Powder Blue (aka the Jessica Biel Stripper Movie) Goes Straight to DVD

Remember “Powder Blue”? The indie drama where Jessica Biel plays a single mom and a stripper who, in a bit of incredible realism, actually strips? If you were one of the legion of men hoping to see Jessica Biel’s naughty bits on the big screen, you’ll have to keep on waiting, because word is Image Entertainment is dumping the film straight to DVD on May 5.

High-Def Digest has your Jessica Biel stripper flick news:

Dubbed the “Jessica Biel stripper flick” by some (which alone should send video rentals through the roof), ‘Powder Blue’ apparently is bypassing a theatrical release to premiere on video May 5, day-and-date on Blu-ray and DVD.

Tech specs include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Extras include but a single audio commentary with director Timothy Linh-Bui

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $35.98.

You know, this is probably for the best. Do you really want to take your girlfriend to go see this thing? Or worst, have to sit in a dark room full of strangers as you try desperately not to catch anyone’s eye? It’s just awkward. Watching it at home on DVD, on the other hand, not so much.

And just to remind you what all the hoopla was about, here’s the trailer for “Powder Blue”, starring Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker, and Jessica Biel. Timothy Linh Bui (“Three Seasons”) directs.
