From Nicholas Sparks, best-selling author of “The Notebook”, comes the unforgettable love story
‘Dear John‘, available on Blu-ray ($34.95) and DVD ($28.95) May 25, 2010 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The beautifully acted and touching romantic drama, which stars Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried, debuted as the No. 1 movie with $30,468,614 in its opening weekend, knocking off Avatar after seven weekends in first place. The film was the second highest debut for a film opening Super Bowl weekend, just shy of Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in 2008 and is reportedly the best debut for a film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel.
‘Dear John‘ is a story of destiny that pushes a young soldier, John Tyree and an idealistic college student, Savannah Curtis together. When war tears them apart, will their endless stream of love letters be enough to keep them united?
Over the next seven tumultuous years, the couple is separated by John’s increasingly dangerous deployments. While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a continuous stream of love letters overseas—correspondence that eventually triggers fateful consequences.
After earning well over $90 million at the U.S. and foreign box offices, this hit is ready to win viewers hearts like never before on Blu-ray and DVD, featuring stunning picture and sound clarity and bonus features fans will love.
This new romantic classic will contain hours of revealing bonus features, including an alternate ending that I loved when I saw the movie prior to it’s release in January, alternate and deleted scenes, outtakes and the following featurettes:
- “A Conversation with Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried and Lasse Lasse Hallström”
- “Transforming Charleston”
- “Military in Movies: Dear John’s Military Advisors”
- “Mr. Tyree, The Mule, and Benny Dietz”
- “The Story of Braeden Reed”
Also, exclusively available on the Blu-ray edition is the BD-Live enabled movieIQ, which lets viewers access live trivia information about the cast, crew, music and production – all while watching the movie.
Make sure you pick up your copy of ‘Dear John‘ when it hits a store near you on May 25th. As always, we’ll have some great contests for fans right here at CTU prior to the DVD and Blu-ray release, so stay tuned!!!
