The Breakfast Club stars Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson discuss the term "Brat Pack" that has followed them for the past 30 years in an exclusive preview for The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition, which debuts on Blu-ray today, March 10. David Blum, who coined "The Brat Pack" term in a New York Magazine cover story, revealed that he included several actors between the ages of 21 and 30 and who were successful in Hollywood, although the term has largely come to identify cast members from both The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. Little did any of the "Brat Packers" know that the term would be prevalent to this day, as Judd Nelson reveals that they weren't the "rascallions" others may have perceived them to be.
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.
