DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will being its 2015 home entertainment packaged media campaign on Jan. 6 with DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions of director Tate Taylor’s biopic on the life and music of James Brown, Get On Up.

The street date of Jan. 6 yields an ARR of 158 days and domestic ticket sales came in at $30.5 million.

Chadwick Boseman, who suited-up last year as baseball legend Jackie Robinson in 42, successfully channels the spirit of the late recording icon with an Oscar-worthy performance that captures both the spirit of the man and his incredible personal inner-strength — the heck with Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell or Diana Ross, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” should have been his theme song.

Bonus features (limited to the Blu-ray SKU) include commentary from producer/director Tate Taylor (The Help), deleted, extended and alternate scenes, six featurettes and extended versions of Chadwick Boseman performing a number of James Brown’s classics.
