Here Comes The Boom
Thursday 7th February 2013
Kevin James (Zookeeper), Salma Hayek (Grown Ups) and Henry Winkler team up in the inspirational family comedy Here Comes The Boom, coming to Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet on 18th March 2013 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The movie delivers big laughs as Kevin James creates the character of Scott Voss, a high school biology teacher who gets into the Octagon as a mixed martial arts fighter to raise money when his school's music programme is threatened.
James says, "Here Comes the Boom is a hero story of a guy at a failing school who has lost his inspiration and through this journey becomes inspired as a teacher. Through him, other people become inspired, especially at the school. He's an everyman who gets the rare opportunity to step it up".
The film also stars former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Bas Rutten (Paul Blart: Mall Cop).
The Here Comes The Boom Blu-ray and DVD bonus features include 17 deleted scenes, a gag reel and Here Comes the Cast, a featurette on the star studded cast. The Blu-ray also exclusively includes an additional six behind-the-scenes featurettes: The Pros gives fans a look at the real MMA fighters that appear in the film; The Three Amigos showcases the camaraderie of Mr. Voss' training team - Rutten, Winkler and DellaGrotte - and the fun they had on set; Back To School is a peek at Winkler "helping" James train; Learning How To Fight takes a look at James getting schooled in the world of MMA; Gino Vs. Ritchie chronicles a fun on-set challenge; and Disco Street Fighting, an in-character piece in which Niko creates a tutorial.
Former college wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy - most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek). But in his quest, as Scott becomes more and more committed to fighting for the students, he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
