Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is bringing the pranks into homes this April Fool’s Day with the early digital release of Impractical Jokers: The Movie on April 1, 2020, only five weeks after its successful theatrical debut. The film, an extension of the wildly successful Impractical Jokers series, was directed by Chris Henchy (Daddy’s Home, “Eastbound & Down”). A truTV original production and produced by Funny Or Die, Impractical Jokers: The Movie carries a suggested retail price of $19.99 for the Digital ($24.99 in Canada) and is rated PG-13.

“Impractical Jokers raised the stakes bringing their hijinks to the big screen and we couldn’t be more proud of their impressive box office debut,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS, & truTV. “The unwavering support of their fans prove that this comedy franchise continues to provide endless laughs and entertainment that we are pleased to bring into homes.”

“Impractical Jokers first premiered on truTV to much fanfare in December 2011 and quickly became a hit, especially among young adults,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation & Family Marketing. “The power of the loyal fanbase has proven the sky's the limit for this comedy franchise, and we are eager to bring home the laughter and antics of their first feature film for the whole family to enjoy.”

“For all our wonderful fans who've been requesting, we're happy to announce that Impractical Jokers: The Movie will be available in your homes to watch digitally on April 1st”, said The Tenderloins. “Hoping we can provide some laughs to families and friends at a time when we can all surely use some.”

Impractical Jokers: The Movie stars James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, Joe Gatto, and Sal Vulvano, also known as the comedy troupe The Tenderloins, playing themselves in a fictional story of a humiliating high school mishap from the early nineties. Featuring appearances from Paula Abdul, Jaden Smith, and Joey Fatone, the movie combines the fictional narrative with real life footage of over-the-top punishments and callbacks to classic moments from the series. Once the Impractical Jokers hit the road, they compete in hidden camera challenges for the chance to turn back the clock and find redemption.

Impractical Jokers: The Movie is produced by Gatto, Murray, Quinn, Vulcano, Henchy, and Funny Or Die’s Jim Ziegler and Buddy Enright. Executive producers include Jack Rovner and Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell.

"Just Mercy" Movie Review, Coming March 24 to Digital, April 14 to DVD & Blu-Ray! #JustMercy

Disclosure: I received a copy of "Just Mercy" on Blu-Ray from Warner Bros. Entertainment in exchange for my post. No other compensation was exchanged or received. The opinions below are mine and mine alone.

“Just Mercy is urgent, searing and powerful, led by a first-rate cast.” - Mark Kennedy, Associated Press


Just Mercy



Own it Early on Digital on March 24

Blu-ray and DVD debut on April 14

Based on the true story of a hero, “Just Mercy” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“The Glass Castle,” “Short Term 12”), from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on Bryan Stevenson’s bestselling memoir.

Michael B. Jordan (“Creed,” “Black Panther”) and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx (“Ray,” “Baby Driver,” “Django: Unchained”) and Brie Larson (“Room,” “Short Term 12,” “Captain Marvel”) star in “Just Mercy,” an inspiring drama that brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen.

The main cast also includes Rob Morgan (“Mudbound,” TV’s “Stranger Things”) as Herbert Richardson, a fellow prisoner who also sits on death row awaiting his fate. Tim Blake Nelson (“Wormwood,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”) as Ralph Myers, whose pivotal testimony against Walter McMillian is called into question. Rafe Spall (“The Big Short,” “The Ritual”) as Tommy Chapman, the district attorney who is fighting to uphold Walter’s conviction and sentence. O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton,” “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”) as Anthony Ray Hinton, another wrongly convicted death row inmate whose cause is taken up by Bryan and Karan Kendrick (“The Hate U Give,” “Hidden Figures”) as Walter’s wife, Minnie McMillian, who stands by her husband.

The film was produced by Gil Netter, Asher Goldstein and Jordan. Stevenson, Mike Drake, Niija Kuykendall, Gabriel Hammond, Daniel Hammond, Scott Budnick, Jeff Skoll and Charles D. King served as executive producers.

Cretton co-wrote the screenplay with Andrew Lanham (“The Glass Castle”), based on Stevenson’s book “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption.” Published in 2014 by Spiegel & Grau, the book has spent more than 180 weeks on The New York Times Best Sellers List and counting. It was also named one of the year’s best books by a number of top publications, including TIME Magazine. For the book, Stevenson also won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence, an NAACP Image Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Nonfiction.

Cretton’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Brett Pawlak (“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”), production designer Sharon Seymour (“Argo”), editor Nat Sanders (“Moonlight”) and composer Joel P West (“Short Term 12”), all of whom previously collaborated with the director on “The Glass Castle.” They are joined by costume designer Francine Jamison-Tanchuck (“Detroit,” “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”).

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Endeavor Content, One Community, Participant Media, MACRO, Netter Productions and Outlier Society, “Just Mercy.”

The film will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on April 14. The Blu-ray features a Blu-ray disc with the film and special features in hi-definition and a Digital version of the movie.

The Blu-ray disc of “Just Mercy” will feature a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar. Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

“Just Mercy” will also be available on Movies Anywhere. Using the free Movies Anywhere app and website, consumers can access all their eligible movies by connecting their Movies Anywhere account with their participating digital retailer accounts.

Fans can also own “Just Mercy” via purchase from digital retailers beginning March 24.

“Just Mercy” is based on the powerful and thought-provoking true story of young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the main testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings, as well as overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them.

“Just Mercy” Blu-ray contains the following special features:
· Making ‘Mercy’
· This Moment Deserves
· The Equal Justice Initiative
· Deleted Scenes

“Just Mercy” DVD contains the following special features:
· Making ‘Mercy’

My Review and Thoughts:
GREAT story and movie! Jamie Foxx is amazing! I didn't really know who Michael B. Jordan was until now! Well done! This is based on a true story that happened in 1987. I can't believe that when I was 12 years old, this was still going on in America. When I was being told that all people all equal, in some areas in the United States, they weren't being treated that way. Sad, and so scary for them. It's hard to believe that black people are and were put in jail for crimes that they didn't commit. I still today see black people arrested and treated so roughly and with so much disrespect, it's really unbelievable that it's allowed. I'm glad they all wear cameras now so that all policemen will be held accountable for their bad behaviors.

I watched 2 movies in 2 days, both of people one white, and one black, who were guilty until proven innocent. It's a tough pill to swallow that this still goes on today in this crazy world we live in.
