Spaceballs (US BD) in June

MGM Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Spaceballs on 16th June 2009. Written and directed by Mel Brooks who also stars in the film alongside John Candy, Rick Moranis, Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga and Joan Rivers, Spaceballs is a sci-fi fuelled satire that lampoons everything from Star Wars and Alien to Star Trek and Planet of the Apes. The film follows fearless – and clueless – space heroes Lone Starr (Pullman) and his man-dog hybrid, sidekick Barf (Candy) as they wage interstellar warfare to free Princess Vespa (Zuniga) from the evil clutches of Dark Helmet (Moranis).
