Universal Announces Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax for 3D Blu-Ray In August


Universal has announced Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, starring Danny DeVito, Zac Efron and Ed Helms, for Blu-Ray and Blu-Ray 3D in August.

Another year, another Dr. Seuss adaptation for the big screen. This time Universal Studios tackled The Lorax, attracting the voices of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Rob Riggle and Ed Helms. The film was well-received at the box office and with most critics.

Our very own Billy Tatum had this to say about the film in his review:

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an entertaining and cautionary tale that stays true to the spirit of the good doctor.
