Film is a continuation of cult TV series
Get ready to go back to the Goat House, “Blue Mountain State” fans.
Lionsgate announced Friday that it has set the digital release date for the crowdfunded “Blue Mountain State” movie for Feb. 2, 2016.
The film reprises the antics of fictional Blue Mountain State University and its Mountain Goats football team, set in the madcap, over-the-top world of football, sex, binge drinking and wild partying. Television series creators Eric Falconer and Romanski reunite the original cast starring Alan Ritchson, Romanski, Darin Brooks, James Cade and Frankie Shaw.
In the movie, Thad Castle (Ritchson) recently has signed a multi million-dollar NFL contract, and his teammates and college life seem like a distant memory. However, when a new school dean threatens to clean up the BMS image by auctioning off the infamous Goat House, Alex, Sammy and the boys must find a way to convince Thad to get involved.
Despite his new fortune and fame, there is one small requirement before Thad agrees to save the day: The Goat House must throw the biggest, most epic booze-and-sloot fest in BMS history, known as Thadland.
In addition to the movie’s availability via traditional digital HD and VOD retailers, Lionsgate will offer several specially curated movie editions. The special editions, designed in close collaboration with the creators, showcase a variety of features ranging from video extras to specialty items such as a Blue Mountain State University “ID Card” and opportunities to have a recorded personalized phone message, social video or ringtone from a cast member.
