Opportunity rocks! School of Rock meets Spinal Tap in the “flat-out funny” (Richard Roeper, “At The Movies”) comedy for the rock star in everyone as THE ROCKER takes center stage on DVD and Blu-ray Disc (BD) January 27th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Rainn Wilson (“The Office,” Juno) drums up huge laughs in “the surprise comedy of the summer” (Ben Lyons, E!) as Robert “Fish” Fishman, a man living in a rock ‘n’ roll dream…but waking up in a midlife crisis! After being kicked out of ‘80s metal band Vesuvius just before they hit superstardom, “Fish” spends the next 20 years in relative obscurity, stuck in a humdrum office work life, constantly daydreaming of what might have been. When his teenage nephew’s band is in desperate need for a new drummer to play the Senior Prom, he reluctantly steps in and picks up right where he left off. With a second chance to re-live his rock fantasies, “Fish” and his new band mates quickly skyrocket to fame…and rock will never be the same.
“A fun-filled musical romp that also doubles as a poignant coming-of-age story” (Clint O’Connor, Cleveland Plain Dealer) from director Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty), THE ROCKER features up-and- coming young talents Emma Stone (Superbad), Josh Gad (21) and pop star Teddy Geiger, plus hilarious supporting performances from Christina Applegate (“Samantha Who?”), Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”), Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Jane Lynch (Best In Show), Howard Hesseman (“WKRP In Cincinnati”), Bradley Cooper (“Alias”) and “Saturday Night Live” veterans Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen.
Get a front row seat to the ultimate performance with THE ROCKER Born To Rock Edition fully-loaded DVD and BD highlighted by over 90 minutes of chart-topping special features including several “backstage pass” behind-the-scenes featurettes, an interview with former Beatles drummer Pete Best, cast/director commentaries, deleted scenes, gag reels, podcasts and more; plus both feature a Digital Copy of the film for portable media players. THE ROCKER Born To Rock Edition DVD will be available for a suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada and on Blu-ray Disc for $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada.
Twenty years after being kicked out of his nearly famous ’80s hair band, Robert “Fish” Fishman (Wilson)
finds himself trapped in a dead-end office job and living with his sister’s family. But when opportunity rocks, Fish gets a hilarious second chance at stardom, and without missing a beat, the desperate drummer vows to reclaim the rock-god throne he always thought he deserved!
