Forgetting Sarah Marshall (US BD) in September - Art/Specs Updated

Universal Studios Home Video have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Forgetting Sarah Marshall on 30th September 2008 priced at $39.98 SRP. The latest comedy from the team behind 'Knocked Up' and 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' follows struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) who is dumped by his long-term girlfriend, TV star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), and goes into a downward spiral. After a clumsy attempt at becoming a lothario backfires, he almost loses his job when he has a nervous breakdown. In a last ditch effort to put the past behind him, Peter heads for the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu for a well-deserved holiday. Everything goes swimmingly until Sarah turns up at the exact same resort accompanied by her new boyfriend, the wildly successful rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand)...
