The tremendous Andy Kaufman biopic Man on the Moon starring Jim Carrey as the immortal genius comedian Andy Kaufman will be re-released on Blu-Ray on 2/22.

The film covers Kaufman's turn in the professional wrestling world with Jerry Lawler playing himself, Jim Ross announcing and the late, great Lance Russell appearing as a ring announcer.

Promotional material for the new release notes:

In this acclaimed biopic from director Miloš Forman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus), Jim Carrey (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) disappears into the role of the late Andy Kaufman—considered the most innovative, eccentric and enigmatic comic of his time. A master at manipulating audiences, Kaufman could generate belly laughs, stony silences, tears or brawls. Whether inviting the audience out for milk and cookies or challenging women to intergender wrestling matches, he specialized in creating performances so real that even his close friends were never sure where the truth lay. Also starring Danny DeVito (Get Shorty) as Kaufman’s manager, Courtney Love (The People vs. Larry Flynt) as the woman Andy falls in love with and Paul Giamatti (Sideways) as his best friend. You’ll stand up and cheer for Carrey’s hilariously uncanny performance that “may be a better Andy Kaufman than Andy Kaufman” (Newsweek).

The Blu-Ray is a new 2K Master that was approved and color graded by the film's Cinematographer Anastas Michos
