, , Leave a comment


Originally released on 25th November, 1987, Planes, Trains And Automobiles celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. Starring comedy greats Steve Martin and John Candy, the uproarious film has become a beloved holiday classic. Now Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment in November will give fans a chance to upgrade the classic film to 4K Ultra HD™.

Steve Martin and John Candy star in this hysterical tale of travel gone awry. Neal Page (Martin) is an uptight ad exec trying to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family. When rerouted to Wichita, Neal reluctantly partners with Del Griffith (Candy), an obnoxious yet loveable salesman. Together, they embark on a cross-country adventure filled with outrageously funny situations and a generous helping of warmth.

Newly remastered on 4K Ultra HD™ with Dolby Vision™ and HDR-10, the film looks better than ever. It comes packaged with a bonus “LOST LUGGAGE” Blu-ray™ Disc containing over an hour of never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes. All recently discovered in the archives of writer, producer and director John Hughes. The newly uncovered footage offers a unique glimpse into the filmmaking and editing process and features even more hilarious moments between Steve Martin and John Candy.

Here’s a reminder of the brilliant film in the shape of it’ original Trailer
