Eddie Murphy Leads an All-Star Cast in the Enduring Classic, Arriving June 28, 2022






Still beloved 30 years after its original release, BOOMERANG arrives for the first time ever on Blu-ray June 28, 2022 from Paramount Home Entertainment.



Eddie Murphy’s portrayal of hotshot advertising executive Marcus Graham made BOOMERANG a hit when it was first released in theaters on July 1, 1992. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Robin Givens, Halle Berry, David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence, Grace Jones, Geoffrey Holder, and Eartha Kitt, Chris Rock, John Witherspoon, Tisha Campbell, and Melvin Van Peebles, this celebrated comedy was ahead of its time in playfully challenging stereotypes. The movie’s hit soundtrack, featuring Babyface, Toni Braxton, and Boyz II Men, topped the Billboard charts and earned triple platinum status.



The BOOMERANG Blu-ray includes access to a digital copy of the film, as well as the following legacy bonus content:

  • Commentary by director Reginald Hudlin
  • Extended and deleted scenes with director's commentary:
    • Thanksgiving at Marcus' Place
    • Strangé's Arrival at the Dinner
    • Bony T Asks Marcus About Sex with Jackie
    • First Dinner Between Jackie & Marcus
    • Dinner Between Gerard & Angela


Synopsis

Marcus Graham (Murphy) may be a success in his industry, but he’s also an insatiable womanizer who’s completely unprepared for his new boss, Jacqueline (Robin Givens), a female version of Marcus in terms of all things romantic.

For me this film was near the beginning of the end of Eddies live action film career. Other than Nutty Professor, this and the rest of his live action catalog of movies were very subpar to pretty forgettable.

When I wrote my review today, I was surprised to see it did decent business.

In my memory, everything after "Coming to America" kinda flopped, but I was wrong.

I think "Another 48 Hrs" and "Boomerang" disappointed given EM's star power, but they still made money.

"Harlem Nights" was borderline in terms of profitability - though a major disappointment given the cast.

"Distinguished Gentleman" seems to be the 1st EM movie that lost money.

But not the last!
