Paramount Home Media unleashes “Daddy’s Home 2” and “Daddy’s Home” is super 4K Ultra Packs

Father’s Day is months away, but we can’t think of a funnier way to pre-celebrate all things daddies than with the uproarious family comedy Daddy’s Home 2 coming home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD February 20 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The original Daddy’s Home also arrives February 20 on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and both films will be available in a two-movie Blu-ray Double Feature pack.\

When it comes to raising their kids, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) finally have this co-parenting thing down.  That is, until Dusty’s macho dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s sweet-natured father (John Lithgow) come to town, throwing the whole family into complete chaos.  As old rivalries create new problems, Dusty and Brad’s partnership is put to the ultimate test in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy that gives new meaning to the term ‘blended family.’

Think ypou’ve seen the funny flicks? Think again: Daddy’s Home 2 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack feature more than 45 minutes of bonus content.  Go behind the scenes with five featurettes, deleted/ extended/alternate scenes and a hilarious gag reel.  In addition, the  Daddy’s Home 2  Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD discs boast a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead and the 4K Ultra HD disc features Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR), which delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors.

Proof that men have balls . . . on and off screen

No one has more balls than Richard Linklater, who wrote and directed the the critically-acclaimed sports comedy Everybody Wants Some!!, unless you count  the film’s star Tyler Hoechlin who recently played in the MLB All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game at Petco Park in San Diego. His co-stars, Glen Powell, J. Quinton Johnson and Juston Street also have balls: They, were on hand to cheer him on in support of the Blu-ray/DVD release of the fratboy frenzy film.

The film, now available on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand, follows freshman pitcher Jake as he arrives at college in the summer of 1980 and meets his new rowdy teammates. Together, they must navigate their way between girls, parties and baseball, all in the last weekend before school begins.

Jake (Blake Jenner) puts the moves on Beverly (Zoey Deutch). Think his balls will take over?

Maybe the film is so good because two cast members have balls in their blood: Tyler Hoechlin began playing baseball at the age of seven; Juston Street is a  former professional baseball pitcher.

Got the balls to watch a preview?
