It may not have been the awards player many of us thought it would be, but Chris Rock’s Top Five is still a comedic tour-de-force and in many circles thought to be the funniest film of 2014. Now, Paramount Home Media Distribution has announced that it will be bringing the star-studded film to Blu-Ray on March 17th, two weeks after it debuts on Digital HD.
The film finds Rock playing Andre Allen, a stand-up legend who returns to New York on the eve of his wedding to a vacuous socialite (Gabrielle Union). Walking around the city with the journalist (Rosario Dawson) sent to interview him, Andre begins to question his life thus far and reconsider the road that he’s already been travelling down.
Top Five features a host of all-star supporting players, including Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Tracy Morgan, J.B. Smoove, Sherri Shepherd, Michael Che, Jay Pharoah, Leslie Jones and Ben Vereen.
