Paramount announces Popeye 40th Anniversary Blu-ray

When I was a kid there was one movie I watched numerous times and no lie made my mother cancel cable because they played it all the time. That film was the 1980 Robert Altman film Popeye. The famed cartoon was brought to life from a screenwriter Jule Feiffer and features the first big screen appearance of the late great Robin Williams along with Shelley Duvall, Ray Walston, Paul Dooley, and Paul L. Smith.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this strange live action adaptation is getting the Blu-ray treatment that includes a Digital copy of the film, along with nearly 30 minutes of all-new bonus content featuring excerpts from one of Robin Williams’ final interviews, an interview with director Robert Altman from 2014, as well as a newly conducted interview with Stephen Altman, trailer and featurettes taking you behind bringing this cartoon to the real world.

Celebrate the world’s most famous sailor man and grab your copy of Popeye 40th Anniversary when it hits Blu-ray for the first time on December 1, 2020.
