SANTA MONICA, CA (September 24, 2019) — Emmy® winner Shia LaBeouf (Transformers franchise, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) stars alongside Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, Suspiria, The Social Network) in “the sweetest darn film of the decade” (Film Inquiry) when The Peanut Butter Falcon arrives on Digital November 5 and on Blu-ray (plus Digital), DVD and On Demand November 12 from Lionsgate. The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh™ film, about a young man with Down syndrome who dreams of becoming a professional wrestler, also stars Oscar® nominee John Hawkes (2010, Best Supporting Actor, Winter’s Bone), Zack Gottsagen (Bulletproof), Oscar® nominee and Emmy® winner Thomas Haden Church (2004, Best Supporting Actor, Sideways), and Oscar® nominee Bruce Dern (2013, Best Actor, Nebraska.) From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine, The Peanut Butter Falcon is “full of heart and packed with humor” (Jeremy Dick, MovieWeb).
The Peanut Butter Falcon follows Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome who runs away from a residential nursing home to fulfill his dream of attending the pro wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). On the road, Zak meets Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small-time outlaw who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together, they set out on a wild, life-changing journey and try to convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing-home employee charged with bringing Zak back, to join them.
