Lionsgate Nov. 8 will release the 1988 comedy Earth Girls Are Easy on Blu-ray through its Vestron Video Collector’s Series specialty label.
The film stars Geena Davis as a dimwitted valley-girl manicurist whose sunbathing session is interrupted when a spaceship crashes into her pool. She soon befriends the occupants of the vessel — three furry aliens played by Jeff Goldblum, Damon Wayans and Jim Carrey — and gives them a makeover to appear human. With their new disguises, the extraterrestrial trio embarks on a wild weekend filled with partying, police pursuits and interplanetary love.
Davis and Goldblum, who were married at the time, had previously starred together in The Fly. The film also represents early roles for Carrey and Wayans, who later appear together on the sketch comedy series “In Living Color” starting in 1990.
Extras include an audio commentary with co-writer Julie Brown, who also appears in the film; interviews with Brown, director Julien Temple, director of photography Oliver Stapleton, production designer Dennis Gassner and make-up supervisor Robert Clark; the featurette “Earth Girls Karaoke!”; a vintage interview with the late actor Charles Rocket; a vintage premiere night promo; behind-the-scenes footage; deleted scenes and outtakes; promotional material such as trailers, TV spots and radio spots; and still and storyboard galleries.
The Blu-ray also includes a code for a digital copy of the film.
