The Blues Brothers Are On A Mission From God And Will Appear on Blu-ray July 26!

Comedy icons John Belushi (National Lampoon’s Animal House, “Saturday Night Live”) and Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters, “Saturday Night Live”) star in the outrageously funny musical comedy The Blues Brothers. After the release of Jake Blues (Belushi) from prison, he and brother Elwood (Aykroyd) take their blues band back on the road in an attempt to raise money for the orphanage where they were raised. Havoc ensues as the brothers seek redemption on their “mission from God.” This soul-stirring comedy classic features unforgettable musical performances by blues legends Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Cab Calloway.
