This is not your father's Footlose - and thats OK! With an overwhelmingly infectious spirit of fun and excitement, you'll be hard pressed not to be thoroughly entertained by this modern retelling of the Kevin Bacon "classic."
Called “fantastic” (People), “exciting” (Ain’t It Cool) and “high energy fun” (US Weekly), the contemporary re-telling of the beloved classic FOOTLOOSE debuts in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack with UltraViolet™ and a Digital Copy, On Demand and for Digital Download on March 6, 2012 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Boasting high-energy dancing, an inspirational story and an impressive cast of rising stars and screen veterans, writer/director Craig Brewer’s (Hustle & Flow) modern update thrilled audiences of all ages with its combination of youthful spirit and infectious fun.
Newcomer Kenny Wormald stars as Ren MacCormack, a city kid transplanted to the small town of Bomont where dancing has been outlawed. Ren goes up against Bomont’s reverend (Dennis Quaid) to challenge the ban with the help of the minister’s daughter (Julianne Hough, “Dancing with the Stars”) and in the process reminds the entire town that dancing is more than youthful exuberance—it’s a celebration of life. The film also stars Andie MacDowell (Beauty Shop) and Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole) and features an outstanding soundtrack with musical artists including Blake Shelton, Big & Rich, Ella Mae Bowen and more.
The FOOTLOOSE Blu-ray/DVD combo pack includes over an hour of bonus features such as deleted scenes, a look back at the original film, featurettes on the stars and their dancing, commentary by Brewer, music videos and more. In addition, all Blu-ray and DVD releases available for purchase will be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies. With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them – safely and securely – to a variety of devices.
