Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

"Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" Web Series - Blu-Ray - Press Release

Saturday 17 April 2010, by Webmaster

’Dr. Horrible’ comes to Blu-ray

I’ve got some Horrible news for mad scientist fans—and you’re going to love it: Joss Whedon’s "Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog" is coming to Blu-ray on May 25.

The musical comedy stars Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, Natahn Fillion as his nemesis, Captain Hammer, and Felicia Day as the woman they love, Penny.

The set, which will retail for $19.95, will include the equally entertaining commentary track by cast and crew called ""Commentary! The Musical." I can’t wait to pick this up.

I’ve posted the press release below with all the details.

As the first web-series ever to be released on Blu-ray, the smash-hit sci-fi musical romp DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG Blu-ray edition arrives in stores on May 25th, 2010. From beloved creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse) and starring Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle), and Felicia Day (The Guild)—along with Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) as Moist—this game-changing sensation takes over a retailer near you from distributor New Video NYC.

Born during the Writers’ Strike in 2008 as a free streaming internet miniseries, DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG became an instant success, premiering on iTunes as the #1 downloaded TV season for 3 weeks running making it to the Top 10 of all TV shows. The soundtrack of such hit songs from the film as "My Freeze Ray" and "My Eyes" debuted at #1 in soundtracks on iTunes and made the Top 40 Album list on release. High schools have performed the piece as their spring musical and fans have created their own action figures.

Billy, A.K.A. Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris), is a budding supervillain whose plans for world domination continually go awry. His two goals: getting accepted into the Evil League of Evil, and working up the guts to speak to his laundromat crush Penny (Felicia Day). The only thing standing in his way is Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), Billy’s superhero archnemesis. With one big score, Billy could get into the E.L.E. and earn the respect of Penny, but only if he can keep her away from the dashing Captain Hammer...

Critics have joined the fans in hailing DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG. Variety declared it "a toe-tapping good time," and TV Guide insisted that "far from horrible, it’s terrific." Listed on over 10 Top Ten lists, it’s been named "One of the Top Inventions of 2008" (Time Magazine), took home an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Special Class-Short Format Live-Action Entertainment Program, won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Online Sensation and seven Streamy Awards for web television, and has been nominated for a 2009 Hugo Award. The final step in Dr. Horrible’s plan to "stop the world"—domination of Blu-ray shelves—is now at hand.
