March is set to be a big month for Shout! Factory. The leading name in the home entertainment world, Shout! Factory has no fewer than seven major titles set to hit store shelves next month. Those titles include the likes of Quincy M.E. Season Eight, Maude: The Complete Series, and Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXII just to name a few. There are other big titles set to drop next month. These are just a few of them. One more of the big titles that will see the light of day next month–The Sure Thing 30th Anniversary Edition–will be released on Blu-ray March 24th.

One of the key romantic comedies of the 80s, The Sure Thing stars a then young John Cusack (Hot Tub Time Machine, Martian Child, Serendipity), Daphne Zuniga (Spaceballs, One Tree Hill, Melrose Place), Viveca Lindfors (Stargate, The Way We Were, The Adventures of Don Juan), and Nicollette Sheridan (Spy Hard, Desperate Housewives, Knots Landing). The story sees Cusack’s Walter Gibson hit the road for the chance of a young man’s lifetime with a woman who is the “sure thing.” The woman in question is played by Sheridan in her film debut. Along the way, Walter meets his match in every way in the strong-willed coed Alison Bradbury. The pair’s cross-coutry trip leads to a growing bond that forces Walter to make an important choice.

The Sure Thing 30th Anniversary Edition will be released on Blu-ray March 24th. It will retail for $24.97 and can be pre-ordered online direct from Shout!
