Toronto, ON, August 7– Join five highly competitive friends as they hit the ground running in the most epic game of the summer when “Tag” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital. From Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema and Broken Road production, this true story (We’re not kidding!) will now be yours to take home.
“Tag” is directed by Jeff Tomsic (TV’s “Broad City”), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me,” “Wedding Crashers”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”), Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker,” “The Town,” “The Avengers” films).
The “Tag” screenplay was written by Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”) and Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”). The screen story is by Mark Steilen, which is based on The Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It,” by Russell Adams. The film is produced by Todd Garner and Mark Steilen, with Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter and Hans Ritter serving as executive producers.
"Tag" will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD. The Blu-ray Combo Pack features a Blu-ray disc with the film and special features in hi-definition, a DVD with the film in standard definition and a Digital version of the movie.

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, this outrageous comedy shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.
