Director John Hughes' 1985 classic The Breakfast Club celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year, and Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing the coming-of-age comedy back to theaters for just two nights only on Thursday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 31. Fans can visit BreakfastClub30.com for more information about what theaters will be participating in this event, where fans can see this classic fully restored in high-definition, along with a bonus featurette. Universal Studios Home Entertainment is also releasing a 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray on March 10, which includes a number of new special features. Take a look at the official press release below for more details, along with the artwork.
An all-time classic from one of the most influential writers and directors in Hollywood history comes to Blu-ray, including Digital HD with UltraViolet, and DVD when The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition debuts on March 10, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Also available on the same date is The John Hughes Yearbook Collection, a celebration of the acclaimed filmmaker's most memorable films, including The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Weird Science. The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition includes an all-new trivia track and all films come with an array of bonus features and extras that will remind viewers of Hughes' uncommon understanding of the trials and triumphs of young adulthood.
John Hughes created iconic portraits of 1980s teen life that helped define adolescence for an entire generation. His movies also introduced a new crop of young stars, including "Brat Pack" members Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy, in warm-hearted, coming-of-age comedies that remain a true testament to his filmmaking genius.
The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition commemorates the debut of Hughes' most beloved creation with an all-new, digitally remastered and fully restored version of the film Entertainment Weekly calls "the best high school movie of all time." At the beginning of a Saturday detention session, five teens are simply the Jock (Emilio Estevez), the Princess (Molly Ringwald), the Brain (Anthony Michael Hall), the Criminal (Judd Nelson) and the Basket Case (Ally Sheedy), but by afternoon they become closer than any of them could have imagined.
In addition to the home entertainment release, The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary celebration continues in theaters when the film is back on the big screen for two nights only, March 26 and March 31, 2015, presented by Fathom Events, BY Experience and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
