Rango saddles up and rides to Blu-ray on July 15th from Paramount Home Entertainment, and M&C’s finding a way to beat the summer heat by giving away three Rango Prize Packs – which include a Blu-ray edition of Rango, Water friendly tote, water gun, water balloons and more.
The incomparable Johnny Depp voices Rango, a chameleon living as an ordinary family pet that dreams of being a fearless hero and is challenged to become just that when he inadvertently becomes the sheriff of a lawless desert town called Dirt.
Depp reteams with director Gore Verbinski, the visionary behind the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, in this wildly original comedy which also features the voices of Isla Fisher (Horton Hears A Who!), Abigail Breslin (Kit Kittredge: An American Girl), Ned Beatty (Toy Story 3), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Harry Dean Stanton, (“Big Love”), Ray Winstone (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”).
The Rango Blu-ray/DVD Combo with Digital Copy features both the theatrical version of the film and an extended cut including a never-before-seen alternate ending, 10 uproarious deleted scenes, a two-part, in-depth exploration of the groundbreaking filmmaking process, a look at the real creatures of Dirt, an interactive field trip to Dirt and more.
The Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, Portuguese 5.1 Dolby Digital and English Audio Description and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles.
