It’s been 20 years since John Singleton’s Boyz N the Hood debuted in theaters. To mark the occasion, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the film on Blu-ray with deluxe treatment on July 19.
Singleton cast actors Ice Cube (Friday), Cuba Gooding Jr. (Best Supporting Actor, Jerry McGuire), Nia Long (Big Momma’s House), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), and Angela Bassett (Waiting to Exhale) and others in key roles that would form careers.
Special features include “The Enduring Significance of Boyz N the Hood,” a look back with the cast and filmmakers at the last 20 years and the impact the film has made. The Blu-ray will also feature “Friendly fire: Making of an Urban Legend,” commentary with John Singleton; audition footage with Ice Cube, Angela Bassett, Morris Chestnut, and Tyra Ferrell; and deleted scenes.
