Preview- Animal House (Special Edition DVD)

This hilarious special edition of the movie that made food fights an art form, and John Belushi a star, features exclusive bonus content developed and directed by legendary filmmaker John Landis and co-producer Marty Simmons.

John Landis directed some of the most popular film comedies of all time. His films include The Blues Brothers, Trading Places, Spies Like Us, Three Amigos and An American Werewolf in London. He also wrote and directed Michael Jackson’s groundbreaking multi-award-winning music video Thriller which changed MTV and the concept of music videos.

Animal House is one of the most profitable movies of all time. Filmed for $2.8 million dollars it made an estimated gross of more than $141 million:

“This raunchy, screwball spoof about college life in the 1960’s sees Bhuto (John Belushi), Otter (Tim Matheson), Pinto (Tom Hulce) and Flounder (Stephen Furst) lead the way with their outrageous behaviour in the ultimate campus comedy!”

Considered one of the greatest comedy films ever made, in 2001 the United States Library of Congress deemed National Lampoons’ Animal House  “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

National Lampoon was a ground-breaking American humour magazine which ran from 1970 – 1998. It started out as a spinoff from the Harvard Lampoon. Many members of the creative staff subsequently went on to contribute creatively to successful media of all types. The script of Animal House had it’s origins in a series of short stories that had previously been published in the magazine. The enormous profit made from Animal House meant that for the next two decades the title “National Lampoon” applied to a movie was considered a valuable selling point in itself.

Donald Sutherland took an upfront payment of $75,000 for his three days work on the film as he had no confidence in it’s potential. Had he taken the gross percentage he was offered he would have made an additional $3-4 million.

DVD Extras:  “The Year Book” – An Animal House Reunion; Production Notes; Cast and Filmmaker’s, Theatrical Trailer.
