The Landmark Boyz N The Hood Getting 4K UHD Release

Boyz N The Hood, the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story of growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighbourhood, is out on 4K Ultra HD™ on February 3 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Starring Ice Cube (22 Jump Street), Oscar* winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (A Few Good Men, Jerry Maguire), Morris Chestnut (Kick Ass 2), Oscar* nominee Angela Bassett (Waiting to Exhale, What’s Love Got to do With It) and Oscar* nominee Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), written and directed by Oscar* nominee John Singleton and produced by Steve Nicolaides.

South Central is a place where harmony co-exists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky’s best friend Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), 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 (Laurence Fishburne) 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.

Scanned in 4K resolution from the original camera negative and presented with High Dynamic Range. The disc includes immersive Dolby Atmos audio, in addition to the archival 5.1 and original theatrical 2.0 audio.
