Paramount Home Media has selected Mar. 22 as the street date for both DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions of writer/director Sean Anders’ smash comedy hit, Daddy’s Home.
The ARR is a sizzling fast 88 days to market and domestic box office receipts were a rockin’ $147.7 million.
2015 was a good year for Will Ferrell on the comedy front. Both Get Hard and Daddy’s Home were commercial successes — although the critics tended to lambast both films (heck, what do they know … funny is funny). Ferrell is either very good, or “disappointing,” but this second teaming with Mark Wahlberg left no doubt that they are a winning combination (The Other Guys pulled in $170 million during its theatrical run back in the summer of 2010).
As to bonus goodies, they are all exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU. Look for deleted and extended scenes, a blooper reel and seven featurettes — “The Making of Daddy’s Home,” “Daddy-Off,” “Daddy Daughter Dance,” “Halftime Stunt,” “Tony Hawk: Skater Double,” “Child’s Play” and “Hannibal Buress: The Perfect Houseguest.”
Daddy’s Home is not the only new DVD selections added to the release calendar by Paramount Home Media this past week.
Apr. 26 marks the farewell to Betty White and her friends with the three-disc release of Hot in Cleveland: Season Six, which is also being presented as a 17-disc all-in collection — Hot in Cleveland: The Complete Series.
May 3 will see the DVD release of Nickelodeon’s Let's Learn: S.T.E.M. (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math), Volume 2, which includes six fun-filled episodes from Nick’s popular kid-friendly series — Blaze and the Monster Machines, PAW Patrol, Team Umizoomi, Dora the Explorer, Blue's Clues and Bubble Guppies.
And speaking of Molly, Gil and friends — the Bubble Guppies — May 10 is the street date for Nickelodeon’s latest, Bubble Guppies: Fun on the Farm — featuring five adventures — “Have a Cow!,” “The Bubble Bee-athalon!,” “Bubble Kitty,” “The Spring Chicken is Coming” and “The Cowgirl Parade.”
Also streeting on May 10 is the double-disc Comedy Central presentation of Jim Gaffigan Show: Season One, plus full-series DVD releases of Have Gun Will Travel: The Complete Series (a 35-disc collection) and Untouchables: The Complete Series (a 31-disc set).
