WRITTEN and directed by John Hughes, the celebrated comedy Planes, Trains and Automobiles makes an on-time arrival for its 30th anniversary on Blu-ray Combo Pack with a Digital HD copy and on DVD on Oct. 10, from Paramount Home Media Distribution.

Filled with funny situations and a generous helping of warmth, the film also features appearances by Michael McKean, Edie McClurg and Kevin Bacon.

The Planes, Trains and Automobiles Blu-ray features an in-depth retrospective on John Hughes’ career that includes interviews with those who worked with him and explores his indelible impact as a writer and filmmaker. Additional features include “Getting There is Half the Fun: The Story of Planes, Trains And Automobiles,” “John Hughes For Adults,” a tribute to John Candy, and a deleted scene. — Front Row Features
