CULVER CITY, CALIF. (December 17, 2012) – 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™ February 5th 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 program 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 18 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 five 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 showing off his classroom; “Learning How To Fight” takes a look at James getting schooled in the world of MMA; and “Gino Vs. Richie” chronicles a fun on-set challenge.
Synopsis: 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.
