BURBANK, Calif., May 11, 2007 – “A lot can happen on the road to nowhere,” especially when four middle-aged
guys who wanna shake up their suburban lives are at the wheel. So be sure to reserve your laughs for the August 14th DVD and Blu-ray disc release of Wild Hogs from Touchstone Home Entertainment.
The star-studded cast of this hit comedy includes Tim Allen (“Doug”), John Travolta (“Woody”), Martin Lawrence (“Bobby”) and William H. Macy (“Dudley”) as four suburban couch jockeys who suffer from mid-life crises and take motorcycles to the American asphalt expecting nothing but fun and adventure. But being an easy rider isn’t so easy, especially after a chance encounter with the real-life Del Fuegos biker gang proves just how lame and tame the Hogs really are.
Packaged with both the DVD and Blu-ray Disc release is a Harley Davidson Sweepstakes insert that gives couch jockeys a chance to win a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The Wild Hogs DVD and Blu-ray Disc have a topped-off tank full of bonus features for the armchair biker including “Bikes, Brawls and Burning Bars: The Making of Wild Hogs,” a making-of featurette led by director Walt Becker and featuring interviews with the superstar cast. The Wild Hogs alternate ending shows the originally planned final scenes with a character the gang never wanted to see again. Additional features include deleted scenes, an easter egg, outtakes and an audio commentary with Walt Becker and writer Adam Copeland.
