Apple is about to have another first for the company.
Later next month, Apple will have its first Apple Original film released on Blu-ray. This film is “On The Rocks” that stars Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, as well as Marlon Wayans.
This is how Apple has described the movie:
“A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city – drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots…Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship.”
The film is currently up for pre-order on Amazon for $17.99 and will be released on Tuesday, October 26. You can watch the trailer for the film below.
This is not the first time Apple has looked into releasing content in physical form, with “Defending Jacob” being a recent release that was released on both Blu-ray and DVD.
“Long Way Up” is another Apple TV+ original that is expected to be released sometime this year too.
Apple TV+ is available for $4.99 a month through the Apple TV app that is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, select Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, XBOX One, XBOX Series X&S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
