New York, NY(August 30, 2012) - Image Entertainment and Drafthouse Films prepares you for ludicrous scandals and the epitome of ridiculous behavior with Klown. Based on the wildly popular six-season Danish TV show of the same name, this internationally acclaimed and award-winning saga of debauchery comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on September 25th via Image Entertainment. SRP is $29.97 for the Blu-ray(TM) and $27.97 for the DVD. Pre-book is August 28th. Digital download outlets include iTunes, Amazon, Distrify, Vudu, Xbox and other digital partners. On-Demand outlets include AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cox and DirecTV.
Klown follows two wildly inappropriate friends (played by celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Caspar Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside plowing through social taboos, unspeakable debaucheries and absurd sexual encounters. Misguided Frank kidnaps the nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, while the sex-driven Caspar is determined to visit a world-renowned brothel - only a couple of the reasons indieWIRE proclaims the movie "raunchy, fearless and awesome!"
The remake rights for this thoroughly unique property were recently acquired by actor-comic Danny McBride (Your Highness, Eastbound & Down) and director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School), but here's your chance to see the unhinged and thoroughly envelope-smashing original!
U.S. distributor Drafthouse Films is also selling Klown through its webstore (klownthemovie.com) in unique special edition packages, including one with reversible sleeve art by famed artist and graphic designer Alan Hynes, and the limited edition Klown "Underwear Set," which contains a Fruit of the Loom muscle shirt and matching underpants for those who want to really get into the dubious behavior of the film's hapless heroes.
The Blu-ray and DVD packages also include a digital download of the film and over two hours of bonus material. Also on the site, fans will be able to download an episode of the original Klown television series written by Lars von Trier (Antichrist, Melancholia, the upcoming Nymphomaniac).
Additionally, at the Drafthouse Films webstore movie fans can join the "Drafthouse Alliance" program, which for a flat fee will bring the company's next 10 releases right to their door.
