Small Apartments Will Hit Blu-ray And DVD In February

Rebel Wilson had a hell of a 2012, popping up in films as varied as Bachelorette and Ice Age: Continental Drift, as well as What To Expect When You're Expecting and Pitch Perfect. She’ll ring in the New Year with the indie flick Small Apartments, which will be hitting theaters in limited release at the beginning of February and then will continue on to Blu-ray and DVD on February 19.

Based on a book by director Chris Millis, Small Apartments premiered at the 2012 SXSW film festival. Wilson appears in the film as a renter dating Johnny Knoxville. The couple lives in the same apartment building as protagonist Matt Lucas (whom Wilson also lived with in 2011's Bridesmaids), who stars in the film as a dude dealing with the problem of a dead landlord. Additionally, Billy Crystal, James Marsden, Juno Temple, Dolph Lundgren, and James Caan appear in the flick.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has put together the Blu-ray and DVD release, and as the flick was a low budget affair, fans of the film shouldn’t expect a set that is chock full of bonus features. Buyers will get two featurettes. The first will apparently explain how to build a gravity bong from the comfort of your own home and the second featurette will focus on what went on behind the scenes during shooting. Since neither featurette seems like a must-watch, this may be one to catch in theaters, if you live in a big enough market or one that prizes niche films, or maybe skip entirely, depending on preference. You can check out the cover art for Small Apartments, in all of its wild hair and bad makeup glory, below.
