Sony announces Boyz N The Hood on 4K Ultra
I grew up on hip hop and to this day it is about the only thing I listen to. I was and still am a huge Ice Cube fan and remember going to the theater back in 1991 to see Ice Cube step onto the big screen for the first time alongside Cuba Gooding Jr., Laurence Fishburne and Morris Chestnut for Boyz N The Hood directed by the late John Singleton. I love this movie and now fans can bring the film home on 4K Ultra for the first time.
Boyz N The Hood follows the coming-of-age story of growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood. It is a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy, an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky, a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky's best friend Tre, who aspires to a brighter future beyond "The Hood." In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and retaliation seems the only recourse.
In addition to the film on 4K Ultra this release features bonus content including commentary, deleted scenes, auditions, music videos, featurette, a tribute to John Singleton and more. Head back to the hood and grab your copy of Boyz N The Hood when it hits 4K Ultra on February 4th from Sony Entertainment.
