Up In The Air Lands On DVD March 9th

I wonder if Ryan Bingham’s rules for getting through airport security apply to store lines as well. If so, you’re going to want to keep this in mind when Up In The Air arrives on DVD and Blu-ray March 9th: “Never get behind old people. Their bodies are littered with hidden metal and they never seem to appreciate how little time they have left. Bingo, Asians. They pack light, travel efficiently, and they have a thing for slip-on shoes. Gotta love 'em.”

Ryan (George Clooney) likes to keep busy, so busy in fact that he never goes home. He works for a corporate downsizing company, traveling the country and firing employees for bosses who don’t have the nerve to take care of business themselves. His airtight routine is disturbed when a determined young coworker (Anna Kendrick) suggests a new method of firing via teleconference that will ultimately do away with in-person jobs and therefore Ryan’s sky-high haven.

If you're a movie fan, you don’t take a pass on picking up a film that’s got six Academy Award nominations.. Up In The Air is light-hearted yet profound, an all-around immensely enjoyable film. You won’t be able to get enough of it and Paramount Home Entertainment knows it. According to the press release, the DVD and BD come with a massive special features menu. On top of that, they’re both recession proof. The DVD edition costs just $19.99 and the BD only $29.99.
