John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood (1992) starring Ice Cube and Cuba Gooding Jr. has been upgraded for release on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray. The film will arrive on February 4, 2020, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in a 2-disc edition with 4k Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and Digital Copy, as well as Limited Edition SteelBook from Best Buy.
Boyz N’ the Hood on 4k Blu-ray is presented in 2160p resolution at 1.85:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 that increases the color range potential. The audio has been upgraded to Dolby Atmos from the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack provided the last Blu-ray release a few years ago.
There are three new bonus features that include a John Singleton tribute, theatrical press conference, and behind-the-scenes footage.
And, previously-released bonus materials include deleted scenes, commentary from John Singleton, and audition videos, as well as the featurette “Friendly Fire” and music video “Growin’ Up In The Hood.” However, it isn’t uncommon for audio commentaries to be featured on the 4k Blu-ray as well.
