBUT OF THE GOONIES 25TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR’S EDITION ON BLU-RAY DISC TM AND DVD
ASTORIA, Ore., – The Goonies R Good Enuff! Relive the wild adventure when The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition debuts on Blu-rayTM and DVD November 2, 2010. Directed by Richard Donner (Superman, Lethal Weapon series, Ladyhawke), the beloved family adventure is presented by one of the most influential personalities in the history of film, Steven Spielberg (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan). Recipient of the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award, Spielberg won the Academy Award® for Best Director for Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998), as well as the Academy’s coveted Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award (1986). Three of Spielberg’s films (Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Jurassic Park) have broken box office records, each becoming the highest-grossing film made at the time, and The Goonies consistently performs year after year, with DVD unit sales totaling 5.5 million life-to date (source: Nielsen 4/30/10).
The Goonies stars Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Josh Brolin (Milk, W, No Country for Old Men, upcoming Jonah Hex), Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys franchise), Martha Plimpton (200 Cigarettes), Ke Huy-Quan (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) and Joe Pantoliano (Cats and Dogs franchise, The Matrix). Overflowing with a treasure chest of premium items that celebrate this cherished film, The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will include an exciting new board game, collectible storyboard prints, a 1985 souvenir magazine with captivating behind-the-scenes stories about the actual filming in Astoria, Oregon, including the production design that transformed Astoria into the “Goon Docks,” and a reprint of a 2009 article with updates of the entire cast, as well as producer Steven Spielberg and director Richard Donner. The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will debut on Blu-ray for $49.99 SRP and DVD for $39.92 SRP. Orders are due September 28, 2010.
The Goonies will also be available On Demand from cable and satellite providers, and for permanent download and digital rental through iTunes, Amazon Video On Demand, PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Zune Video Marketplace.
Written by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter series, Mrs. Doubtfire) from a story by executive producer Steven Spielberg, The Goonies was originally released in theaters on June 7, 1985. Donner produced with Harvey Bernhard (The Lost Boys) and Spielberg executive produced with Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy (Indiana Jones series, Back to the Future, Curious Case of Benjamin Button).
From the imagination of Steven Spielberg, The Goonies plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling surprise-around-every corner quest beyond their wildest dreams! Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys…and a mild mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.
