As one of the most revered coming of age teen dramas in quite some time, movie lovers will have their chance to embrace The Spectacular Now in the comfort of their own homes when it releases on Blu-ray and DVD January 14. Comparatively, Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley make such a dynamic duo on screen that it puts many veteran actors to shame. Fans of The Spectacular Now can find multiple little featurettes from behind the scenes that you can check out after the jump.
It’s no surprise Teller and Woodley won the Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting at Sundance 2013. Based on their beautiful chemistry throughout the film, along with their raw talent to portray such angsty teenagers, they put Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to shame a thousand times over.
I’d really like to see in these featurettes listed below screen tests of the two young stars. I’d really be interested to see how their chemistry worked before they started filming. Teller and Woodley work so well together that it just seems to real to believe. Give them all the casting awards. All of them.
The Spectacular Now Blu-ray and DVD special features includes:
- Deleted Scenes
- Audio Commentary with the Director
- “Now to Then: Making The Spectacular Now” four part featurette:
- “Inception” – Defying Hollywood
- “Cast” – Finding the Voice
- “Aesthetic” – Authenticity Counts
- “Real” – Bringing It All to Life

With sly humor and an intensity of feeling, The Spectacular Now creates a vivid, three-dimensional portrait of youth confronting the funny, thrilling and perilous business of modern love and adulthood. Based on the Tim Tharp book, this is the tale of Sutter Keely (Teller), a high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with “the good girl” Aimee Finecky (Woodley). What starts as an unlikely romance, becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth – one that doesn’t look for tidy truths.
The Spectacular Now releases on home video Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD January 14.
