Fast-Paced Action Comedy Hits the Streets on Blu-ray™ for the First Time Ever
May 17, 2011 with Nearly an Hour of Special Features

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – The heat is on in the outrageously funny and action-packed comedy BEVERLY HILLS COP, arriving on Blu-ray May 17, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.  Eddie Murphy stars as Axel Foley, a street smart Detroit cop tracking down his best friend’s killer in Beverly Hills.  Axel quickly learns that his wild style doesn’t fit in with the Beverly Hills Police Department, which assigns two officers (Judge Reinhold & John Ashton) to make sure things don’t get out of hand.  Dragging the stuffy detectives along for the ride, Axel smashes through a huge culture clash in his hilarious, high-speed pursuit of justice.  Featuring cameos by Paul Reiser, Bronson Pinchot and Damon Wayans, BEVERLY HILLS COP is an exhilarating, sidesplitting adventure.

The BEVERLY HILLS COP Blu-ray includes a look at the phenomenon that the movie started when it was released in 1984, a glimpse inside the casting process, a featurette on the music, an exploration of locations from the film and commentary by director Martin Brest.

    Disturbing the peace? I got thrown out of a window! What’s the f*cking charge for getting pushed out of a moving car, huh? Jaywalking? This is bullsh*t!

    Thank you, Sean! I’m glad that someone quoted that scene. It’s hysterical!

    I can’t wait to hear the synthesized music in lossless sound!

    The first one is one of my all time favorite comedies. I like the second one too but the first one can’t be beat. I hope they do a good job on the blu-ray!

    And Sean, I know you must be a super fan of the third, because it has a George Lucas cameo. 😉

    I love this movie, the second one just as much. The third should have never been made.
