Paramount adds a dash of Vanilla Sky

Fresh off his success from his Oscar nominated film “Almost Famous”, director Cameron Crowe dove into the remake of the Spanish film “Open Your Eyes” that became the thriller “Vanilla Sky.” That version, which stars Tom Cruise, will come to DVD this spring from Paramount Home Entertainment.

David Aames appears to lead a charmed life. Handsome, wealthy and charismatic, the young New York City publishing executive’s freewheeling existence is enchanting, yet he seems to be missing something. Then, in one night David meets Sofia, the girl of his dreams, but loses her by making a small mistake. Thrust unexpectedly onto a roller-coaster ride of romance, comedy, suspicion, love, sex and dreams, David finds himself on a mind-bending search for his soul and discovers the precious, ephemeral nature of true love.

Put on disc with the traditional Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and anamorphic widescreen transfer, “Vanilla Sky” comes with an audio commentary by director Cameron Crowe, composer Nancy Wilson and actor Tom Cruise, the featurettes Making Of “Prelude to a Dream” and “Hitting It Hard”; music videos for “Afrika Shox” by Leftfield/ Afrika Bambaataa, a theatrical trailer, production stills and an audio introduction by Neal Preston.

“Vanilla Sky” will touch down on May 21st with a suggested retail price of $29.99.
