Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced this past week that they will be bringing home the bacon — that is, a four-SKU array of home entertainment product offerings — on Mar. 21 for the directing team of Christophe Lourdelet and Garth Jennings’ animated smash, Sing.
The ARR comes in at a very-quick-to-market 88 days and ticket sales currently stand at a sizzling $265.4 million. With that level of box office performance it was only natural that a sequel would be planned for release … expect Sing 2 during the Christmas season of 2020.
As to the home entertainment launch of Sing, Universal has planned a stand-alone DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, a double-disc 3D/2D Blu-ray SKU and a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack.
Bonus goodies kick-off with three mini-movies — “Gunter Babysits,” “Love At First Sight” and “Eddie's Life Coach” — they include a featurette titled “The Making of the Mini-Movies.” There are five featurettes — “The Making of Sing,” “Finding the Rhythm: Editing Sing,” “Character Profiles” (a six-part piece featuring Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Nick Kroll, Tori Kelly, Tagon Egerton and Garth Jennings), “Sing and Dance” “The Sing Network” — and a Gunter one-liner mash-up titled “The Best of Gunter.”
Also making the move to home entertainment is director Baran bo Odar’s Sleepless, starring Jamie Foxx as Vincent, a Las Vegas undercover cop, who has the night — and case — of his life when the focus of his attention turns to rescuing his son from certain death after he, Foxx, does something beyond stupid. DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions will be available on Apr. 18.
The ARR for Sleepless is 95 days and ticket sales from the film’s mid-January theatrical launch currently stand at $20.1 million.
Bonus features include deleted scenes and featurette titled “One Long Night: The Making of Sleepless.”
