Everybody’s back for a fresh cut when “Barbershop: The Next Cut,” a presentation of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM) and New Line Cinema, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM, arrives onto Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD in July. Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are reunited in “Barbershop: The Next Cut,” directed by Malcolm D. Lee (“The Best Man” films, “Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins”). The film features a starring ensemble cast including Regina Hall (“Think Like a Man”), Anthony Anderson (TV’s “Black-ish”), Eve (“Whip It”), and J.B. Smoove (TV’s “The Millers”), with Oscar winner Common (Best Song, “Selma”) and Nicki Minaj (“The Other Woman”).
It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times, big laughs and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and his friends to come together in an effort to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.
Lee directed the film from a screenplay by Kenya Barris (“Black-ish”) & Tracy Oliver (“The Neighbors”), based on characters created by Mark Brown. “Barbershop: The Next Cut” is produced by Robert Teitel and George L. Tillman, Jr., reteaming from the first two “Barbershop” films, and Ice Cube. Malcolm D. Lee, Becki Cross Trujillo, Ronald G. Muhammad and Jeff Kwatinetz served as executive producers.
“Barbershop: The Next Cut”, will be available on July 26 on Blu-ray for $29.98, and includes the film in high definition on Blu-ray disc and a digital version of the movie in Digital HD with UltraViolet*. Fans can also own “Barbershop: The Next Cut” via purchase from digital retailers beginning on July 5.
