This Monday The Dude will return to the small screen when the Coen Brother’s cult classic comedy The Big Lebowski is released in glorious Blu-ray for the first time. A few days ago the movies cast Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, John Turturro and Julianne Moore all reunited one more time walking the 30 metre long Persian rug at The Hammerstein in New York on Tuesday 16 August 2011 for the worldwide launch event celebrating the debut Blu-rayTM release of The Big Lebowski.
Universal partnered with the Lebowski Fest New York and delivered the ultimate Lebowski experience, much to the sheer excitement of the 1500 devoted Achievers who squeezed into the venue to pay homage to their heroes.
Here’s what the stars had to say about their experiences making the film:
I loved the experience of making it, but just as a movie on its own it’s pretty damn spectacular. – The Dude himself, Jeff Bridges.
It was great being on set everyday with John and Jeff and with the guys, I mean I love Joel and Ethan and I just think they are both wonderful directors. They are the greatest audience for an actor, because you often hear them laughing off camera. – Theodore Donald ‘Donny’ Kerabatsos, Steve Buscemi
You’d walk down the street and people would say, “Hey you’re in my favourite movie, The Big Lebowski” and they would say they had seen it 5 times, 10 times, 20 times. – Maude Lebowski, Julianne Moore
This acclaimed comedy comes to Blu-ray TM newly re-mastered in high definition for the first time and presents longtime fans and first-time viewers with the ultimate Lebowski experience. It features an all-new 28-page companion book featuring an exclusive interview with Jeff Dowd – the real-life inspiration for The Dude – Jeff Bridges’ personal on-set photography, a film timeline and trivia, plus a digital copy version of the film that can be viewed anywhere at any time.
