Warner Home Video has tabbed Aug. 26 as the release date for director Frank Coraci’s romantic comedy reteaming Drew Barrymore with Adam Sandler for the third time.
Titled Blended, it will be available as separate DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (with UltraViolet) SKUs. This late August street date yields a relatively quick-to-market ARR of 95 days. Ticket sales are currently posted at $44.2 million.
Following the success of 50 First Dates (2004) and The Wedding Singer (1998), it was only natural that two would hook up for another comedy outing. This time around the meet-cut relationship begins when Lauren (Barrymore), a divorcee with two children, going out on a blind date with Jim (Sandler)!
It’s a disaster, but they have a chance meeting in the aftermath that sets things on the proper — although very zig-zagged — romantic course which eventually finds the two in Africa with all of their kids for what amounts to one very bizarre “family” vacation.
Bonus nuggets include a gag reel, deleted scenes a multi-part featurette titled “Safari” and another featurette titled “Adam and Drew: Back Together Again.”
Also added to Warner’s release calendar this week is the Kevin Bacon hit serial killer series, The Following: The Complete Second Season. DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack collections will be available for fans to savor on Oct. 7.
