The 2014 comedy sequel “Horrible Bosses 2″ arrives in on home video Tuesday, Feb. 24, in a Combo Pack that includes a Blu-ray, DVD and HD Digital.
The movie Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as working stiffs Nick, Dale and Kurt, respectively. It also marks the return of Jennifer Aniston (“We’re the Millers”) and Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (“Ray”), reprising their hilarious “Horrible Bosses” roles from the hit 2011 film. Chris Pine (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”) and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of being their own bosses.
The Warner Bros comedy is directed by Sean Anders, with the screenplay by Anders and John Morris (“We’re the Millers”).
The Blu-ray includes tons of extras including an extended cut of the comedy, and the featurettes “Let the Sexual Healing Begin,” “Who Invented the Shower Buddy,” “Nick Kurt Dale Inc: Employee Testimonials,” “It’s the Shower Buddy Infomercial,” “High Speed Crash Course” and “Off the Cuff: One Liners You Didn’t See.”
The DVD contains a featurette with Bateman, Day, Sudeikis and the filmmakers called “Endless Laughter Guaranteed!”
The critically acclaimed romantic drama “Beyond the Lights” also is available Tuesday on DVD and Blu-ray.
Noni (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is the music world’s latest superstar, but the pressures of fame have her on the edge until she meets Kaz (Nate Parker), a handsome young cop with political ambitions who’s been assigned to protect her.
Drawn to each other, Noni and Kaz fall fast and hard, despite the protests of Noni’s mother (Oscar nominee Minnie Driver) and Kaz’s father (Danny Glover). But Kaz’s love could be what Noni needs to find her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.
Released in theaters last fall, “Beyond the Lights” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song with “Grateful” by Diane Warren.
Special features on both the DVD and Blu-ray editions include deleted scenes with optional commentary by writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood, cinematographer Tami Reiker, and editor Terilyn Shropshire; a featurette called “Escape to Mexico 2.0”; another featurette called “Gary Theard: Boom Man” and more. On the Blu-ray only, extras include the director’s cut, a featurette called “Changing the Conversation,” a commentary on the whole film by Gina Prince-Bythewood, Tami Reiker and Terilyn Shropshire and the “Masterpiece” music video. A digital HD version also comes with the Blu-ray.
