CELEBRATE THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY WITH "AIRPLANE!" ON BLU-RAY™

Surely It Hasn’t Been 40 Years Since Airplane! Premiered?

(It has. And don’t call me Shirley)



Originally released in July of 1980, AIRPLANE! was a major hit and became a pop culture touchstone. Voted “one of the 10 funniest movies ever made” by the American Film Institute, the film continues to be widely referenced and quoted 40 years after its theatrical debut.

AIRPLANE! is available now on Blu-ray from Paramount Home Entertainment.




Robert Hays stars as an ex-fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning. The all-star cast also includes Julie Hagerty, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The outrageous comedy spoof skewers airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials…and everything else in its path.
