UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sibling rivalry sinks to a hilarious new low as a humiliating video goes viral in Frankie Go Boom, an outrageous and delightfully edgy comedy available on Blu-ray™ and DVD on May 14, 2013 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. For decades, amateur filmmaker Bruce (Chris O'Dowd, This is 40, Bridesmaids) has tortured his awkward brother Frank (Charlie Hunnam, "Sons of Anarchy," Children of Men) with a series of embarrassing videos posted on the Internet. Bruce finally goes too far when he uploads a video of a disastrous one-night stand involving the inebriated daughter of a loose-cannon ex-movie star. To try to undo the damage, the brothers enlist the help of Bruce's transsexual computer-hacker buddy played by Ron Perlman ("Sons of Anarchy," Hellboy) in one of the year's most hysterically unexpected performances.

Also starring Lizzy Caplan (127 Hours, Hot Tub Time Machine), Nora Dunn ("Entourage," "Saturday Night Live"), Sam Anderson ("Lost," "ER") and Chris Noth ("The Good Wife," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent").

Frankie Go Boom will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD.  Blu-ray™ disc unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring perfect hi-def picture and perfect hi-def sound.
