The Game Plan (R1) in January

Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Game Plan on 22nd January 2008 priced at $29.99 SRP. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars in this family comedy as Joe Kingman, a pro football superstar who unexpectedly finds himself caring for a precocious young girl played by Madison Pettis. The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Joe’s workaholic agent and Rosalyn Sanchez as the little girl’s football averse dance teacher.

Extras include:

  • Drafting The Game Plan
    This behind-the-scenes featurette provides hilarious movie-making insights from director Andy Fickman as well as a look at what goes into the making of a successful action sequence. It focuses on the fine art of choreographing a realistic scene, the challenges that the actors and athletes endure and the unexpected injuries that The Rock sustained. Special attention is paid to the scene in which Joe Kingman falls victim to a career-ending hit—a scene that actually left one stuntman nearly unconscious. Plus, eight-year-old Madison Pettis, armed with her own DV camera, documents her personal experiences on the ballet set.

  • ESPN's SportsCenter DVD/Blu-ray Exclusive: The King in Search of a Ring
    Stuart Scott of ESPN hosts a look at fictional star quarterback Joe Kingman, a man who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “share.” The Rock stays in character for interviews that fill in the blanks in Joe’s back story. The cast and crew contribute their thoughts and deleted scenes serve as “archival footage” in an entertaining “biography” of the athlete.

  • ESPN's SportsCenter: The Rock Learns To Play QB
    ESPN’s Sean Salisbury interviews The Rock on how he learned to play quarterback for the movie.

  • Bloopers with Marv Albert
    Exclusive missed lines, blunders, bloopers, gags and more all set to the familiar narration of sportscaster Marv Albert.

  • Deleted Scenes
    An extended version of the uproarious ballet scene and much more, including optional intros by director Andy Fickman.

  • Peyton’s Makeover Madness
    In a set-top feature, help Peyton “redecorate” Joe Kingman’s apartment with fun virtual arts and crafts.
