"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

Arrives On Blu-rayTM & DVD on August 2 from Lionsgate

SANTA MONICA, CA (June 2, 2016) – Golden Globe® winner Colin Farrell (In Bruges) and Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz (Best Supporting Actress, The Constant Gardener, 2005) star in the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize winner The Lobster, arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on August 2 from Lionsgate. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the director behind the Academy Award®-nominated Dogtooth (Best Foreign Language Film, 2010), this provocative, edgy, and wickedly hilarious film is a story about love, relationships, and societal conformity. Universally loved by critics and audiences alike, The Lobster was a festival favorite when it was released theatrically from A24 and is Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh.

In this highly imaginative, delightfully absurdist comedy, Colin Farrell stars as David, a man who has just been dumped by his wife.  To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods.  David is kept at the mysterious HOTEL while he searches for a new partner, and after several romantic misadventures, decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world. He ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as The Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there, David meets an enigmatic stranger (Rachel Weisz) who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him.

The Blu-ray and DVD releases both include an all-new featurette, “The Fabric of Attraction: Concocting The Lobster,” taking viewers behind the scenes of the film. The Lobster will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
