‘Blockers’ hits Digital HD this June
The comedy hit Blockers will be streamable next month
The comedy-hit “Blockers” now has a Digital HD release date, with a Blu-ray and DVD release to follow shortly after. The film will release on Digital HD and the digital movie app ‘Movies Anywhere’ on June 19th, followed by the Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand release on July 3, 2018.
The comedy did well in theaters, opening third against the thriller “A Quiet Place”. “Blockers” still grossed over $20M on opening weekend, and made over $81M worldwide. “Blockers” stars John Cena (Trainwreck, Sisters), Leslie Mann (The Other Woman, This Is 40) and Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad), the parents attempt to foil their daughters’ prom night sex pact. The film is a gender-swapped spin on the classic teen sex-comedy, filled with outrageous antics from the parents as their daughters take control of their epic prom night.
The film was the directorial debut of Kay Cannon (writer of the Pitch Perfect series), and was produced by the same team that brought us “Neighbors” and “This Is the End”. The film also features quite a few teenage newcomers, including Kathryn Newton (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Big Little Lies), Geraldine Viswanathan (EMO The Muscial), Gideon Adlon (“American Crime,” “Girl Meets World”), Graham Phillips (“Riverdale,” “The Good Wife”), Miles Robbins (“Mozart in the Jungle”) and Jimmy Bellinger (“The Middle”). The film’s comedic supporting cast members include Gary Cole (“Veep,” Office Space), Gina Gershon (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Hannibal Buress (“Broad City,” Neighbors 2), Colton Dunn (“Key and Peele,” “Superstore”) and June Diane Raphael (“Grace and Frankie,” “New Girl”).
