Ryan Reynolds is currently basking in the love of millions of fanboys around the world for taking on the role of Deadpool in an R-rated standalone movie that looks all kinds of awesome. But one of the actor’s most sensational performances hasn’t attracted nearly as much attention – in The Voices, on Blu-Ray this week, he plays a likable Everyman who is cajoled by his talking cat into becoming a serial killer. It’s an unusual part for the actor, but he absolutely kills it.

The Voices streets on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD this week.
Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick And Jacki Weaver Star In The Dark Comedy On Blu-Ray™, DVD And Digital HD April 7th From Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Ryan Reynolds (upcoming Mississippi Grind, The Proposal) plays a simple, likeable guy trying to do the right thing with the help of his talking pets – but accidentally winds up as a serial killer in the black comedy, The Voices, arriving on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD April 7th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available via On Demand. Directed by Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) and written by Michael R. Perry (Paranormal Activity 2), the “meticulously crafted genre-bending film” (Indiewire) also stars Gemma Arterton (Runner, Runner, Quantum of Solace), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Into The Woods) and Oscar® nominee Jacki Weaver (Best Supporting Actress, Silver Linings Playbook, 2012). The Voices was a favorite at the Sundance Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014.
Jerry (Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist (Weaver), he pursues his office crush (Arterton). However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path.
The Voices bonus materials include deleted and extended scenes, “making of” featurettes, a VFX behind-the-scenes look and a comparison showreel, animatics, a sketch gallery and a recording session with Ryan Reynolds as he creates the voices of “Bosco” and “Mr. Whiskers.” The Voices Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
